One of my Louisville friends, Rachel, does music promotion work in London and got me in on the guest list to see Franz Ferdinand in Stockholm tonight. Iida went with me and we had very nice seats. The show was at Cirkus which has a capacity of about 2000. It is the same venue where I will be going to see A Camp next month.
The crowd was electric and it seemed that all the people there were totally excited about the show… except the band. They sounded fantastic, but their enthusiasm was that of a band whohad played the same songs for the thousandth night in a row.
