This Week's Show: Foals at Bowery Ballroom/Music Hall of Williamsburg

This week was almost another toss-up between Best Coast at Music Hall of Williamsburg on Thursday, September 30th and Foals at Bowery Ballroom/Music Hall of Williamsburg on Friday, October 1st/Saturday, October 2nd but (and I hate to say this) Best Coast failed to impress me last time I saw her. I went to her free gig at South Street Seaport over the summer and it just seemed like the band was disconnected and tired. Granted it was insanely hot and sweaty and they were playing in front of Free Energy, which is an indecent arrangement of set times if there ever was one, but if there is one thing I ask from performers it’s that they act like they are having a good time up there. I’m still a Best Coast die-hard, so hopefully the indoor, ticketed gig will restore my faith in the girl.

But This Week’s Show has to go to Foals. The British band is coming to Bowery Ballroom and Music Hall of Williamsburg at the end of this week as part of their North American tour in support of their incredible second album Total Life Forever. It’s no secret that I harbor an intense desire to recreate the Skins Secret Party, so I can’t wait to dance it out in one of my favorite venues (MHOW) on Saturday. I also plan on getting in some heavy eye-flirting time with the lead singer.
