Live: Foals, Freelance Whales, and The Naked & Famous


Foals are the epitome of organized chaos. I was fortunate enough to catch them at their sold-out show at Terminal 5 (NY) with great up-and-coming kiwi band The Naked & Famous and Brooklyn’s own Freelance Whales, and they blew my high expectations away. Incredible how a band can possess so much talent. Props to lead singer/guitarist Yannis Philippakis for sounding pitch-perfect, killing it on the guitar, and fueling the moshpit with his insane antics.

Highlights:
-Olympic Airways
-Total Life Forever
-Spanish Sahara
-Red Socks Pugie
-Yannis Philippakis’s stage dives
-Electric Bloom (crowd chants of “it’s just another hospital”)
-Two Steps Twice (Philippakis crowd surfing while playing Two Steps Twice on the guitar)
