Did anyone make it to the show tonight?  So far gets my vote for most fun show of the year.  It takes a lot to get a DC crowd moving, and !!! managed to pull it off.  People were dancing, sweating, clapping...it was bliss.  And I'll be damned if "Intensify" isn't one of the greatest live songs EVER!

Fathers Day ended up going later than expected.  Couldn't make it out to the Black Cat.

yeah, it was a fun show. i liked his "what's up DC? franz ferdinand sold out?" comment referring to people not moving around too much...but the crowd energy for the last two songs was great.

I saw these guys at Coachella and despite the fact that it was 105 degrees at the time they took the stage, and people were hardly moving to ANY bands, they STILL managed to get us moving for their set.  So much fun, if Franz hadn't been on the same night, I so would have been at the Black Cat.

Oh my what a great/intense/sweaty show.  Franz Ferdinand could not have been more fun than that.  Weeee!
 
 Ps. I was in the front row and good lord, they are not a pleasant smelling band.

I had bought my FF tickets before I even knew they were playing at the Black Cat, so I went up to the Ottobar Saturday night to see them, and man, was it worth it.  I love to dance and from that angle it was the best concert I've ever been to.
 
 Afterwards I chatted a bit with a couple of the band members--the curly-haired guy said Franz Ferdinand had offered them an opening spot on their tour but "weren't going to give them any money."  Good thing for FF they said no--!!!would've blown them out of the water every single frickin' concert.

!!! must really be in it for the money...(I know I'll screw it up a bit but) Nic Offer's quote at Coachella was "I see all of you singing along out there.  Stop downloading this sh*t and pay my rent, b*$ches!".  Actually, it was probably the most memorable stage quote of the whole weekend.

he had a couple of quotable lines during that set...
 
 "we turned down a toyota commercial for you guys!"
 
 and then he started talking about all the death and destruction going on in the world...and he said something to the effect of "all i can really do is just forget about it all and party." his delivery was priceless, though.
