In true YTC fashion, I didn’t really know much about the Friendly Fires before this show.  I had heard a lot about the Friendly Fires, and they were supposed to be incredible live.  I decided to give the Friendly Fires a shot and was far from disappointed.

Friendly Fires @ Club Nokia Concert Review

Although I didn’t know any of the Friendly Fires songs, it was impossible to not dance throughout the show.  The Friendly Fires were a bomb of energy and blew up Club Nokia. In addition to the Friendly Fires charisma, the crowd’s zaniness was off-the-charts.  Everyone in the house seemed to be dancing or singing along throughout the entire set.

A few things that I really dug about the Friendly Fires set was that the lead singer,  Ed MacFarlane, was constantly engaging the audience. Whether it be just jumping around the stage and jamming out, to jumping off the stage and singing amongst the crowd (which happened multiple times during the show).  Ed had it on lock.

I also really dug that Friendly Fires had a live brass section. The horns added a level of funkiness to the Friendly Fires sound…and I love da funk!

In closing, I wish I had more to say about Friendly Fires than just that I had a great time and would def see them again.  If you are into getting down and shaking your booty, you have to check  Friendly Fires out, as they will not disappoint.

If you hate dancing and having a good time, I strongly suggest not listening to Friendly Fires and possibly consider taking up making scale models of ancient civilizations.

If you have ever seen the Friendly Fires, or were at this show, make sure to comment on this post,  and let us know what you think about them…because “When You Tell Concerts…It’s Cooler!” – poppinoff
