Midnight at the Olympia, January 31.
Your band has just signed one of the biggest managers in the
business; you are about to go on tour in the states and be promoted to
the hilt; you are only halfway through the gig; so what do you decide to
do? If you're the lead singer of the Frames you scale the 25 foot balcony
and dive off it. Glen Hansard is fucking mental.
In other words, this was another amazing Frames live performance.
Belting out tracks from Fitzcaraldo and Another Love Song - songs like
Monument, Fitzcaraldo, the Dancer, Red Chord and the soon to be
re-released Revelate. The Frames once again had the crowd
in their pockets. Even more so with their redition of the Pixies Debaser
with guest guitarist Luka Bloom.
US bound, they left the people lucky enough to get into the sold-out
performance stunned. For anyone who wasn't there, tough shit, the gig was
awesome. Here's wishing the Frames all the best in the States, see ya in
