We all know that Frightened Rabbit is one of my all-time favorite bands (and not only b/c they’re seriously some of the nicest guys in the world. And make phenomenally crass jokes, sometimes involving Koalas.) I got to know them last Spring via a chance Twitter ‘meeting’ (turns out the Gordy had a dentist named Aubrey, was a Digg fan and also thinks *MY* phenomenally crass jokes are funny. WIN.) and saw them live at Webster Hall in NYC. After the show, and after quite a few vodka+ sodas, we decided to throw another show during their trip in SF. I texted my friend Ryan, head of programming at Revision3, and said “We’re going to do something AWESOME.”
We were right.
(Fast forward to the 48-minute mark to hear them cover one of my other favorite songs, “Fake Empire” from The National.)
