I am on a concert frenzy!
Opening acts: The Annuals (quite good), The Walkmen
and then the Kaiser Chiefs!
I only knew just a couple songs of theirs, but I enjoyed the concert nonetheless. The music sounded great live, maybe even better than the recordings. Their drummer was rather amazing and had quite the stage presence. I loved how they had a fan blowing on him the entire time for that windswept hair look, although flowing towards his face.
Their frontman Ricky Wilson seemed a tad billigerent and insane, and he really wanted the crowd to go nuts. He even surfed the crowd to get to the bar, requesting a drink - was it a rum and coke?...
The crowd went crazy during "I Predict a Riot", and it was quite awesome being surrounded by that kind of energy.
