FMLY's F'ing Crazy Night
Thanks to Blah, Blah, Bitch, Blah, Blah for taking pictures!
And what a crazy night it was. First of all I just wanted to address a couple complaints we had regarding Japanther's set. They were supposed to play a full set with Ninjasonik and last night and the night before at Temporary Spaces. Unfortunately literally the day before the show Ian Vanek of Japanther was forced to fly to Washington for emergency dental surgery. If you are reading this, I hope you are feeling better and can come out to LA again soon. Ian and Matt were then faced with a tough decision. Not wanting to disappoint their fans, they came up with an alternative solution. They decided that Matt would perform Japanther songs with the help of their good friends Ninjasonik. I'm sorry for those of you who were disappointed but Ian has promised us that in 2009 Japanther will return to LA to play as a full band with FMLY.
"Half of Japanther was two states away getting emergency dental surgery, this couldn't be avoided and came on very quickly. We value all people excited to dance to our group but also value our members health. We hope to play another FMLY show very soon."
-Ian of Japanther
Anyway the night started out with an amazing interactive performance by Lucky Dragons involving gongs, purposely shorted out instrument cables and a ton of other odds and ends. If you missed them this time around, don't worry, we plan on making Lucky Dragons a bigger part of the FMLY.
Up next we were graced with the ever cute Blackblack who's familiar indie pop tunes lifted our spirits and got us singing along.
Funeral Party brought the house down with hit after hit.
And then Ninjasonik and Matt of Japanther brought the house DOWN with a combined set over an hour long. I have never seen so many LA people dance that much at a show before.
Go to Blah, Blah, Bitch, Blah, Blah to check out a ton more pictures.
Look out because in the next day or two we will be posting up video from the show. Thank you all for coming and making it a wonderful night.
