The Frames @ First Ave. Main Room 4/17/07
The Frames are from Dublin, Ireland. They must really love touring, as they've released two live albums, and according to the guitarist's Rob Bochnik, he's been recording all their live shows using a AKG C60 Microphone. Plus, they really love their encores. For the encore in Minneapolis (4/17/2007), they had four songs! And I think they do that four-song-encore every night for this tour, which consists of a violin solo, a guitar/violin duet, and two full band songs. When I say full band, I mean they have a pretty full band: two guitarists, a bassist, a keyboardist, a violinist, and a drummer.

I absolutely loved the Frames including one of their tour managers in who hooked me up with a Frames live in Seatlle DVD. They reminded me a lot of The Magic Numbers and Elbow. Thier songs just build on you, with so many pieces to the band. The Frames were looking for something to do all day downtown, next time I'll have to play some tennis tennis with these Irish Lads.. I give you their violinist. -Brody
