Does It Offend You, Yeah? @ The Entry 9/11/08

Does it Offend You, Yeah? in Minneapolis 9/11/08Does it Offend You Yeah in Minneapolis 9/11/08

After seeing the Fratellis I snuck into the Entry, to check out Does It Offend You, Yeah? I figure they're from England and they've gotten a lot of buzz in NME, they must be good.

Dripping with sweat after the first song, I knew it was the right move to check these guys out. A lot like Cut Copy it was non stop dancing/rocking, except these guys were much more guitar driven and quite a bit heavier.
Steve is ready- set- jump-crowd surfing Fuck I lost my camera!!!!!!

Unfortunately The Rock N Roll Star lost his camera crowd surfing. He also was almost dropped, and another surfer hit his head on a speaker. I wouldn't recommend jumping into the crowd unless you are a pro.

The only downfall to the show was the band didn't play the Bloc Party esq. song called "Epic Last Song". Here's the tune below.

The Fratellis @ First Avenue 9/11/08



The best band in Scotland at the moment, The Fratellis put on quite the show. A nearly sold out show, first avenue was packed with another great show as usual. This was the second time seeing the Scots, and they reminded me even more of Oasis this time around. The Rock N Roll Star and I were sold on The Fratellis playing a Arctic Monkeys cover "When the Sun Comes Down" or "Leave When The Lights Come Down" but it just turned out to be one of their own. Believe me those comparisons are compliments. The Fratellis added a fourth member to the band for their live show and the keys definitely made an impact. The Fratellis were playing in support of their sophomore album "Here We Stand", released back in June. Another Brilliant album just like "Costello Music".

Everyone was on their feet, jumping and flailing their arms to Chelsea Dagger, and Babi Fratelli was the finishing touch. Unlike the Arctic Monkeys these guys actually played an Encore. Still love the Monkeys, but the Fratellis are climbing up to the top.
