Frightened Rabbit

Sunday night, I went with Sarah and a friend of hers to see Frightened Rabbit play at a local club. I didn't know a lot about their music, but the songs I'd heard were all good, and Sarah recommended the group. I now recommend them, too. The show was very good, with great energy and the band being amazingly nice to those drunken members of the audience who felt they had to contribute to the entertainment.

These guys are Scottish, however, so even though the mix was pretty good for a club, I had a lot of trouble making out the lyrics to many of the songs. I don't know why I find it hard to understand Scottish accents, but I frequently do. I clearly need to travel there!

During the show, I stood back in a corner, alone and acutely aware that I was the oldest person by far anywhere in sight. That statement may make it sound like I didn't have a good time, but I really did; being in that situation is fine with me. In my head, I'm still sixteen, so I fit in fine.

The band closed with this song, which I quite like. WARNING: EXPLICIT LYRICS.

Speaking of Scottish bands, have you discovered Camera Obscura?
