Franz Ferdinand Show Moved To Avalon



When? April 21. Where? Avalon. Who? Read on...

When a band stretches its sound beyond listener expectations, they’re either praised for their innovation or slammed for messing up a good thing. Franz Ferdinand’s latest album Tonight: Franz Ferdinand landed somewhere between pass and fail with the general consensus being “This is a great group and they’re headed in the right direction.” The record is not flawless, and “Some Girls” is no “Take Me Out,” but it’s catchy and clever. Frontman Alex Kapranos knows his way around a pen—check out Sound Bites, his account of eating on tour—and though his talents aren’t fully realized on Tonight, lines like “you don’t know the pseudonyms I use for you” paired with a boot-stomping drum beat are enough to keep things interesting. None of that same-old, same-old, except onstage where they still bring the energy that electrified audiences in the first place. Venue change: Avalon Theater, 3065 S. State, 7:30 p.m. All-ages.
