One night they play the celebrated mainstream venue of Shepherd’s Bush Empire, the next night they’re playing a dodgy hard-to-find pub in Dalston – The Bullet Holes in the pub window looked fresh:
Don’t even get me started on the crazy old man who showed us a kidney stone then started making out with a photograph of his dead mother.
Supported by a few bands including Luna Belle who my friend really liked (lusted), Fol Chen finally hit the tiny stage at about half 11. They rocked the block. They have lots of energy, fabulous 3-way vocals and cool tunes! They had the crowd dancing and converted my friend into a fan. Quite the feat to impress my friend who already had the highlight of his life earlier that day – meeting the world’s tallest couple:
My friend in the middle is 6”2.
Their new album comes out on June 14th (Fol Chen’s, not the world’s tallest couple’s).
