Yannis Philippakis of Foals

On October 2, 2010, the UK dance-punk band Foals played a sold out show at Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn, New York.  It was my first exposure to their music and I loved it!  I luckily trusted my gut instinct tonight and decided not to stand in the front row and I am so glad I listened to my inner voice.  The energy of the crowd was so intense, a mosh pit, crowd surfing, body slamming and stage divining occurred during almost every song.  It looked great from a far and I am so glad I wasn’t in the middle of it!  Lead singer Yannis Philippakis was all over the place.  He sang, played guitar, jumped up on the speakers, played drums and even stage dove.  It was pretty awesome.

I received a request to take a video of “Spanish Sahara” and I am pleased to report that video of the track will be coming soon – so stay tuned.  The final two songs were really great as both the crowd and the band just lost control and really turned the Music Hall of Williamsburg out.  During the last song “Two Steps, Twice,” half of the crowd was dancing on stage and Yannis walked through the crowd and played guitar before getting back on stage and taking one final dive into the audience.  It was a really fun show.  I met Yannis backstage and a photo of that encounter will also be coming soon.

See another picture of the Jewish and Greek God Yannis as well as the set list after the jump.
