Friendly Fires and Semi Precious Weapons


I love Semi Precious Weapons. The music is just rock and roll, but the singer is so flamboyant and just so likeable, even when he calls you a cunt. I especially love him because he loves my hair or necklace or whatever he was gesturing at. I think he was gesturing at me, so I will just say that he WAS gesturing “I love this” at me while circling his head/neckital region. Neckital???
They were fun to shoot and it was absolutely fun watching the audience too. Here are some pics:

If you get a chance to see them, watch the bassist. He is as crazy as the singer on stage. At the end of the show, he was pretending to be pitching, yes…like in baseball…see the pic on the left just above. He looks like a pitcher just about to throw the ball.
Go touchdown! LOL!

Semi Precious Weapons at Mercury Lounge, NYCI pulled something just watching this.

Up next were the very disco-y/danceable Friendly Fires from the St. Albans UK. The babyfaced frontman could double as Hugh Grant’s stunt double in the dancing scene in “Love Actually”. If you’ve seen the movie, and FF, you’ll know what I mean…you know…that Pointer Sister’s song…JUMP??? That scene???

I didn’t really get the shoegaze part, but then again I was preoccupied watching the singer not slip on the water soaked floor. How did that happen?Yeah, I’d see them again. I just hope that middle-aged idiot with glasses who was standing behind me telling me to turn off my flash doesn’t show up. Ever since those damn condos opened up, there’ve been nothing but unsavory (condo-fied) characters showing up at the show. If it’s too bright for you…move. Or buy some sunglasses and try to look cool in a club.
