Saw them live at Rock Werchter a few days ago and it was absolutely amazing. I saw bands like Queens Of The Stone Age, The National, Arctic Monkeys, Elbow and Coldplay there but Fleet Foxes were the best of them all. Especially The Shrine/An Argument is brilliant live.

They also got a lot of crowd response, maybe a bit too much. They had to wait sometimes to begin a new song. Robin seemed uncomfortable and didn't know what was going on. He even asked "are you guys on tv or what?" which was not the case.

Awesome, nielsgov. I'll be seeing them on the 14th. The venue they're playing here is awesome. Saw them play the same one a couple years back and it was one of the best shows I've seen.

22nd for me (and I believe UiU is going as well. It's a sold out show in a cool venue I've never been to), I'm also psyched. Listened to the new album again yesterday in prep.

You guys are bumming me out. You could say I have the blues. Of a helpless nature.

Seeing them next Saturday. This gives me an excuse to indulge in one of the best discographies of any new band the rest of this week.

They were fantastic last night, and the venue was a beautiful location to see them. I was worried that the sound wouldn't be anywhere as good as the last time I saw them since it was outdoors, but it ended up being far better than I expected. It was fun to watch the crowd get more and more into it as the show went on as well. I'd post the setlist, but it looks like they've been as static as U2 lately.

UiU, where were you location wise?

Glad you enjoyed it. I really want to see them at their own show too and not just at a festival.

Forgot to mention that I really, really loved their show last week. They're total professionals; the older tracks have gotten tougher and more confident, and the newer ones are still strong. What I really loved was how well the show was paced; it was basically a perfect setlist, with Blue Ridge Mountains and Helplessness Blues closing the show very strongly.
