fleet foxes at the tabernacle

Last night was my first concert of the year. And, I must say, what a show it was! The Fleet Foxes brought what might have one of the best shows I have been to, ever. I’m not just saying that because they played every song of theirs that I love, but because they played them with such enthusiasm, zeal, and humility. I cannot attest to the genuineness of their appreciation for the fans, but they often seemed to be overwhelmed by the appreciation shown by the audience.  It was as if the band was saying, “Yes we get paid to do this, but we’re still honored and humbled that you came out and supported our dreams.”

From the moment the band came on stage and until their final departure, the Fleet Foxes provided a grand evening of wonderful and energetic music. I would highly recommend the Fleet Foxes to anyone looking to have a good time and shake a leg.
