Friendly Fires puts other bands to shame

Friendly Fires and Theophilus London @ the Commodore

I generally try to avoid physical activity at all costs, but lo and behold, I had sweat in my hair walking out of the Commodore Ballroom on October 18. Theophilus London and Friendly Fires, with their physics-defying acrobatics and lightning-fast sprinting, made every other band in existence look like a bunch of overweight walruses. Friendly Fires’ frontman Ed Macfarlane dove into crowd during, like, the second song.┬áThe only person not losing his shit was a uncharacteristically emotionless Michael Jackson. Strange, because he’s usually pretty good.
