It seems that Foster The People is playing the Mann Center in June. I think I need to see the concert. Who's going with me?
If you checked out my "2011 in music" post you know that their album "Torches" was one of just four 2011 albums I own. And I wasn't planning on buying it, even though I had heard and liked "Pumped Up Kicks." Then one of the TMZ people I follow on Twitter posted a link to the song "Houdini" on his Tumblr page. (By the way, does anyone think I really need a Tumblr page of my own?) Once I heard it, I knew I was buying the album. And although it's really, really, really early in the year, every track is at the top of my most-played in Tunes since I reset the count.
"Houdini" is currently, and surprisingly, at number two. Here's their performance from the "Live on Letterman" concert:
If you prefer, their "Saturday Night Live" rendition...with special guest Kenny G????
But which song is at number one? That would be "Call It What You Want." Here's the music video:
