What a difference a venue can make as far as the energy of the crowd goes. Traffic was hell, but the trek to The Observatory was worth it. There was barely room to breathe as sweaty and smiling diehard fans went nuts over Oxford’s Foals. Frontman Yannis Philippakis did his thing by crowd surfing with his guitar and working the stage. You may only be able to get a glimpse of his eyes through all the hair, but the voice singing “My Number” off Holy Fire and long-time favorite “Inhaler” is distinguishable. Get to KROQ’s Almost Acoustic Xmas early tonight to catch them.
