Like peanut butter and jelly. Like thunder and lightning. When you put two greats together, you get something even more amazing. Musical gems in their own rights, Franz Ferdinand and Sparks joined forces at The Wiltern on Tuesday night after a move from The Hollywood Palladium. Their new collaboration and self-titled debut album, FFS, perfectly embodies each band’s sound, while being something completely unique in its own right. And that goes for their performance as well. They were one and the fans were right there with them. The group ended on a tongue-in-cheek song “Collaborations Don’t Work”.

On tour with FFS, local band The Intelligence started things off with a slow jam (featuring a cameo by Franz Ferdinand’s Paul Thomson) and surprising the crowd by transitioning into a much faster pace on the second song.
