Liverpool is often remembered as the city of the Beatles, the Albert Docks, football and the nightlife but also it's avant-garde music scene which I think is definitely up there with the best in the UK. On my birthday last Thursday, with nothing else planned in particular till the following night, I decided to go along to a gig at The Kazimier...
I'm normally the type that will only go to concerts and gigs of bands I know, but lately have been finding a lot more pleasure in going to see bands I've actually never heard of before. I'm not sure what it is, but I think it may be not having any expectations or knowledge of the band that makes it a lot more exciting. It's definitely a surprise when the band is totally not what you imagined. Foxygen were exactly that. The Californian psychedelic pop and garage rock band consist of Sam France on vocals, Jonathan Rado on guitar and keyboard, Shaun Fleming on drums alongside their 3 fronting singers (like backing singers but they were at the front of the stage...) donning short sparkly dresses and 3 other guitar/bass players... it was a pretty busy stage to say the least.

Foxygen definitely gave me a birthday to remember and an experience i'll never forget. Have you listened to Foxygen lately?
Lots of love, Lucie Rose x
