Foals, Bear Hands, Silversun Pickups: photos and more from the Spring Fling tour!

The entire evening was wonderful: each band different, each band putting on a show as if they were headlining, and that's why this was such a good, entertaining show. Everyone who was in the audience saw their money's worth, and more. More than four hours of excellent performance and really good music. Nice job, all of you, Spring Fling tour bands!!!

Unlike Karli, who wrote this Spring Fling Tour preview, I hadn't seen any of these bands before, and they have all left a musical impression; Bear Hands, post-punk-indie-rock from Brooklyn, NY; almost-shy, hiding in the lights (and a challenge to photograph); Silversun Pickups, alternative-rock, and a very, very active drummer; and Foals, indie-rock from the UK. Oh Foals, I love you--not just because you are from England and another in the latest British Invasion, but because I haven't stopped listening to you since I came home from the show.

Can we do this all again soon, please, Radio 94.7?
