Hmmm, how many Les Savy Fav references can we slip into this preview?
What would wolves do? They’d go see Les Savy Fav at Corporation on the 27th of February of course. No yawn, yawn, yawn at this show, no bringing us down for we will make a lover out of you. The ‘Fav, famed for front man Tim Harrington’s onstage eccentricity, will put on one of the best live shows you’ve ever seen. So brace yourself because, as you get high and unhinged to dance the night away, and as the sweat descends late into Sunday night, you’ll be thinking:
1) Why is this band so awesome?
2) I love Drowned in Sound
3) Can I pull off wearing a leotard and stockings on stage?
Les Savy Fav have the catchiest guitar hooks around and seeing them is less crowd watch band, crowd go home, but more a fully interactive experience unto itself, those who saw them perform at Constellations Festival in Leeds recently will tell you no different. Expect to hear songs from the critically acclaimed new album Root for Ruin as well as old favourites like ‘Patty Lee’.
So reprobates resume because knowing how the world works is how to hold onto your genre, and Les Savy Fav are your genre. (Eleven song references: not bad).
P.S. Wear sensible clothing because it’s going to be a dance-fest.
