Captured: Foals

Foals front-man Yannis Philappakis performing during his band’s show at the Wiltern on Nov. 29.


Hard to believe there’s only one day left in Red Bull Sound Select’s 30 Days in L.A., but in it’s penultimate show at the Wiltern on Nov. 29, Foals was the band to make it seem like the final one.

In the first show of its American tour,

The English indie rock band was flashy, grimy, fun and ecstatic, promoting mosh pits and crowd surfing in a venue that has erected signs across the foyer prohibiting persons to do so.

But that’s who they are. Foals, especially front-man Yannis Philippakis, exuded the essential rock-star feel; something that caught on into the crowd. Philippakis even started the crowd surf when he jumped into the sea of concert-goers in only the band’s third song of the set. In the last song of the set, he hopped off the stage, walked down the right side of the aisle only to end up in the balcony level still strumming his guitar with lucky fans around him. Before the audience knew it, he was gone, only to show back up in the concourse level and hopping back into the crowd’s hands and surf all the way to the stage.

Novosti and Son Little performed prior to the headliner, and both set a mood that worked well going into Foals’ performance. Novosti created an atmospheric tone throughout and reflected the headliner’s sound in a more relaxing setting, while Son Little threw a curve ball with their bluesy and soulful vibe.
