PICTURE THIS: CITIZENS! @ Rickshaw Stop, SF 10/12/12
The flamboyant, friendly, and poptastic British rock band CITIZENS! played Friday night at Rickshaw Stop in San Francisco as a part of the OOHLALA! TOUR featuring three new wave-inspired French bands: Housse de Racket, Tomorrow’s World, and Lescop. If you like Air, Spoon, Franz Ferdinand, and/or synth-heavy ’80s new wave, you would have loved this show.
CITIZENS! writes and performs exciting electronic dance music. This hormone-charged English electro-rock quintet, rocked. the. fuck. out. and performed to the max during their first show in SF. Lead singer Tom Burke is a charming, charismatic, and gracious performer whose vivid appearance and fearless confidence on stage grabs the attention of the audience for a truly inspired performance. These boys look good, rock hard, and love to make music that gets your hips shaking.
CITIZENS!’s new album Here We Are (Kitsune/Cooperative Music) produced by Franz Ferdinand’s Alex Kapranos was released this week. Check out a little sample of it here:
