Free Energy stuck on touring

on April 06, 2010, 1:56pm

We’ve heard a lot of mediocre crap this year so far. But what’s the saying? There’s always diamonds in the rough, right? Consider Free Energy one of ’em. Comparisons draw them to Thin Lizzy or even the likes of Pavement, but who gives a shit? They’re a rock ‘n’ roll band with an actual singer. They have stage presence. They want you to like them. There’s nothing pretentious about ’em and maybe that’s what makes it all so inviting. Keyword: carefree.

Well, in support of their debut, the James Murphy-produced Stuck On Nothing, the band will do what any band does these days to make a living: They’ll tour. With dates across the Midwest and snaking up and down the east coast, fans of the bubble gum shoe folk should jump for joy, blow up balloons, and sing “Hallelujah” (but not the Leonard Cohen version). It’s a pretty safe bet that you’ll enjoy Free Energy live as much as you have on record.

It doesn’t hurt that most of these dates are with Jukebox the Ghost, either. SCORE.
