The Frames

I haven’t read any reviews of Lollapalooza 2006 yet but I’m sure The Frames slayed everybody they played in front of the same way they slayed me multiple times at SXSW 2005.

The Irish band has a new CD coming out overseas on September 22 with an expected release date in the U.S. of February (I believe I’ll be ordering an import copy because I’m too impatient).

In the meantime, enjoy The Frames performing “God Bless Mom” at Lollapalooza with special guest Beatle Bob providing some dancing entertainment.

  • The Frames were one of the unexpected highlights mentioned in my Chicagoist recap of the show. I couldn’t write about it here since Chicagoist got my press credentials for me though…also, what’s up with both the dude from The Frames AND Brendan Benson stealing my hairstyle circa last January?!

  • i absolutely fell in love with them during their performance. i loved them before, but i wouldn’t have considered myself a dedicated fan.

    but their performance at lolla totally won me over. they were so humble and they were terrific live performers. i didn’t see a single person there not enjoying themselves.

    what’s their new album? i haven’t heard of it yet, but am SO excited to get it. i might get an imported copy too! :-)
