Come Sunday, get your fill of Foster the People with a plethora of events in Dallas. The Los Angeles band has been sweeping the nation with their catchy tunes, more-than-what-meets-the-eye lyrics, and boyish good looks. Mark Foster is the leading man, while band mates Cubbie Fink and Mark Ponitus round out the harmonious sounds in their coming soon debut album, Torches. Here’s the low down on what’s in store this weekend…
Starting off at Good Records at 6:30pm – get close and personal with the band as they do a live set in-store. Get there early, so you can score a sweet spot for prime swooning as Mark Foster et al sing a few of their hits. Be sure to peruse the latest records before the performance as Good Records is a haven of ear candy . This one is dedicated for all you cash strapped kiddos, it’s FREE-ninety-nine.
Good Records is located at 1808 Greenville Ave., Dallas, TX 75206.
Immediately following, hustle on over to The Loft for their sold-out show at 7:30pm. The band is on a nation-wide tour after garnering a huge following after Coachella, which has been selling out night after night, city after city. Seriously, catch these boys while you can if they come into a town near you. Tickets were $10, but go befriend a sketchy scalper if you want entry to this standout show.
The Loft is located at 1135 S Lamar St, Dallas, TX 75215.
Cool off at the Joule Poule as the Midnight Summer Session kicks off with Foster the People doing a DJ set. While I have no idea of their mix master skills, with enough cocktails and libations and the simple fact that the people watching alone will be worth the entry fee. Apparently the $40 tickets has sold out, but word on the street is that there may still be some $500 cabanas left. Grab your gaggle of band groupies, throw down some cash, take a dip in the pool overlooking Downtown and lay out underneath the starry sky.
The Joule Hotel is located at 1530 Main Street, Dallas, TX 75201. RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 214.748.1300.
For all the skeptics still not convinced, watch their claim to fame below or take a listen to their acoustic XM set of their famed “Pumped Up Kicks”. See you Sunday, my fellow Lushies!
