Decked out in all black, The Futureheads took to the stage at the Henry Ford for the final show of their American tour last night. They've been in the Los Angeles area a lot during the past year, doing an Amoeba In-Store, a Troubador show, Coachella and a previous engagement at this same venue. What we love about the post-punk rockers from Sunderland, England is how much fun they have while performing together. They smile and laugh at each other. They joke with the audience. They told the surprisingly young (well, surprising to us, anyway) crowd to "shhhhh" several times during the show. They wryly asked for respect. Then they showed us their "oh" faces.
