I Saw a Frightened Rabbit on the Danforth

OK, this was two weeks back, but I’ve been busy.

I first saw Frightened Rabbit at the Mod Club in October 2012. Then at the Phoenix six months later. And a third time in October 2013 at the Kool Haus. now, I love this band, but by that third show, it felt like a bit too much. Four years later, and it felt fresh to see FR again.

Like the other shows with Frightened Rabbit, it was sold out, and it didn’t take long to realize why: Frightened Rabbit are a fantastic live act. Maybe you’ve seem other bands like this; that create an immediate sense of intimacy, a rapport with the audience. Scott Hutchinson spent a fair bit of time at the beginning of the set being critical of border crossing officers (and anyone who has had to cross boarders surely had sympathy with the band). /and we responded in kind; so quickly we were caught up in that moment, singing along with the songs we knew, and grooving to the ones we didn’t.

A sweaty, glorious eighty minutes of rock and roll.
