The dynamic rock vibes of Oxford, England’s Foals at Apogee Studios

The English indie rockers Foals came to town & we partied with them! See the evidence here!

English rockers Foals made their way to LA this week and performed a special live performance at the Apogee Studios for the KCRW audience, and we couldn’t have been happier!  Battling jetlag, the quintet rallied and really brought a surprising energy to the intimate space, impressing even the most hardcore Foals fans.  The always-dapper Jason Bentley spoke with the band in between their two sets. Here’s a visual taste of some of what attendees were in for:
