Photo Essay: FOALS Rocks Echostage

U.K. alternative-rock band FOALS stopped by the District Thursday night for a performance at Echostage. After completing the UK and Europe, FOALS is now on tour in the United States to support their latest album, What Went Down, released August 2015.

The band is widely recognized as one of the United Kingdom’s best live acts (in 2013 they won the Q Award for Best Live Act and they’ve been nominated for NME’s Best Live Act twice), and they certainly did not disappoint. FOALS gave a high energy performance, filled with hand-clapping, headbanging and even a little bit of crowd-surfing.
