Friday Night Boys @ Cobalt Café

Written By: Jim Markunas

The Friday Night Boys brought the house down at the Cobalt Café! Unfortunately, like an idiot, I left my camera sitting on the couch at my apartment. It’s a shame, as FNB is one of the most energetic live bands I’ve seen in the past month. In my opinion, a band with a stage presence that big should have been at the Gibson or the Wiltern instead of the under-sized Cobalt Café. Friday Night Boys stole the show from headliners Hey Monday; after FNB played, I just couldn’t get into Hey Monday’s set. (Sorry, guys!)

Off The Deep End has been in heavy rotation in my iTunes for a few months now. I especially like FNB’s ‘feel-good’ emo/rock sound. At first glance, there’s nothing special or new about Friday Night Boys, they look and sound like an emo band, but… If you really listed to Off The deep End, it becomes obvious that FNB is a higher caliber act than most emo/pop punk bands. Blending punk, emo, electronica, and indie and a beautifully seemless manner, the Friday Night Boys have a chance at longevity. If they can continue to write great songs and play their asses off (as they did on Monday), they’ll be a household name in no time flat.

If you have a chance, check them out on tour –
