Future of the Left, Roomrunner, and Chron Turbine at Knitting Factory

Post Author:

On Tuesday, November 27th, Cardiff, Wales' Future of the Left headlined the final show of their US tour in support of their third album, The Plot Against Common Sense, at Brooklyn, NY's Knitting Factory. The show marked the band's second performance in Brooklyn in less than a month (their November 2nd show was moved to Europa from (le) Poisson Rouge due to the latter venue's loss of power from Hurricane Sandy). Future of the Left played a total of 19 songs for nearly two hours. Three Mclusky songs were included in their set to the delight of the audience (singer/guitarist Andrew “Falco” Falkous and drummer Jack Egglestone were both in Mclusky and formed Future of the Left after Mclusky disbanded) and Falco disparaged San Diego before launching into their final songs, “Lapsed Catholics” and a cover of “I Trusted You,” before the band dismantled Egglestone's drumkit and pulled audience members on stage. Baltimore's Roomrunner drove 12 hours from Cincinnati to Brooklyn to perform on the bill, which marked the end of their month long tour that also began in Brooklyn on November 1st. New York acts Chron Turbine and The Simpsons opened the show.
