Q: So are you saying there are actually guys named Peter Bjorn and John, but not Franz Ferdinand?
A: Yep, one's an actual trio from Sweden and the other is a name of a band from Scotland.
On consecutive Thursdays (April 23 & April 30) I went to concerts by groups that are past winners of my "Song of the Year" informal award.
2004's Song of the Year: "Take Me Out" by Franz Ferdinand
2007's Song of the Year: "Young Folks" by Peter Bjorn and John
When I heard that Peter Bjorn and John were going to play at Metro for just $20 I was beyond ecstatic. In an effort to make sure I would not have to go to this show alone, I offered to go to their show the previous night in Milwaukee to make it easier for a friend who was on the fence. Thankfully I found a friend to see the Chicago performance.
Walking in, I had already decided I would be buying a concert shirt.
