Foster the People live @ The Fillmore SF

Foster the People and The Kooks have teamed up for a 2012 tour which will undoubtedly be too good to handle. We were plum tuckered after FtP’s joyous affair at The Fillmore in October, and we can only assume The Kooks’ raucous set will kick this tour pairing into overdrive.
