Frightened Rabbit @ Webster Hall 4/28/10

Last night some friends and I went down to Webster Hall to see Frightened Rabbit. It's been just over a year since I saw them (last time at the much smaller Le Poisson Rouge). The Webster show was packed and the crowd was real enthusiastic. The band played a good mix of songs from their new album and some old favorites.

I took a couple pics and some video clips that you can check out below......
