FFS at the Wiltern

FFS, the joint project of Franz Ferdinand + Sparks, is one of the most natural collaborations possible within music today—and the impetus was a broken tooth—but they can admittedly be an acquired taste to those unfamiliar with their respective careers. Their live show, though, turned out to be one of the most entertaining tours of the year, thanks to the theatrical stage presence of Alex Kapranos (Franz Ferdinand) and Russell Mael (Sparks) while delivering FFS’ intelligent, tongue-in-cheek lyrics. Here’s to hoping this collaboration wasn’t a one-off.
