Irving Plaza hosted Built To Spill last night, in what was undoubtably a nostalgic night for most of the attendees, and for some, a night of discovery. BoS has inspired countless derivatives, probably including well-matched opener Fauxbois, who played a great set and probably gained a respectable amount of new fans.

Despite being fifteen years younger, the bubbly opening crew played a short set to a pleasant crowd. The chilly Midwestern disposition (Fauxbois hail from Idaho) certainly crept out in bits and pieces, adding an emotive quality to an already engaging bit of music. With a slightly higher, untrained voice lead singer Brian Mayer took the band to a spacey, melodic, and sometimes noisy sound in most of their songs. The place where most BoS fans tend to dwell, so the room was definitely into it.

Catch Fauxbois on one of their later dates with BoS. -joe puglisi
