    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.
