I hadn't seen The Futureheads since that Rothko show in September '04 but they were pretty much as I'd remembered: shit-hot and tight as hell. And funny too, especially guitarist Ross Millard who was also prone to guitar heroics. The band, who hadn't played an American show in nearly two years, blazed through 15 songs in a little less than an hour with newish single "Beginning of the Twist" being the set's highlight — along with some orchestrated audience participation for their still-amazing cover of Kate Bush's "Hounds of Love."
