Countdown to Bonnaroo: 11 Days – Artist of the Day: Foster The People

26 May

In the last 18 months, Foster The People have gone from underground indie rockers to mainstream champions.  Check out one of the first posts I wrote about them from early 2011 when they were first performing in Vegas and an interview with Mark Pontius just before their show last summer also in Vegas.  I’ve seen these guys on the tiniest of stages and in front of over 20,000 screaming fans, poolside and in a nightclub and every time, they don’t disappoint.  Before their debut album, Torches, was released, the guys were selling out shows with just a three-song EP!  If that wasn’t a cue to take notice, the absolute firestorm of “Pumped Up Kicks” sure was and now they are the music industry’s darlings.  Two years ago being unknown to now set to play the Which Stage at the biggest music festival in the country, a tip of the hat gentlemen.
