Dave Monks // Live in Philly [photos + live review]

Incase you missed our EP review the other week, Tokyo Police Club frontman, Dave Monks, recently released a solo EP called All Signs Point to Yes.  Complete with a full band, Dave took the stage, playing a collection of all six songs from the EP, along with some new tunes.  There was even a Tokyo Police Club fav, 'Favourite Colour' thrown in the mix at the middle to keep everyone's attention.  Despite the calls from the crowd for 'Bambi' and 'Argentina', this show was highlighting Dave's solo effort, and a promising one that at.  Dave continued to show his gift for being a frontman and performer.  Throwing in stories about songs and little quirky queues to include the crowd.  

Brooklyn indie rockers Fort Lean got things kicked off, bringing the crowd's drunken energy up a level.
