Saturday night I caught The Killers in concert with Louis XIV and Conner at Soaring Eagle Casino. Good stuff. Good, good stuff, indeed. The Killers’ setlist was basically the entire debut album plus a couple others. They opened with “Jenny was a Friend of Mine” which was an effectivly raucous opening salvo and busted out “Somebody Told Me” a couple songs later during which the audience nearly drowned out Brandon Flowers’ vocals. Beautiful. Same noise level for “Mr Brightside” as well at the end of the night. “Under the Gun”, “Indie Rock and Roll”, and a song presumably off the upcoming 2nd album were the only songs played that weren’t from Hot Fuss.
