For the People, By the People, Foster the People

Foster the People by Fatima Kelley1

There's a massive show on Thursday night at Mattress Firm with Paramore, Foster the People and Jay Som, and as you might know, those shows tend to start before the sun sets, which means if you do thetmath in reverse, Paramore is probably on around 8:30 or 9, which means Foster The People has their whole night open. So consider this little gift: They're playing a FREE show at Soda Bar -- first come, first served. It's going to be insane -- obviously they're super limited with their capacity -- but if you love FTP and aren't already going to the Amp, this might be an option for you. Elsewhere, Rhye is here "one more time for (your) taste," and Testament will be melting faces at House of Blues for a Nuclear Blast Comic-Con party.
