On June 15, while most of us here at Spin HQ were down at Bonnaroo, a band of faux-brothers known as the Fratellis cruised into West Hollywood's Key Club to open the second season of the Ruby concert series, a music showcase presented by Spin in partnership with adidas Originals and Citi Private Pass.
Amidst a wild, sold-out crowd, the Glaswegian trio banged through tracks off their debut full-length, Costello Music, as well as chipper tunes off their sophomore album, Here We Stand, enticing a thrilled dance pit at their feet. To read Gregg LaGambina's full review, click here.
Before the Fratellis struck the set's first note, however, aspiring journalist Brianna Conway sat down with Jon and Barry Fratelli backstage, having won a correspondent search organized by Spin and adidas Originals. Watch a video interview of Conway questioning the band about their new album, future plans, and penchant for fibbing to the media, and be sure to check back to SPIN.com for more from Conway over the summer, as she reports from music events nationwide.
