208 S. First - Ann Arbor
The Blind Pig is probably our favorite venue; it's certainly where we've played the most, and we always know what to expect. They've supported us since our very first show, and always treated us well. We also used to live about two blocks away, so we had that going for us, which was nice.

I don't like very much new music; even when someone I trust recommends something to me, I rarely love it. And I don't love this album, but I like it a lot. Fleet Foxes don't mind sounding like major pussies in a very unselfconscious way, which is extremely rare in modern music. Also, I could remember some of the songs the day after I first heard them, which is some kind of miracle these days.

I was a member of the Janet Jackson fan club when I was ten years old, when she was stark raving mad but no one knew it yet. Has anyone actually listened to this album? Miss Janet is crazy like rock stars used to be, which is truly hard to pull off these days.
624 Brush - Detroit (Bricktown/Financial District)
The first time we played here, Stirling (famous local rock god and all-around Coolest Guy Ever) passed us a note halfway during our fog-machine fueled set. It said, "NO SMOKE PLEASE. IT SETS OFF FIRE ALARM". But that's Detroit Rock 'N' Roll for you.
22765 Gratiot - Eastpointe
This is our favorite restaurant, believe it or not, but you have to go to a specific location - it's the Pittsfield Township Big Boy (3030 Lohr Cir, Ann Arbor, MI 48108). We've been going there since we first started recording "Clouded Staircase". It's family-owned. They treat us like kings. They call us their "best friends".
