Last night, September 16, the Wiltern was bursting with excitement for The Fratellis and The Airborne Toxic Event, which became shriekingly clear once the Fratellis hit the stage with an explosive set. The Fratellis' recent release, Here We Stand, has seen tracks included in a few hit TV shows of late (namely Gossip Girl).
L.A.'s The Airborne Toxic Event returned home after a few weeks of touring for their first appearance at the Wiltern with a rousing set that further confirmed this hometown favorite has the goods. Airborne was kind enough to invite the L.A Weekly to their sound check and backstage for some exclusive photo-opps. Check 'em out here.
