American singer, songwriter Albert Hammond Jnr brings his solo show to the intimate SWG3 venue in Glasgow, showcasing tracks from his new record Francis Trouble. Former member of The Strokes is now up front on his own, and loving his new job as the main man.
Sporting a gold shiny suit as he hits the stage, the band blast thru a 20 song set list, opening with DvsL, Rude Customer and Set to Attack. Hammond inst one for standing at the mic, he’s all over the stage and half way thru the second number he’s off the stage and into the pit to greet the crowd hanging over the barriers. In this small venue that’s only a hop and a jump for Hammond tho.
Caught By My shadow, Side Boob, St Justice, Far Away Truths, the big songs kept coming and all songs well received by the packed audience, with the energetic Hammond now doing chin ups with a pipe hanging from the ceiling venue one minute, and lying sprawled across the stage the next. The silver suit is half gone now and Hammond is down to a T Shirt, as he continues thru the evenings set list.
