Foo Fighters Play Surprise Club Gig
May 6, 2014


Foo Fighters
In the midst of working on a new album, Foo Fighters made the trip to Washington, DC on Monday night to play a surprise set at a birthday party for Go-Go legend Big Tony, held at the 9:30 Club. The Foos surprised those at the club by taking the stage around 11:30 p.m. and then playing a two-hour, 17-song set. According to a setlist published by Consequence Of Sound, the Foos banged out hits and fan favorites such as "My Hero," "Learn To Fly," "Rope," "Monkey Wrench," "This Is A Call," and "Everlong." Earlier in the evening, Dave Grohl also appeared onstage with his former bandmate in Scream, Pete Stahl, along with Bad Brains' Darryl Jenifer and Dr. Know. The group performed together under the moniker The Don't Need Its.

Meanwhile, Foo Fighters have been quietly working on a new album. Not many details have been revealed, but producer Butch Vig told the U.K.'s Kerrang magazine that the record is almost halfway finished.

"We've been recording at some different locations, but we're almost halfway done with the recording and it's going well," said Vig. "It sounds different — we've thrown a few things into the mix, in the recording process, that are going to give the record a different sound and a different feel. It's been a challenge, but it's also been exciting."

Foo drummer Taylor Hawkins also recently released a new album with his side project, The Birds of Satan. The band is expected to announce some tour dates soon.
