The Drums get Reading on it's feet
The NME tent reaches full capacity for Brooklyn band
Alex Fahey - 29 August 2010
"Thank you very much, this is called 'I Felt Stupid'” explained lead singer Jonathan
Pierce, who dressed in a mustard coloured shirt for the occasion, as he glided across the stage for their performance
of the single.
Other songs included 'Don't Be A Jerk Johhny' which Pierce introduced as "a song about a girl I used to love, but now I hate," as the band began the intro and he used his fist to bang the monitor in front of him.
The band however, failed to maintain their early appeal with the rear half of the tent emptying substantially before the set’s climax.
Reading Festival 2010 continues today (29 Aug) with sets from Klaxons, We Are Scientists, British Sea Power and many more.
