Foxy Shazam is best served loud and live. The Church of Rock and Roll descended on the Fillmore in San Francisco on Tuesday as main support for The Darkness, returning to the stage after a six year hiatus and their first ever appearance in San Francisco. The pairing of these two bands is pure genius and really no coincidence if you factor in Darkness front-man Justin is the producer of the Foxy’s fourth studio album The Church of Rock Roll released on IRS Records in 2012.

The Darkness Foxy Shazam

At a Foxy Shazam show there are two types of people those that know and those about to find out, and with this being my second show it was really my first as part of the “congregation”. Opener “Welcome to the Church of Rock n Roll”, got the party started along with cuts from 2010 Foxy Shazam “Oh Lord” and “Killin’ it”, but it was “I Like it” that brought the house down as 2,000 plus sang the chorus line “That’s the biggest black ass I ever seen and I LIKE IT, I LIKE IT”, and we did, we really did. For three minutes we all liked it, a lot. The entire place was chanting “Foxy, Foxy, Foxy” as they left the stage. Initially I was a little disappointed with the short set list but Foxy did not disappoint and put on an incredible show.

Ring leader and lead singer Eric Sean Nally was brilliant with vocals that are only outmatched by his lyrical wit. With the attitude of Bill “The Butcher” and the swagger of Freddie Mercury, Nally masterfully worked the crowd especially when he ate a fist full of lit cigarettes he solicited from the crowd.

Foxy Shazam Setlist:
Welcome to the Church of Rock ‘n Roll
Killin’ It
Oh Lord
Holy Touch
The Temple
I Like It
The Only Way to My Heart
