The Frames live experience can be many things, depending on where you are in your head, where the band is on their tour, or where the crowd is in their pints. The band and the audience create a sound and energy together and it seems like anything can happen; from the ridiculous to the sublime. If you have a memorable Frames concert tale to tell, please email us at info [at] orderinthesound [dot] com. We’re also looking for stories about how and when fans discovered the band. Whether you’ve already posted it to a blog or are writing your story for the first time, we want to include it here. Oldest at the top. (photo by Cfortakes)
