ST. JOHNSBURY – The Final Fridays monthly summer block party wraps for the season on August 26, with a free downtown concert on Railroad Street, with Fox Royale, at 7 p.m. Additional Final Friday events begin at 4 p.m., when Railroad Street will be closed to vehicular traffic.
Fox Royale make indie-rock with the same energy as acts like Cold War Kids, Cage the Elephant and Vampire Weekend. Their debut single, “Don’t Call Me When You’re Lonely,” is about loneliness, particularly the kind that affects traveling musicians (or traveling workers of any kind) and their partners. “It’s bright sounding,” says Fox Royale’s Nathan Hurley. “A lot of it sounds happy. It’s not just one line that’s super catchy. We want every line to get stuck in your head.”
