Franz Ferdinand Breaks the Silence 

Wednesday, Dec 10 2008

Live 105's annual holiday bash, Not So Silent Night, is always crammed with radio staples, but this year it provides a real treat with one of 2009's biggest sneak peeks.

The teaser single, "Lucid Dreams," is lackluster compared to the group's more dazzling dancefloor struts, but I'm still among the fans curious to hear more.

Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
