Foals launched Club NME in San Francisco last night (May 22) at the Popscene venue with a raucous live set.

The band were met with a rapturous reception from the crowd, who began dancing manically to 'Cassius' in particular.

Foals played extended jam versions of songs such as 'The French Open' and other tracks from their debut album, 'Antidotes'.

Frontman Yannis Philippakis warmed to the crowd, praising them for their spirited response to the show. "Their applause has nothing on you guys," he said, comparing the audience to a typical New York crowd.

Club NME returns to the venue on June 19 with a set from These New Puritans.

Foals played:

'The French Open'
'Olympic Airways'
'Heavy Water'
'Two Steps, Twice'
'Red Socks Pugie'
'Electric Bloom'
