That’s right, a little more than 24 hours to go until Foster The People take stage, please brains and make fans at The Viper Room on Wednesday February 24, 2010. It’s never too early to start getting hyped, especially when so many other people are doing the same and buzzing about the band as evidenced by their popularity on

Foster The People‘s “Pumped Up Kicks” is currently sitting in the Top 10 most popular on, propelled by its recent appearance in NYLON TV‘s coverage of Anna Sui during fashion week. All Mark Foster and his people needed was a vehicle for their music to be absorbed, and like lightning the 20 something artist from the suburbs of Cleveland and his band of People are making a serious buzz. You can check out the cool video from Nylon TV here or see it on YouTube here.

Not only are they turning eyes on NYLON TV and ears on, but they expect to turn some heads at their show at The Viper Room. It just so happens to be Mark Foster’s birthday celebration (the guy was actually born on leap year day) so you can only imagine what might transpire. If it is anything like their performance at the Stand Up benefit, you can expect some impressive vocals from Mark and some inspiring and creative improvisation from the entire band.

To top that off – the band just announced that they will be performing 2 shows in Austin, TX during SXSW – once on March 17th at a Music & Tech Mashup Event at Rusty Spurs along with other rising acts from Los Angeles like Saint Motel and Odd Modern, and on March 19th at the Rooftop Riot! at The Blind Pig on 6th Street where they will be sharing the stage with Andrew W.K. himself as well as other buzz bands including Glint and Little Girls.

Help the band continue building their buzz by giving them a heart on hypem here.
