anyone know set times for tonight... i don't want to miss hot chip / ladytron / spank rock / ellen allien
Is Jack Penate at 8.45, which I wont be missing. Imagine you'll find out when you arrive, if the raggedy ass organisers sort their game out that is.
Spank Rock were amazing. Jack Penate was amazing. It's all a blur but I remembering being thoroughly pissed off at crap organisation. Poorly sign posted inside the venue, expensive beer and generally a wee let down. Saw that Northern bird and the little gay fella off Project Catwalk though. Not that it makes it any better.
did Gang Gang Dance play?
The sound was rubbish but I thought they were good.
Last night at The Luminaire was something else entirely though.
about the entire indie stage getting cancelled was the sheer stupidity of it. Fair enough if you have to scrap a stage, but why scrap all the indie acts on it? Why not cut 5 DJ's and accomodate some bands? I really enjoyed Spank Rock and Cut Chemist, but the whole thing has been a joke this year. Even little things like having to que to get in (when you bought advance tickets) and people who just turned up who stroll straight in. While it's pissing it down.
Especially since few people were actually dancing to the DJ's, and the live room couldn't cope with the crowd size.
Having said that Hot Chip just about saved the day. They were utterly fantastic, shame the rest of the festival was such a dull and expensive washout really.
You're right, there was. I think that was the dance crowd who managed to make it that little bit sexier though.
