Anyone know what time they're on?
are you going? i'm EXCITED.
What time you getting there? Am going straight from work
headlines tend to be on later than average, from my experience
the new songs sounded gorgeous live.
i hadn't heard the new album prior to seeing it
I thought the support band, Kontakte, were great. The first song really was quite 'awesome'. Huge swathes of noise with a thumping backbeat. Ones to look out for.
M83 were fantastic. I remember seeing a review of Before the dawn heals us that it was like electronica with the energy of a rock band, and it really was like that. The new songs did sound especially great.
when they were earbleedingly loud it was incredible, but i found it hard to engage otherwise. i was really tired yesterday though, and i was surrounded by absolute fucknuts which didn't help. one them kept shouting "WOOO!" at every buildup, and at one point they were discussing - via the medium of TALKING LOUDLY OVER A SONG - how rude it is to shout out requests at a band. GOOD ONE GUYS.
i enjoyed it. the new songs sounded good, although i swear that she mimed the vocals to two of them (We Own The Sky and Highway of Endless Dreams), but sang live for the rest. could be wrong though - maybe it was just shitloads of effects on her vocals.
Couleurs worked really well as their final song.
I was totally stood next to you at the back for a while when I went to get some water. Should have said hello.
yeah, we were propping up the bar in the far corner. did you have a green t-shirt on?
kontakte's sound where we were stood was really muddy... aparently it was better in the middle of the venue though.
i'm about 7ft tall
Next time next time
were stuck next to a group of twats who, it seemed, were celebrating one of their party having just found out he was to become a dad. Because they repeated this a million times. While the band were playing. And kept clinking their bottles together in a "Cheers!" type scenario. Seriously, just go to the pub.
Oh and I thought Kontakte were dire but there we are.
though stupidly I decided to stand by the wall near the entrance as I can get panic attacks in super busy places and ended up being squashed into the wall.
Thankfully no panic attacks followed.
I forgot how expensive Cargo was for booze :(
Kontakte were a bit generic and dull, but had their moments.
M83 were great though. Nice versions of the new songs, graveyard Girl especially.
