What a gig!

The Boy Least Likely To, last night at the Water Rats in Kings Cross. I DJ-ed, there were bubbles and streamers, glitterballs and plenty of enthusiastic whooping and "radio ga-ga"-esque outbreaks of synchronised clapping. At one point I realised that the band perfectly encapsulate what Haircut 100 would sound like if they'd been asked to do the soundtrack to "Deliverance"....
The most wonderful thing to see though, is how much they've grown in confidence...There's a spring in their step-a realisation now that they're bloody good at doing what they do, that just oozes out of all of them when they're on stage. I was chuffed to bits.
DJ-ing was a blast as well, Jof came running over to enthuse about Strawberry Switchblade when I played "Since Yesterday" and there was a definite cheer when I played "King of Carrot Flowers Pt. 1" by Neutral Milk Hotel-that doesn't happen everyday does it? Always nice to spin for a savvy crowd......
