Camden Barfly – London – 21/08/08

How was it for us?

All the ingredients were there. Hot night. Packed venue. Tickets like gold-dust – they sold out a week in advance. Time Out, Metro and The London Paper apparently lurking in the audience. Support band hungry for it; headline band two days away from playing the main stage at Reading & Leeds Festivals. Everything was primed.

We kept it upbeat, chucking in just one slow number (Run) but otherwise keeping the fire stoked with tunes like Beat Alive, Emily, Banana Republic, She’s The One and a super-charged cover of The Cure’s Lovecats. We ate, drank and were merry and team spirit was most definitely high. The Mystery Jets followed with an accomplished set of their off-kilter indie-pop and everyone left with big smiles on their faces.
