It’s always hard to take photos at DJ sets – dark blurry snaps of people staring at laptops aren’t the most visually stimulating. I could pretend that is why I have no accompanying photos for this post. I could pretend that I felt it wouldn’t add any content to the blog so I didn’t bother. The real reason – I was so busy dancing like an absolute idiot that I totally forgot to take pictures.
For a taster of how brilliant Le Galaxie DJs are live, give this a listen – https://soundcloud.com/le-galaxie/prom-night-mix. While brilliant, what it doesn’t give is a taste of is the fun end to the DJ set – an 80s-tastic mix of Whitney Houston, Michael Jackson, Bonnie Tyler and Beastie Boys. Going home in a smiling, sweaty heap at 4 in the morning- the sign of an amazing night.
Emerging from a First Fortnight haze for The Erics took a bit of doing, but was well worth it. Getting to see openers State Lights again, who I had seen at the First Fortnight Big Gig, was a real treat – they are an impressive act who I’d expect to be seeing higher up the bill before the year is out. Further up the bill were Daithi, who is always brilliant, and headliners The Riptide Movement, impressive as always. The night was rounded out by Le Galaxie doing a DJ set, who unfortunately were on a little late for a school night and played to a largely empty venue. An eclectic mix of acts but a fun night!
