Last night…

21 Apr

We went to see the PopJustice ‘Wonky’ tour featuring Leon Jean Marie, FrankMusik and Alphabeat. It was great. I particularly enjoyed the audience participation which only lasted for a second in LJM’s set but they were really enjoyable, reggae-electro anyone?
Alphabeat were also brilliant – really cheesy and lead singer Anders seemed to be slightly… intoxicated? Up most treat of the night was when all three acts came on to perform Digital Love which I linked to a few weeks ago. I’m still just not sure about FrankMusik, especially as he wasn’t wearing his trade mark white glasses. Let down.

Hot Chip were on the radio last week. Not in the UK but in the USA. Oh the magic of the Internet.
You can listen to them live: here.
