    Well last night was pretty damn great!

    Not Squares and Neosupervital were both amazing. Not Squares --- what was the new song you played? You probably played a few but you introduced one with 'this is a new song' so if you remember that one, what was it?!! Absolutely loved it! Neosupervital was so good. Perfect end to the night.

    Also saw A Plastic Rose for the first time (first song was great, the rest was all really well done but just not for me). And apart from that I also saw The Brothers Movement, Sergeant Megaphone and Heritage Centre. All in all a good night!

    And tonight representing the nordies we have Cutaways, Escape Act and Yes Cadets, yes?
    (I'm aware that I will probably be talking to myself here but hey!)
