The band seemed to not be as into it at the beginning of the show, but they really picked up the slack towards the end. The Electric Co. by far is the best performance here, and the last six songs or so were quite enjoyable to listen to.


The audio quality starts off pretty rough with static and the ususal muffling problems, but towards the end of the show it actually gets much better. It's by no means perfect, but the last five songs or so (with the exception of the second 11 O'Clock Tick Tock which gets cut off) were a lot better than I was expecting.
Recording: "Unknown Analogue Generation" - 3.5 stars


The audience could definitely have been way more into it, you can actually here them chattering during Into the Heart. They do clap after most of the songs and cheer for more after Boy-Girl, but they aren't really too enthused at the start of the show.


The best highlight by far is The Electric Co., followed up by Stories For Boys and Things To Make And Do. The band and the crowd were just average for the first seven songs, but the band especially really got into the show torwards the end. If you're going to listen, start at Twilight or The Electric Co.
