Great Escapin'

And so almost as quickly as it descended on our city, the Great Escape's all gone. Highlights were definitely the sets played by Broken Social Scene, Wild Beasts and These New Puritans. The low point? Discovering that my digital camera no longer wants to function and now refuses to take photographs. These two photos are basically all the proof I have that I even went to any gigs.

Broken Social Scene made the Corn Exchange rumble and rattle with their live renditions of "Fire Eye'd Boy", "World Sick" and "7/4 (Shoreline)". Not even Kevin Drew's hilariously preacher-like evangelism between songs could put a damper on their on-stage energy.

Wild Beasts' encore of "Hooting and Howling" made all the queuing outside the Pavilion Theatre worth it. Also, Hayden Thorpe's falsetto most certainly did not disappoint (he's pictured above).

These New Puritans opened at Audio with "We Want War" and got all the pretty, front row black-hoodie-beneath-black-leather-jacket boys heaving to and fro. Lush.

This is what I want to replace Sony's joke of a Cyber-shot digicam.
