Thus it was that wristband wearers were shoehorned onto a bus bound for the northern climes of Kentish Town and lo! they did see Enter Shikari.
Who seemed like nice quiet boys in the car on the way to the venue. Manager Keith (the lead singer's father, I was told en route) was in boisterous mood, clearly looking forward to the gig which began just after 3pm in the blacked-out Bull & Gate, next to the much larger Forum.
Mr Lead Singer said: "Remember, this is not the Babyshambles. All the other bands are shit indie bands. This is the only time you're going to have fun." And so they did, Mr Lead Singer resembling the Honey Monster with his metaller howls and blond hair. They claimed not to have rehearsed, but the moshpit at the front didn't seem to mind. Enter Shikari had just provided the most energetic hour of the day so far and, unpracticed or not, they gave good value to their MySpaz backers.
And so to the evening's entertainment, when I mutate to become two (or maybe three) reviewers and we produce a joint epic of the evening's festivities when we're sober enough to try. Amongst the acts on tonight are Sam Sparro, Thecocknbullkid, Crystal Castles, The Wombats, Post War Years, Hatcham Social, Lykke Li, Ipso Facto and Youthmovies. It's going to be busy...
Until tomorrow then.
