Hot Chip

Despite Mr W suffering from a horrible lurgy we went ahead to the cosy confines of the Dome last night to see the rather fabulous Hot Chip in action (and share his germs with the wider population).

It was an awesome live show: I did see them at Bestival in the summer but frankly, standing in the rain for 5 hours before they came on put a bit of a (literal) dampener on the proceedings.

Collaboration is such a huge aspect of what they do, and it really comes out on stage - they buzz off each other massively. It also really struck me how unusual it is to hear blokes harmonise on pop music tracks.

I think the fact that they don’t have your average singerplusbackingband set up gave the opportunity for the lighting team to do a rather special lightshow, which totally made the evening and had Mr W reaching for his metaphorical (though still rather dusty) glow sticks.

Woo!

Support was ably provided by the bizarre but strangely endearing Max Tundra, if you haven’t heard (or more importantly seen) him, he’s on YouTube (of course!) - this is him supporting Hot Chip in Birmingham.
