The Late, The Pier & The 'Ugly'

Late of the Pier - Kentish Town Forum 17/02/09Image by joedawson via Flickr

Late of the Pier are an English four-piece band from Castle Donington and this evening they were the live performance at Kentish Town Forum. I arrived early and managed to get into a good position to watch the support act Micachu who had a unique sound. The atmosphere was great and you could feel the anticipation from the crowd.

The night didn't really get started until Late of the Pier took to the stage and when they did the band
played practically their whole album. They opened with Space And The Woods which really set the tempo for the evening. From the moment the beat dropped the crowd came alive and from then on everyone was jumping. The crowd surged to tracks from the album with favourites like Focker and Bathroom Gurgle being the highlight of the night although it was always going to be that way! Apparently it's rare for them to play an encore and it seems that it will remain that way if the final song was anything to go by as wasn't sure what was going on. Other than that a great night and one that I will remember for many reasons!!
