I saw these guys last night. It was a good show, sold out.
They rocked pretty hard. Highlights for me included the first three songs off Gimme Fiction (Beast and Dragon Adored, Two Sides of Monsieur Valentine, I Turn My Camera On.) My Mathematical Mind definitely benefitted from being played live. I was never a big fan of that song until last night. They also played some stuff from Girls Can Tell, like Me and the Bean. The crowd went nuts for Small Stakes and The Way We Get By, but that's no surprise. Mod, you are right, the songs are very danceable. Actually, I read somewhere that Britt Daniels' original intention was to make Gimme Fiction a dance album. Oddly, the crowd was very subdued throughout the evening. Mostly just a lot of headbobbing going on. It's not hard to see how these guys have achieved some success. They have a veritable arsenal of really solid songs.
