Tweet: Flip. Me.

What happened: This was the mother of all homecomings. From start to finish ASIWYFA delivered an explosive and flawless set featuring material from both the Letters EP and the eponymous debut album, which the crowd lapped up. The fairly small G Sessions tent was sweaty, drunken and packed out as crowdsurfer after crowdsurfer reveled in tracks such as "S is for Salamander" and "K is For Killing Spree", while the mosh pit extended to the halfway point of the tent. An untitled track was debuted with apologies from the band: none were needed, and if it is an example of the sound ASIWYFA are searching for on their impending follow up album, we are in for a real treat. Perhaps the band didn't do themselves justice in their headline slot last year but this performance arguably matched their now legendary Mandela Hall album launch.

On Top of The Mountain: "Set Guitars to Kill" resulted in both the band and the crowd stepping it up another notch to glorious effect.

Slip, Sliding Down The Slopes: The lack of tracks (only two, by my count) from the debut album was a little disappointing.
