The lights dim to a purpley hue as Cold War Kids launch into 'Robbers' and the backdrop changes to a kinda nighttime cloudscape with stars. Sweet.

Quick swig of beer & it's into New Cassettes' last song 'Our Hearts Don't Beat' - much dancing from the fans...

20.06 from Roundhouse

Big single time from Cold War Kids! Woops abound as the familiar bassline of 'Hang Me Up To Dry' twangs out of Matt's guitar. Head bobbing goes into overload.

The two double basses are locking horns. Basquiat Strings are getting heavy. Eskelin's tenor blasts are threatening to take the paint off the walls.

Reverend and the Makers sink into 'Karma Coma' by Massive Attack.

22:31 from Jazz Café

Amar has totally nailed this gig lark. And the drummer played his part too!
