    from sebastien:

    a really nice concert this evening in a lovely place. wall of sound on 'stop coming to my house'; i didn't remember this song was so powerful live! 'travel is dangerous' was aborted as barry didn't want to sing?!

    they seemed to have a good time, smiling and laughing the entire set. highlights for me were 'stop coming to my house', 'small children in the background' and 'two rights'

    from francois:

    they stopped 'travel is dangerous' after less than one minute. apparently barry had some trouble with some of his gear.

    amazing gig at a relatively small and relaxed festival. best gig of the year for me so far.

    from wouter:

    this must've been the 10th time i saw mogwai playing live. despite the lovely location & good atmosphere the festival in bruges (always) offers, this sure wasn't their best performance. technical difficulties that didn't get solved and some lack of focus i'd say explain why.

    'travel is dangerous' was aborted after a minute 'cos of the technical difficulties that didn't get solved throughout the gig. barry was so pissed off he ran away! during the first half of the show the mix was so out of balance the audience only heard an airplane like heavy buzz from time to time.

    i enjoyed the show anyway as the best band in the world doesn't play that often in yer backyard. oh yeah, this was the first time since 1997 i went to a mogwai show that didn't have satan on the playlist.

    from yannick:

    'kids will be skeletons' was skipped / not played. 'travel is dangerous' was cut short after barry only sang half the first line and asked the others to stop playing that one. and the beginning of the next song ('stop coming to my house') was really similar to 'helicon 1', so i thought the setlist would be completely changed, but that was not the case.
