    from wanda blacksmith:

    the show was one of the best i have ever been to. their keyboardist played one song with the first band. the song was beautiful! when they got off the stage the excitement level went way up. i could not believe i was about to experience a live mogwai show and i think the others felt the same way. they played and people shed tears or if they didnt they were holding them back. stuart made a lot of eye contact and was very bold. lots of smiling between band members. it got very loud toward the end and i think that even those with ear plugs in had their ears covered. i noticed that the guitarist on the left had no ear plugs in. that guy is going down!

    from brian adams:

    wanda covered most everything. wanted to add that stuart and dominic switched instruments on 'helicon 1', not sure why though some snickering was evident between the two... i found it amazing something can be that loud yet that precise and clear, absolutely blew me away, way better than i expected and my expectations were very high. opening with 'you...jesus' was tremendous. my ears rang for 48 hours following, mostly due to the final ten minutes as i sat drooling with no ear protection whatsoever. come back soon guys!
