    From Dominic:

    Just want to say a quick thank you to everyone who came to the Roundhouse show. We had a great night. Those LED screens were absolutely mega.

    From Ben:

    This was a great gig and very loud too! Whether that drowned out the chatterers I don't know, but it was a quiet gig in that respect. There were even *girls* *dancing* in the crowd, not something I've ever seen at a Mogwai gig. was one girl dancing to Mexican GP! Lots of fingers in ears for MFS and Glasgow M/S which is a good sign in my book - that it was nice and loud and some new folks didn't know what to expect!

    I noticed a few people wandering out well before the end, so I hope they were rushing off to buy the band's back catalogue on iTunes. Definitely a venue they should play again in the future.

    I got in too late to catch all of Errors, but the part I heard they were also excellent.

    I managed to get a set list from the lighting tech. It seems to be very detailed: there's an asterisk next to the songs from the last album with a small publishing footnote in the bottom left corner. Never seen that level of detail before. These tracks also seemed to be circled by hand - not sure why.
    I might have to watch the itunes stream to see if it sounds as loud as it was on the floor!

    From megatron:

    Great night yep. I have been to the Roundhouse a fair few times before and it was nice to have some space in there really. Its normally completely crammed. It was loud and it was a young crowd - Ben you were right about the girls dancing - quite a few of them all the way through actually. I turned up by myself and gave my +1 to a guy that probably wasn't born the first time I saw them at the Duchess of York all those years ago.... I feel old.

    I love Fear Satan live. The stuff off the last two LPs sounded great as well.
