Hi brothers and sisters,

I have 2 tickets to Friday 5th October 2018 at Alexandra Palace and we're unable to attend due to a Dad's 60th party on the same day. I'm look for a straight up swap for 2 tickets to go on Saturday 6th October 2018. Please get in touch if you know anyone that wants to swap tickets.

Thanks in advance :)

1st. Is the Facebook group no more or did I just not get the memo I wasn't part of it anymore or something? Maybe I'm doing something stupid on my phone.

2nd. What's going on, where are we all meeting up?

3rd. What's good with y'all?

Glad I wasn't the only one, according to what Tom posted on IG
https://instagram.com/p/Bojowcilwoh/

though I imagine they're just playing his song to test the sound system instead, but who knows!

Nope

who knows!
Me. Beck is on tour in America so I wasn't expecting him.

Setlist was basically the same as Paris. I probably found it easier to listen to/analyse the new transition thingy before Wide Open on that excellent Paris footage than I could tonight. The beginning of Wide Open itself felt like an aural mess for me. That may have just been the soundsystem though. The bass was fine but some of the mid-range could have been more expansive.

Some additional observations:
Swoon works better live than anywhere else. It seems to prompt easy-going disco dancing from the crowd.
Ally Pally possesses zero heating, so gigs in Winter can be cold. But tonight was so warm you could see steam!
People still go nuts to HBHG in a way that frankly baffles me. On the plus side, they also seemed to really dig Got To Keep On.
Nice touch: placing the disco balls halfway out into the venue, not just over the stage. Beautiful effect.
Ed waves too much.
During EBW7 I wished I was on E. It felt partcularly 'clubby' tonight.
I miss the robots once theyre gone (this incidentally, will be the title of my forthcoming novel.  :) )
People with backpacks and large handbags need to stop dancing in a way that smacks their bags against other people.
Mad As Hell kicks ass (metaphorically, thank goodness).

If like me, you were totally caught out by the way they sold out two nights at this venue, do not despair (London people, if you're reading this). The touts were selling lots of tickets. The start time of course was 9 not 8.45, and if you wait til 9.10 or 9.15 (and uh, miss the first 2 minutes of Free Yourself  ::)) you can talk the touts down to £20 a ticket. Don't worry about the "lead booker/photo ID" stuff, the door staff didn't give a sh*t. If they ask, tell them your "lead booker" has already gone in ahead.
Venue "pro tip": when you walk into the actual gig space, turn right, go down the BACK of the venue and up the far right hand wall. There is always more space over there, and you can get reasonably near the front even if the gig has started.

I imagine they will play London again in the next year or so. I mean they've only actually released two tracks one track since their 2016 BITE gigs (which is why I'm baffled that they sold out to 20,000 for this weekend as opposed to 10,000 for the weekend in 2016). Surely they will play again once the album is out...
Nothing I could have recorded tonight would have been as good as that incredible Paris footage.

I've tried to post a picture of a projection on the outside of the venue (not that exciting TBH) but Tinypic is down at the moment. Can anyone else recommend a free, easy-to-use photo-hosting service? For dummies?
Oh I've just realised there's a better pic on the Chems twitter. But mine has a London bus in it!

yeah, Beck is only tagged in the instagram post because his track 'Golden Age' is in the background.

Thanks for the review Wolkenkrabber.

Yep, they're superb crowd pleasers. I am personally not yet bored of them as much as I was with OOC. I guess HBHG will almost never leave their sets as it's so popular and always triggers people to sing along with the vocal sample.

Nice touch: placing the disco balls halfway out into the venue, not just over the stage. Beautiful effect.
Yeah, isn't that awesome?! It creates such an immersive, dreamy atmosphere in such a simple yet effective fashion, it's just ace.

Ed waves too much.
Haha, true.

I miss the robots once theyre gone (this incidentally, will be the title of my forthcoming novel.  :) )
It's just too short of an experience, isn't it?

People with backpacks and large handbags need to stop dancing in a way that smacks their bags against other people.
Surprised they would even let folks with backpacks in.

If you aren't afraid of using a German service, you can try this one.

Imgur is super easy and quick

It just doesn't give you the direct link automatically - once you upload, right click the image and say "Open image in new tab" in Chrome or "View image" in Firefox until you get a URL / tab that ends in .jpg or .png, or whatever.
Never for money, always for love.
