The Brownies aren’t used to this sort out crowd. Used to playing to a much older audience, which generally is waving less glow sticks, they give it there best to win over the crowd.
The females members dance about, throwing themselves around the stage as if their lives depended on it, whilst their drummer hits the snare so hard he breaks his snare drum skin within the first two songs.
New single Cougar stand out, and by this stage the audience are moving along as well.
Electronic/Dance can very often be let down by their live shows, sometimes the energy from the recorded version doesn’t seem to be matched by the live performance. Innerpartysystem are difference.
During their short (only 50 minutes), but powerful set, innerpartysystem move around every inch of the stage, with more energy than the average rock band. It’s impressive to see a four piece band pull off this sound, incoporating keyboards, guitars, drums, loops, samples and sampling and layering effects over vocals. Tonight is the last night of the UK tour and singer Patrick Nissley voice is struggling, but for the most part he manages to pull off strong vocals.
Aside from the music, innerpartysystem bring the best lighting rig seen at the Waterfront in years. Light boxes and strobes flash around the stage adding to the atmosphere of the music.
Hit single ‘Don’t Stop’ stands out, with the young crowd singing along to every single word.
