Last night’s show and set list

The show at the Tranzac last night was a good one, although it didn’t go as smoothly as it could have. It was great to finally see Radius and Helena live, and there were also great sets by Circus School, Ginger and Irene and THOMAS, plus a fine installation by Jesse Laderoute.

Unfortunately, two of the acts I was really looking forward to seeing, Gravity Wave and I am Robot and Proud, didn’t get to perform because of scheduling conflicts. There were seven live acts on the bill, and the show was only three and a half hours long because of a midnight deadline, so it quickly became clear that it wasn’t going to happen. But if nothing else, the acts who got to perform did a fine job.

On a bill like that, you’d figure the DJ wouldn’t get much time at all. But as you can see from the set lists below, it turned out to be a busy night.
