Young Offenders' Institute - The Fleapit, May

Funny night last at The Fleapit - it was really quiet (probably the result of people escaping the city for the bank holiday weekend), but the dedicated few who were there played on to the end.

I took the early slot on the decks so I could help out on refereeing duties as YOI staffers Will and Jo are on holiday (at the Sasquatch festival, the lucky buggers).

So here's what I played in my all 7" set...

Jamie Lidell - Compass
Foals - Cassius
White Denim - Let's Talk About It
Eli 'Paperboy' Reed - Come And Get It
The Very Best featuring Ezra Koenig - Warm Heart Of Africa
The Drums - Let's Go Surfing
Eels - Mr. E's Beautiful Blues
Frankie & The Heartstrings - Hunger
Ladyhawke - Dusk Till Dawn
Free Energy - Free Energy
The Gaslight Anthem - Great Expectations
Neon Neon - I Lust U (Heartbreak Remix)
The Charlatans - The Only One I Know
Franz Ferdinand - Do You Want To
Kings Of Leon - Sex On Fire
The Maccabees - Love You Better
*Cold War Kids - Hospital Beds
**Simian Mobile Disco - Audacity Of Huge
Noisettes - Don't Give Up
The Grates - 19-20-20
Yeah Yeah Yeahs - Zero
Beck - E-Pro
The Big Pink - Tonight
Dan Le Sac vs Scroobius Pip featuring Pos Plug Won - Thou Shalt Always Kill (De La Edit)

* This was not the song I remembered it to be. So it got canned pretty quickly.

** This track cropped up three times in the evening - I played it, and it got such a good reception off one excited young lady that she asked Dave, our last DJ of the night, if he could play it again during his set. It felt weird asking him to play one of my songs, but it's hard to turn down such an enthusiastic request, and he was very gracious in interrupting his set to fit it in. And the third time was about 2am when we went to The Lexington for their excellent last Friday of the month indie disco thing. Good times.
