Any idea of setlist from last night? Trying to make sure I listen to the right stuff for maximum emotional connection.

bobby burg was just lovely. by far the most posi guy in the room. his grin! the whole band seemed so into it. seriously though, thanks so much for putting this on. i'm glad i came back up for it. i've always been a bit 'meh' about joan of arc but was totally blown away this evening. everything was spot on. and finishing with an owls song?! arrived a bit late so only caught min diesel onwards (who i really enjoyed!). there were two really outstanding tracks - 4th and second last maybe? i can't quite remember. i've never enjoyed hot club de paris and that just made it worse. don't get it. worst banter i've ever heard, too. real head-in-hands material.

Aye, really great gig last night. Gutted that Seas,Starry had their set cut short when Jan's amp packed in as I was really getting into them. Min Diesel were good noisy fun! Hot Club de Paris were really good I thought, and their banter was equal parts quite amusing and quite cringe-worthy. Joan of Arc were just blooming brilliant although after Claire pointed out that Tim Kinsella looked like Professor Lupin I couldn't really look at him the same way. Delighted they finished on that Owls song. Great set.

Yeah, this was the best gig I've been to in a while. Didn't see the Min, and Seas, Starry were cut short but I thoroughly enjoyed Hot club and Joan of Arc. JoA weren't as good as I expected them to be, perhaps, but I still thought they were very good. That doesn't really make sense... I actually enjoyed Hot Club's banter. I thought it was mostly really funny. good on the Dave's, I hope you covered your costs and what not. I didn't actually pay as I was on the door for Min Diesel, so if you're short on money I'll feel really bad...

Despite being a massive winner, I will also lump up the cash if you were super short on the night because I AM REALLY NICE.

Really glad everybody enjoyed themsleves. Only really saw Joan Of Arc who surpassed my expectations by a good stretch. Was really bowled over by the response we (Min DIesel) got too.

Dont really want to go into the ins and outs of it as it was a really good gig, well attended and great fun to be part of. Defintely ambitious for Dave and myself to do ourselves but you live and learn.

really sorry not to make this Its very heartening to see you guys taking the plunge with an ambitious promotional line up. its very refreshing to read the honesty of two posters above about offering to pay afterwards.

give me a bell if you want to co-host something interesting down the line...

Thanks again to everyone who came down, shame my amp decided to have a meltdown mid set, but these things happen. All the other bands were great, a pity that I only caught a couple Min Diesel songs.

Bobby Berg is a lovely man.

Great gig. We were disappointed to have to stop playing prematurely, but watching the other band play more than made up for it. They were all ace. And plus one to the Bobby Burg fan club, what a thoroughly lovely individual.

Aye, it was a rare evening. Great bands and the lads from Hot Club De Paris didn't get bored talking to me about effects pedals nor made fun of my waistcoat. Min Diesel were on ace form.

Hot Club's banter makes me larf, but I can understand why people would hate it - kinda wish they would play more songs over chatting. Nice dudes though in my experience. The newer stuff just doesn't live up to the older stuff to me personally... 'My Little Haunting' is one of my favourite pop tunes. Shipwrecked and sometimesitsbetter... were sad omissions too.

Joan of Arc were cool though, I enjoyed them. The Min were tight - vocals were spot on. Last two songs were personal favourites.

Thanks to everyone who helped put on this show. I enjoyed everybody's set. Min Diesel were really good. Last time I saw them was about a year ago and I thought they were okay but they've improved a lot since then. I was pleasantly surprised. Their drummer is good despite not having hairy arms. Well done, chaps.

It was great to see Victor looking healthy and happy. I didn't think I'd ever get the chance to see him play so it was extra special this time.

Awesome music and awesome facial hair last night. You guys should be stupid excited.

Also, Bobby Burg is maybe the most polite man in the world.

Were you at the Glasgow show then? Was disappointed by the turnout at that one...

Yeah I was pretty surprised with the turnout, fairly unresponsive audience too even for a Sunday night. I had fun though..
