The atmosphere at The Haunt was already electrifying even before the support group Ratbag took to the stage to produce a rousing and vibrant performance which upped the temperature even more and spoke volumes for their own unique sound. Vita on lead vocals and accordian was visually captivating and soon had the audience in full swing and limbering up for the main event. Although I was not familiar with their songs they proved to not only be the perfect support but a very strong act in their own right.
“We, um, we brought you some stuff so you don’t get bored in here. I made you a new mixtape, I made you a new mixtape, I made you a new mixtape, miiiixxxxxxtape, there’s some stuff on there I really think you’ll like!” Is the immortal opening to DJ Yoda’s Stranger Things themed mixtape and live set. This basically told everyone at Concorde 2 all we needed to know about the live set he is about to thrown down. But let’s rewind an hour or so before we delve into the evening’s main event.
Sunday night is an odd one for a gig. If you’ve had a busy weekend all you really want to do is stay in and watch Marseille vs. FC Nantes on TV. But when the line-up is strong, you don’t mind missing a game, that on paper, will be one way traffic for Marseille, so with a happy heart at making the right decision, and a warm jacket on, I embarked for the Green Door Store for Kanzi’s new Sketches, Early Summer EP launch night.

The world famous Lollapalooza began life as a modest farewell tour for Jane’s Addiction frontman, Perry Farrel. The band had split-up at the time, stating differences in lifestyle, but reformed multiple times in the future. What Farrel had begun, without realising, was a long-standing legacy that revived itself in the form of the two day festival repeatedly, up until 1999. In 2006, it was officially revived permanently in Chicago before branching out internationally.
