    Fri 12 Jan – Adem, Vashti Bunyan, Vetiver

    I managed to arrive fifteen minutes or so after the show started due to some confusion with the tickets (they put the time the bands started on the ticket in big numbers rather than door time), however the show was excellent. There was a lot of overlap between the bands with no bands playing a full set, instead going on and off for a few songs.

    Vetiver played backing for most of the bands except Juana Molina who primarily performed by herself using a loop station. She managed to create a large sound by overdubbing herself on guitar, making beats on a synth keyboard and drum machine and layering her voice up to six times. Judging by the audience reaction she was well recieved, and probably for me the most impressive act.

    Adem also played with most of the bands, and as curator he obviously was the most involved. However he didn't play many of his own songs, Pillow was performed as a duet with Vashti Bunyan, and Everything You Need being another highlight.
