The night started off with a DJ set from Jake Rudh, who hosts the weekly dance night and radio show, Transmission. I have to give Jake a lot of credit for knowing his audience and for putting together music perfect for a Ladytron show. We heard everything from Kraftwerk to the Dr. Who theme to The Orb's Little Fluffy Clouds.
SONOIO opened things up right on time at 8:10 pm. It was just Alessandro Cortini on stage, with, what I presume, was the gadget you see in this video, hooked up to the lights:

It would have been really cool if he had a camera hooked up and pointed at the musical gadget and projected so we could see what he was doing. I wanted to see the hardware device up close.
Ladytron came out also right on time. …
