Little Boots @ The Garage...

Last Saturday night Darren, Stuart and I went to see Little Boots at The Garage in London's glitzy Highbury & Islington.

Free from a major record label Little Boots was here to celebrate the 10th anniversary of her debut album Hands (to be played in full); New in Town, Remedy, Symmetry (sadly no Phil Oakey on hand), Earthquake, Meddle, Mathematics, the lot!

It was fab. Victoria had lots of funny stories too (reading out terrible reviews of Hands from 10 years back), crazy outfits, glitter galore, a bubble machine, confetti canons, a laser light show, and lots and lots of sing-a-longs from her (mostly gay) fans.

And towards the end, a beautiful solo piano section ("It's not getting too Gaga, is it?") including a lovely version of New Order's "Bizarre Love Triangle" and Kate Bush's "Running Up That Hill".

Ninety minutes of a little superstar. We loved it.
