Justice gig Birthday weekend

*Ok, I really should do all this in date order, but seeing as my flickr basic account only allowed me to upload a batch big enough for my Justice gig photos and that I couldn't be bothered uploading the rest on Picasa, my Justice gig thing will have to come first and the rest of the weekend will follow.
PS my apologies to anyone on dial up, I've not worked out how to do the READ MORE link through Blogger yet, so all photos/vids are going to be on front page.

The lead up to the gig was pretty rushed. After limiting myself to just a few drinks with my pops in order not to be too drunk and sleep through the gig, we managed to get a pizza, rush home get changed, scream at the downed internet, find address of gig and ticket reference via phone, running to bus stop while eating said tiny pizza we made it to Liverpool on time. (Although I was a little dazed when going for pregig drink having fell asleep on bus and still being groggy)

Group shot

The light show was pretty intense at times. The lighting guy did a great job.

There was much dancing.

And Justice made me think this was what a DJ set by the Mighty Boosh guys would be like

And if you haven't bought it, Justice's album Cross is pretty sweet (if you like that Daft Punk electro dance kind of thing)

Infact you may of heard there track D.A.N.C.E, which I tried to record.
PS apologies for the jumping camera, do you know how hard it is to not dance while a really dancey track is being played?...Very hard!

Here are all my photos from the night.

(Some guidance on the above slideshow. Move cursor to top of frame for skip/speed settings. Move cursor to bottom for thumbnails of set. Click photo for more info/link)

Also big shout to Fancy, the warm up guys for Justice. They had possibly the campest lead singer since Freddie Mercury. Just think of a rock band and their lead singer singing like that Chris Rock character in 5th element and you have an idea. They were very very good, even if the crowd didn't get them.

PS If anyone knows any good free software I can use to chop down mp4's if they could let me know that would be great, thanks.

Deutlich I highly recommend you hang out side the entrance and beg for tickets. It really was a great show. I had loads of fun.
