Originally, this was going to be my night in this week, a quiet night in the middle of a week full of awesome bands. But then I realised that Youthmovies were playing in a bar only about 15minutes from my flat. So to continue my week of musical awesomeness I had to go to this show. And what a reward for dragging myself to this show…

Instead of the normal Youthmovies show, this was the party after the UK première of The Tracey Fragments, a new film starring Ellen Page. So Youthmovies played along to a video backdrop of live vj clips from the film. And rather than just playing the normal set, the band alternated between improvisations and their own songs. It was a powerful set, and reminds me why they are one of my favourite live bands.
