Tripod. I shouldn't have waited so long before typing this. Everything's a little faded now.

I know we arrived. The crowd was easy. Up the front was an obvious choice. I think there was the tail end of a support, but I'm not sure.

Ladytron were unexpected. Two girls, a selection of slightly depressed men. Synths, but pushed through pedals. Not big open angry synths. Korgs. MS. The drummer seemed blonde.

They played through the set. Sound was a bit dodgy. The girls seemed to have trouble with it too. Lots of things were going at once. Things may have been getting lost in other things. The girls looked cool. If girls came from the dark future to play dead railway stations, they would be these girls.

They finished up. There was an encore.
