Fink, at Gorilla, Manchester.
Since the band seem to play so few dates in UK, last night was a rare opportunity to see them live.
The set was largely based on the new album, but did contain sufficient old favourites to keep the crowd happy.
The venue, built into some railway arches, was fairly intimate, with, I'd guess about 400 happy souls within, whilst the P A system and
resultant sound was excellent.
It was one of those nights where one was left feeling that the band were having a great time, and that the evening was turning
into something quite special for them too.
Certainly, the sustained applause after the encore, and the band's reactions to it, were, quite simply, huge grins all round.
In the warm afterglow during what was, for us, a fairly long drive home, I definitely felt quite privileged to have witnessed something
a bit special.
