Yesterday we spent an evening with Fascination Records as part of the month-long iTunes Live Festival at Camden’s Roundhouse. We can’t offer a full review because, truth be told, the evening featured nearly as many G&Ts as corking pop tunes, but here are a few notes on the night’s performances.
Now, just before 9.30, it’s time for the main event. The Saturdays have flown back from LA especially for tonight’s gig, but there’s no sign of jet laggy sluggishness as the girls turn in a slick, well-drilled performance. They canter through a slightly abridged version of their ‘Work’ tour setlist, which means we get the ‘Shut Up And Drive’ / ‘I Kissed A Girl’ / ‘So What’ medley, acoustic renditions of ‘Beggin’ and ‘Chasing Lights’ (nice strumming, Una), and stomping newbies ‘Wordshaker’ and ‘One Shot’. A lovely ‘Up’ singalong rounds off a cracking evening. Ta very much Fascination Records!
