They were really on it tonight and cannot wait to see them again. 3oh3 really have their work cut for them to follow this storming set.

It's a lively set for sure but some of the songs take the pace of the set down like touching on my, did after the opener, it was weird listening to starstrukk without Katy Perry vocals. They did a cover of rock you like a hurricane, not a bad cover of a rubbish song, short lived thankfully too!! I'm not sure why there's a guitarist on stage as oh can barely hear it most of the time you can't, although it does play its part during rich man, where it's actually audible for most of the song.

They play another short cover this time r Kelly’s I can believe I can fly, funny but still abut rubbish. And the guitar sound makes another appearance! Other songs that feature in there set include house party, still around, streets of gold, don't dance, love 2012 encore opener double vision and set closer don't trust me. It's a fairly decent set to be honest, the vocals are good with the mix of effects employed on them at times, I quite enjoyed the synth and drum driven sound but some of the songs work really well and others they miss the mark but not by much.

Hyro Da Hero - 3/5
Innerpartysystem - 5/5
3oh3 - 4/5
