Since moving venue in February I think Popstarz has been going from strength to strength. The crowd is a bit older, much nicer and know their music which is good for us – we don’t have to wheel out Mr Brightside every time the dancefloor gets a bit thin!

This is what we played in our first set last night…

Ladytron – Runaway
Presets – This Boys in Love
Depeche Mode – Strange Love
Language – Salman Rushie, Bono, Sting
VHS or Beta – Nights On Fire
Rascals – Freakbeat Phantom
Reverend & The Makers – Heavyweight Champion
Interpol – Slow Hands (Britt Daniel Remix)
Patrick Wolf – Magic Position
Vampire Weekend – Oxford Comma
Zutons – Valerie
Ting Tings – That’s Not My Name
Yeah Yeah Yeahs – Pin
CSS – Rage (Rat is Dead)
Dandy Warhols – Get Off
Strokes – Someday

Other stuff we threw in later included…

MGMT – Time To Pretend
Ting Tings – Shut Up & Let Me Dance
Blondie – Heart of Glass
Muse – Hysteria
Placebo – Teenage Angst
Blink 182 – What’s My Age Again (hee!)

One thought on “Popstarz

  1. If I had been there when you played Magic Position followed by Oxford Comma I’d have gone completely mental.

    Just so you know 🙂
