Kelley said to me yesterday "Isn't a bit weird coming all the way over here and then going to a Britpop dance party?" And it is, I suppose, but it's interesting to hear what gets played and what doesn't in comparison to back home. Highlights of Saturday night's Modern Life (at the Local 506, Chapel Hill/Carrboro fans) included a rare outing by Dubstar, Altered Images, and, for perhaps the first time I've heard it played straight for…well, years, Slight Return. I had to restrain myself from doing the Lard bits. Also: amusing for five people on the dancefloor to all turn into Bez as soon as Step On started playing. (I may have been responsible for Lucky Soul's first transatlantic club outing after they were played earlier in the evening. Do Ruffa Lane have a street team?) Sadly, a wardrobe malfunction meant that fancy dress could not be worn, but I have rectified that today (buying a white shirt turned out to be a tougher task than it really needed to be), so it will get an outing sometime before I leave. Promise.
