Went to the last day of Sonar by day, and saw a great live set from Claro Intellecto, another Apple laptop live set, was hoping to hear ´Chicago´´ but he didn´t play it.

Went to Sonar by night last night, the last night of Sonar… it´s such an amazingly huge event, lots more areas opened up, than on the opening night. it takes 5 minutes just to walk to/from each area. Devo were great, also saw bits of Mogwai, Tadeo Vs Damien Schwartz, JPLS, Tractile, Dixon (Innervisions), Matthew Dear´s ‘Big Hands’ live band, with him doing the front man/singer part. Didn´t stay for Ame, Jeff Mills or Dave Clarke, instead went to the Poker Flat Records night at The Loft @ Razzmatazz, which is an enormous multi level/multi room club, and was absolutely rammed with 1000s of messy people in each area. In one room they had Oxia & Agoria (advertised as live but was DJing back to back with Oxia). In the other room we saw Guido Schneider and Patrick Chardronnet live (another Apple laptop live set). It´s hard to enjoy these events, being so sore and tired, being bashed into by 1000s of people non stop (imagine chinese laundry on a huge scale), and it taking 40 minutes to get into a toilet or get served a drink. Would have loved to have stayed for Steve Bug, but was just too tired and over it.

Today, Sunday, is the day of all the day-night label´s beach parties, hoping to get to the Minus one, keen to see Gaiser, Magda, Pierce, Houle, Hawtin etc.
