Brakes, Voluntary Butler Scheme & Mascot Fight

Tuesday night, I saw a great gig at The Royal!

Mascot Fight

First on were Mascot Fight. They seem more relaxed and into the music every time I see them. Great pop songs, fun and happiness!

Voluntary Butler Scheme

Next was Voluntary Butler Scheme. He did a set of loops but in a very pop song way, like a mix of Jens Lekman and Harry Nilsson. Wonderful singing voice too.


Last on were Brakes. They played a hugely energetic but seemingly effortless set. And it was quite bizarre to see the way they switched from countryness to punky aggression with barely a breath. Lovely!
