Tramlines 2012 Day 2

After the showers of the previous night, day 2 was warm and dry, so we headed off the beaten track to Yellow Arch studios to see some of the electronica style noodling in progress. It was a bit subdued, but by all accounts it livened up considerably in the evening.

We were still suffering from the excesses of the previous night, so took things easy in Bungalows and Bears before visiting the New Music stage for Alarm Bells, a band featuring half of Danananackroyd who I remember being one of the highlights of last year. They coped admirably with a power cut halfway through their set and turned in a solid performance.

They were followed by Esben and The Witch - a gothicky, Siouxie and the Banshees inspired sort of sound. Not bad, but not really my sort of thing.

After that, it was time for an Ostrich burger and the bus home for a (comparatively) early night!
