With number one album Sinners Never Sleep under their belts, Surrey rockers You Me At Six graced the Q Live stage last night (28 November), plyaing London's underground venue Concrete.
The band, who started their careers in 2008 when debut single Save It For The Bedroom, have released three albums since then, all progressively raising the profile to the point where fans inundated Q to get hold of free tickets for the show, while many queued up outside well in advance of the stage time.
When they did take the stage, the quickly worked the young crowd of competition winners into a frenzy, kicking things off with Hold Me Down opener The Consequence, triggering a loud sing-a-long to every song.
"Where's Katherine?" singer Josh Franceschi asked as the band paused mid gig eliciting a a glass-shattering scream from near the front of the stage as the band performed an impromptu rendition of happy birthday for the elated fan.
That wasn't the only extra service You Me At Six, offered their fans, allowing some of them to leave their coats on the front of the stage to avoid cloakroom chargers, though the singer did have to point out that "I'm not a shelf."
Playing a set mixed slow and fast songs, the show culminating in a highly energetic rendition of fan-favourite Underdog, during which the band leapt off stage walked to the bar and ordered a round of Tequila shots, which they downed before heading back to blitz out the final chorus.
You Me At Six played:
Jaws On The Floor
Safer To Hate Her
No One Does It Better
Bite My Tounge
Stay With Me
A full review of the show will appear in Q issue Q307, out late January 2011.
