The spirit of 90s scrappy indie is alive and well tonight. Joining The Go! Team on this UK tour are Seattle girl duo Smoosh - and yes in this case, they really are girls, not women.
Twelve-year-old Chlo hammers away at the drums while Asya (only two years her senior) accompanies on keyboards - this kind of simple, punchy act is probably two a penny in their home of Seattle but a refreshing change for UK audiences.
Think Chas and Dave in a playground punch-up with The White Stripes and you're half way there.
The Grates hail from Australia and fit beautifully into any preconceived idea of upbeat, sunshine soaked Aussie punk bands. Chirpy front woman Patience Hodgson leads them through a set of Yeah Yeah Yeahs-inspired brattish punk ditties, the perfect warm-up for tonight's main act.
The Go! Team surf onstage on a wave of hype and deservedly so, with their debut album Thunder, Lightning, Strike picking up a Mercury Prize nomination last year for it's multi-layered mash-ups of TV themes, searing Sonic Youth guitars, hip-hop and plain old fun.
However, the problems start with the delivery of that recorded sound as a live experience.
Where we might expect to see a brass section, DJ, or at least some knob twiddling, these elements are relegated to offstage backing tracks while the band struggle to recreate the sound with guitars, drums and keyboards alone. Surely, a trick has been missed.
However, where the intricate details are lost in a wall of noise, this is also the appeal of The Go! Team live.
They give everything they have, charging through album classics and newer tunes to a projected backdrop of achingly cool video imagery and accompanied by audience chants.
Where The Go! Team miss out on delivering note-perfect, clear renditions of their songs they at least know how to rock the house.
