Eventually I came to the galley and the size of Tate Modern is almost intimidating both inside and out. The inner atrium is probably one of the biggest indoor open spaces I have been to, its incredible to think of the machinery that once occupied the space. I could probably fill about 10 blog posts with information about the cool work I saw but that might get a bit boring so instead you can check out the photos and images below. Certainly the Russian Communism posters looked amazing all hung together, I have a new found love for detailed figures and red blocks of colour!

We ventured out to Camden for the second Moderat gig at London's Koko venue. A stunning venue for the gig and the stage set up was brilliant with long time collaborators Pfadfinderei providing visuals on a 4 screen cross over back drop which added a bit of depth to the visuals. Sonically Moderat float between heartfelt electronics and pure techno bangers, A New Error had an amazing effect on the crowd with its surging bass lines sending everyone into a frenzy but slow burners like Let In The Light brought things down a little giving everyone a chance to catch their breath. Bad Kingdom also seemed to unite the crowd in a chorus of "This is not, what you waaaaaaaaanted". Definitely worth the 4 month wait and any gigs that get me out of Aberdeen are a bonus, just another day in the big smoke!
