We Were Promised Jetpacks / Menagerie
07.09.09 Pretty Vacant, DüsseldorfSecond Jetpacks show within a couple of days and their last gig in Germany. again, the small basement club is packed and the air is sweltering. I only managed to listen to the last two songs of supporting act Menagerie but it's enough to be glad to have missed them in Cologne completely.
We Were Promised Jetpacks played their debut album in full though in slightly changed order. The band seemed to be a bit tired but rocked the house anyway. The crowd wasn't as wild as in Cologne but I guess this had to do with the heat and that there was hardly any space to dance. There was no encore this time as the band had chosen to play the whole record during the normal set with Short Bursts being the phenomenal finale.
You can imagine how well this short tour went for the guys as they had no shirts left to sell (no surprise regarding the cheap price of 9,50 €) only cds.
I guess their next German tour will see the band play bigger venues and they deserve it.
