Valentine's Day may be the day of love and romance, but for those in attendance at the Pageant on Thursday, it was a night to get funky, with or without a partner.
The dance floor was packed, the lights slowly dimmed and silhouettes began forming on stage, creating a wave of excitement amongst the audience.
I don't know if I've ever felt more out of place than I did on Saturday night at the Pageant. Ed Sheeran, the 21-year-old British singer-songwriter, whose single "The A Team" has over 50 million views on YouTube, had sold out the venue. To my surprise, the ticket buyers were almost entirely teenaged girls.
On Thursday night, the Pageant hosted a bill that featured two excellent bands whose styles and sounds cover a wide range.
