Tonight (which now technically is yesterday evening) I went to see The Kills live at Voxhall in Århus. The ticket was bought in, uh, January so I had my hopes well up there. Sadly not everyone masters the art of adjusting their clocks to daylight saving time - among those we can now count in The Kills team.
