 私的にかなり観るのを楽しみにしていたザ・ウィップ。彼らはマンチェスター出身で、エレクトロニカ系のダンス・ミュージックをやるインディー・バンドである。これがぜんぜん期待を裏切らないライブだった。

 私が到着した時はまだ一つ前のバンドが終わる頃で、ヴェニューの前には列も出来てなくすんなりと入れた。ところがザ・ウィップが始まる頃にはフルキャパまで埋まり、最前列までぎっしり状態。大歓声で始まり、みんな踊りだす。おまけにヴェニュー内の気温はどんどん上がり始めて蒸し風呂状態に。メンバー達もあまりMCを入れずして、クラブのDJ形式に曲を演奏していく。とにかく彼らの曲はじっとして観るのが不可能なくらいに踊れる曲なんで、自分でも知らず知らずのうちに足でリズムを取ってるし。カメラ持ってなかったら完璧に踊ってたなと思いながら撮影する自分。もう楽しすぎて、なんだかわくわくしてしまう。

 最後の曲を演奏するときは完璧の観客のハイが頂点に達したのを察したので、これは大暴れになりそうということで、最前列から退散することに。そしたら見事にぐちゃぐちゃ状態の大暴れになり、ヴェニュー全体が飛びはねながら踊り始めた。狭いヴェニューではあったが、隅々までが踊りまくってる。

 終わったあとはみんな汗でびっしょり。みんな外の冷たい空気を求めて出口へと殺到する。丁度そこへ入ってきたバーの人が氷を入れたボールを持ってたもんだから、彼女は大人気になっていた(笑)。
