Dinner was late on Saturday which was useful since the night was to go on for a great deal of time.
At the Indian establishment I dined at I chose a rather hot number: a phal. If you have never had one before I do suggest you give it a try. Though not mentioned on any menu and certainly not for the faint hearted, every Indian/Bangladeshi cook worth his weight in curry will certainly know how to make it. It will put a fire in your belly and sweat on your brow which is a great way to start the night.
Precipitation continued as I made my way over to the Black Swan.
Arriving soaked through was not to be a major problem since getting inside the venue it was similarly soggy, though this time it was sweaty ravers causing it. Frivolities ensued, a host of stellar acts put together by the Bris-tek team. Number 11 had headliners Black Sun Empire and Enei on the main stage both of whom were no disappointment. Each played to an absolutely packed room of skanking revellers. And upstairs the 24 Garage Girl crew threw an equally good bash including Shosh Oshbegosh and Myndi Dykestrap pumping out that bassline everyone loves to have a knee up to.
It must have been the curry as most of the rest of the night was a blur, other than the good music and cute young lady.
Oh and I remember the journey back was very wet as acknowledged by the puddles in Bristol this week.
