Be Young, Be Foolish, Be Happy!

Glasgow Popfest 2011 at Heavenly was a total treat from start to finish.  So many of the bands sizzled.  Hopefully a good night's sleep will have me awake enough (3 late nights in a row...jings!) to jot down a few words on the subject but in the meantime, here's what made it from my Jumpdrive and into Virtual DJ through the magic of drag and drop:
