    Well, her (not their) debut album is universally acclaimed, including top and near-the-top placements on some reputable ATOY lists for 2011, so based on that the sky's the limit, I guess.

    I thought EMA was pretty good. Certainly more engaging than when I first saw her open for Wild Beasts last year. Being familiar with material also helped, I guess.

    Cooler days don't necessarily mean appreciably cooler nights. If it's cooler due to a cloud cover, the clouds trap the heat, and the nights may be just or nearly as warm.
