This set featured the music that inspires band members Peanut and Simon; as a result, it featured everything from Motown to ’80s tracks and commercial indie hits. This variety was lost on the less musically knowledgeable in the crowd, and the numbers on the dancefloor varied throughout the night. That, however, could have had more to do with the fact that they were playing in the garden, and for mid-October it was a particularly steamy evening. We really enjoyed the variety, though. During their stay in the city, the boys went on a desert safari (we can’t imagine Peanut on a camel), scaled the Burj Khalifa and stayed in the lush Raffles hotel. We hear they were so keen on Dubai that they’re hoping to return with the whole band when their new album is released in 2011. Do it!
