One of my favorite shows of last fall was at the 02 Academy Brixton, which packs in nearly 5,000 people. I thought a huge, sold-out place would make us seem miles from the crowd, but the audience was so fun that it felt intimate. It was my birthday, and they sang "Happy Birthday" to me in unison. —Ed Droste
