Darwin Deez helped kick off Liverpool Music Week with an energetic set at Mojo.
The American group ploughed through tracks like 'Constellations' and crowd pleaser 'Radar Detector' in front of a full house.
There were also big cheers for the band as they showed off their dancing skills with planned routines between songs.
The venue had been busy throughout the evening with emerging band Fly With Vampires impressing with 'Everything But Sleep' and track 'While You Smoke'.
The Liberty Vessles, The Wild Eyes and Slopes also performed at the opening event.
Liverpool Music Week 2010 continues tonight (Saturday) with Hadouken! while Leftfield, Warpaint and Chase And Status set to play in the coming weeks.
