Where and When?
Whelan's, Dublin - 19th November
Why? As we draw towards December one thing is inevitable, there'll be a year end list in every single music magazine. And you can name most of the favourites to top the polls already, Arcade Fire, Bloc Party, Kaiser Chiefs, Coldplay (for those with no taste) and Antony and the Johnsons will be featured on almost all of them.
However don't be shocked of you see ?Alligator? by The National cropping up on a few critics' lists. One of the best reviewed albums of the year it's slowly been winning the hearts and minds of music fans since it's release back in April.
