    Hmm tough one. The great were Glen Tilbrook @ Whelans Lloyd Cole @ Vicar St Dylan @ The Point The *real bad* were Glen Hansard @ Whelans Grand Drive @ Whelans (Sat night, brutal crowd) The "Promised much but disappointed" were Morrissey @ the Ambassador Aimee Mann & The National Stadium The one gig that really surprised me was Coldplay @ the Point. I was expecting it to be poor but it rocked in a big way.

    Three that come to mind are....Low at the Olympia, Natalie Merchant at the Olympia and Cathal Coughlan in the Shelter. Joe Pernice played a stormer at Vicar St but that might have been the end of 2001.....I'm trusting my memory on these, not always reliable.

    Skylarking - Vicar St. The Frames, Damian Rice, Gemma Hayse, Mundy, Paddy Casey, Kila, ... I could go on and on and ... The gig was outstanding. Never seen anything better ever, not just this year. I for got the Mundy Gig in the Lobby this summer. Damian Rice turned up and played Guitar and Glenn Handsard was on Drums for a bit. Afterward Damian and Mundy were on the street outside busking away for over an hour, playing covers. Classic. I was at the Heinekin gig (Damian R - The Frames) b4 that and that is probably No.3
