    Really good gig, Beck was brilliant, I love Guero so it was good to hear some of the songs from it live. The puppets he had on stage were great and the little skit on the puppets going around Dublin was very funny. The band had a little dinner party on stage and used all the glasses and plates as percussion instruments, think that was the highlight of his set for me. Radiohead were on top form as well, from what i rememember they played Spinning Plates, Karma Police, Creep to finish, Bangers and Mash, My Iron Lung, Lucky, Pyramid Song, 2+2=5 and more!! The stage show was great, they had what looked like broken fragments of glass stuck up on the back of the stage to show the videos. Thom's voice sounded really good too and with the perfect weather for it, it made for a great concert.

    Puppets were funny alright. Not mad about Beck's set tho, a bit too heavy on Guero and the new one for me. I saw the dinner table thing last year but it's always welcome! That puppet video was hilarious. "Muthafukkin leprechauns n s**t". Radiohead were faultless as usual I thought. Thom in fine voice, great on How To Disappear... Like the new stuff too. Anyone catch Deerhoof? Didnt know too much about them before hand. Enjoyable but silly i thought.

    Deerhoof... i duno.. i reckon the whole set sounded like a rehersal... didnt like them at all. Beck was ok.. puppets were funny alright. As for radiohead.. I duno. Faultless..maybe, but im coming to the opinion that radioheads music just hasnt aged well... i felt slightly bored at it to be honest..

    I thought Deefhoof were great, I never liked them on record but loved them last night. Really regret not seeing them in the Music Centre on Thursday night. Beck, very cool, I realised just before he went on stage that I'd never seen him live before, I've been missing out. Puppets, wonderful. Radiohead were amazing, 7th time seeing them and probably the second best gig I've seen of theirs. With the exception of Bodysnatchers they played the cream of the new stuff too, I've been waiting 6 years to hear a finalised, recorded, version of Nude so I'm very optimistic about the version that's going to be on the album.

    It would be wrong to say all of it, but theres large sections of their music, the bends, kid A which i just dont really listen to anymore, having been a real fan, because it just slightly bores me now. I suppose its just that ive moved on in my musical tastes... So why did i go see them again, well, nostaligic reasons i suppose. On the setup itself. I thought the toilets were a disaster. and the food selection wasnt great either

    I thought it was excellent. And I was happy to see Radiohead changed from the set I saw them play 2 weeks ago at the sziget festival. In Budapest they played a much more festival-friendly set including Fake Plastic Trees, Planet Telex and Street Spirit... but no Creep. It being there own gig they made it more interesting for themselves here, Id like to know the name of that new tune (I think it was new anyway) - It consisted primarily of alotta bass, piano and Thoms vocals were great... Is that Videotape Unicron? Really enjoyed Beck also, except typically I chose to head for the toilet just as one of my favourite tunes began, Golden Age. Beck didnt look great himself.

    "define being a "real fan" scratch that.. meant being a fan as in buying the cds and going to the gigs. duno why i put the real in front of it..tiredness maybe.. it definitely was for any of the "well im a real fan as ive seen em a billion times blah, blah" stuff.. Though i can see how that perception might arise..

    You sound very confused! I thought it was class myself, although mellow enough compared to pearl jam in the point the night before

    Great gig, they were on top form alright. The new songs especially sound amazin...videotape is unreal...the older stuff sounded good too but just didn't do it for me anymore. Maybe it was the drunk muppet in front of me singing every word outta key and outta time..

    Amazing gig, loved every minute. Managed to get pit pass and the views of the stage were excellent. Beck was also great. Deerhoof, good but agree with earlier comment, a bit silly.

    Very good gig, as good as any of the other time I've seen them, Beck was great too and the marionettes were class, really made the show for me. I do have to say it annoys me that a band I like so much can draw so many idiots, guy beside me keep holding his head in both his hands and then lifting one or both hands into the air as if he was witnessing some sort of divine moment, he was like this right from the moment airbag started and anytime I looked over he was doing the same thing. I think he had decided weeks ago that this was going to be the most magical and spiritual moment of his life, although thinking about it he may just have been pilled off his face but I'm going to stick to my original conclusion. I saw them in Sziget two weeks ago, they changed the set quite a bit and I thought they were much better last night. I really don't see the need to cheer the line "I float down the Liffey", I don't understand the mentality of the cheerers at all.

    The first new song that Thom was playing piano on was videotape, not the one that he started out standing beside the piano playing occasional notes, I'm not sure what that one is called, hadn't heard it before.
