37 Replies and 7021 Views Review of Battles, etc in Vicar Street  7021  37 Started by  AstonishingSodApe
(Topic has multiple pages1 2 )
The review I've just read by Daragh Murray on Cluas (of last night's Battles gig) is one of the most ridiculous I've read in years. Is he taking the piss Does he honestly expect a BOUNCER to appreciate Battles And what's this toss about 'Exaggerated emotion, tossed scarves, and sweaty, meaningful stares' WTF The gig was incredible - the band was lost in the music, as always, completely dedicated and performing faultlessly. He admits he knew nothing about the band before going - even the smal...

2 Replies and 2490 Views Primavera  2490  2 Started by  mixtapepublicity Anyone over in Barcelona for this one What a damn excellent weekend. My favourites were Public Enemy, Sebadoh, Les Savy Fav, Caribou, Midnight Juggernauts (what I can remember of them in the haze), Devo, Devastations, Okkervil River, Notwist, MGMT. I don't think I got to see half as many as I should have but what can you do. Portishead were dreary, as was Rufus W without his backing band.

0 Replies and 2032 Views Musical Mystery Tour in Carlow - Did anyone else go to it?  2032  0 Started by  Iambeave I was at a rave that had so much potential the other night: a huge warehouse, funky little marquee, and no cops. But where were the people We were told to keep it hush hush - but when that means that you have an empty warehouse with about forty people dancing, then what's it all for Apparantly PLUG (the organisers) had a license for 1000 people. I think there were about 300 people there. What did everyone think of it, if anyone went I'd a great night dancing, but like ...

11 Replies and 3202 Views The National in the Olympia  3202  11 Started by  Quint Seems only yesterday that they last played the Olympia but last night's gig not as good. Started well but far too many slower songs which led to a long mid-set slump...they blew the roof off with 'Mr.November' at the end but all in all, not the most memorable of gigs.

2 Replies and 2163 Views American Music Club - Whelans last Sat  2163  2 Started by  Quint Great, great gig last week- Mark Eitzel in great form. Lots of funny anecdotes and one incredibly filthy joke from the great man. Neil Hannon popped up on vocals for one song. Amazingly after 25 years they are sounding better than ever, the two new members seemed to have given Eitzel and guitarist Vudi a new lease of life. Unusually, for an Irish gig, no morons in the crowd and no stupid heckles. What the hell have they done to Whelans though, bit more space alright but it seems a bit sou...

1 Replies and 2247 Views Alela Diane & Mariee Sioux  2247  1 Started by  dermot_trellis In Crawdaddy last night.. anybody head along Two talented backwoodsy folky gals from the same Californian town that Joanna Newsom is from. It was a very pleasant evening, and they're both very sweet.. though I think I may have hit my quota of 'nature imagery in song lyrics' for the next six months sometime fairly early on. I think Alela might make a few waves with her second album when it comes out later this year, if the quality of her stuff to date is anything to go by.

2 Replies and 2262 Views This Will Destroy You @ Whelans  2262  2 Started by  Quint Sublime, Mindblowing stuff and Very, very, LOUD!! They just pummel you with the most incredible guitar assault but it's all underpinned with some very subtle and deeply moving guitar lines. Mogwai's true heirs. Marred somewhat by groups of complete f**king morons talking loudly during the quiter moments however.
