Launch of StoryMap Dublin

    StoryMap is a new multimedia project that gives people an alternative tour of Dublin through the kind of bizarre stories you’d have to drink in Grogan’s for a few years to gather. In fairness, that’s quite possibly exactly what the people behind the site did, but they’ve gathered some quality tales from a … Continue reading

Much More Van Etten

    I saw that The National are playing in Berlin when I’ll be there in a few weeks, but given that I caught them in the Olympia before Christmas, I wasn’t pushed about seeing them again. A good old-fashioned catch-up chat over a bottle of wine in an alleyway should suffice. But the other … Continue reading

Other Voices Series 9 – Broadcast Schedule

The 9th series of Other Voices kicks off on our screens in three weeks, which now feels like an eternity because the line-up just looks so, so good. In a particularly fine year for the long-standing favourite, a delicious bunch of bands were gathered down in Dingle while the rest of us were moaning about … Continue reading

Tips: Whelan’s Ones Two Watch 2011

January is a bleak, harsh motherflipper of a month and heading into a year with a silly name like 2011 on the back of the constant barrage of bad news that was 2010 is even more miserable. Luckily, the good people at Whelan’s, State.ie, The Ticket and Tickets.ie have put their brains together in a … Continue reading

Nominations for The Meteors 2011 Announced

Yesterday it was announced that there would be no Meteor Ireland Music Awards this year due to the people what normally do them not wanting to do them. The out-pouring of grief from dedicated music fans that followed this announcement brought a tear to my eye. What are the people of Ireland supposed to do … Continue reading

My 25 Favourite Songs of 2010

Here I give to you my own personal selection of the 25 songs I enjoyed most in the last twelve months in no particular order other than the order I think they sound best in. I tried to keep it down to 20 songs, I tried really hard. Then I realised that I did 25 … Continue reading

20 Favourite Albums of 2010

My 20 Favourite Albums of 2010

1. Kanye West – My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy I love Kanye. I love his arrogance and unpredictability. I love his cartoon fun-fair hip-hop on his early albums. I love the sparse honesty of 808s & Heartbreaks. His habit of pissing people off is a testament to his insistence on telling it how he sees … Continue reading

Janelle Monáe - Tripod

Janelle Monáe – Tripod – Photos

I’ll by-pass all the unnecessary details about the snow-related chaos that potentially threatened the arrival of Janelle Monáe and her fans to Tripod on a Wednesday evening when Dublin once again fell to pieces. Despite all these issues, the venue was well-filled when I arrived in during support act Brian Deady. I found his style … Continue reading

Grand Pocket Orchestra - State vs AU - Mercantile

State vs AU – Mercantile – Photos

Great night in The Mercantile on Friday as a big crowd came in to get good value for their free entry and see three wonderful live acts in cosy quarters. Cloud Castle Lake kicked it all off with yet another performance of breathtaking beauty. The Lowly Knights followed with an energetic set that had the … Continue reading

Spoon - Academy

Spoon – Academy – Photos

    I was a bit worried that this gig might have turned out to be one of those awkwardly unpopulated affairs, considering the noticeable push for ticket sales in the week leading up to the event. When I arrived, O Emperor had just begun their set to a fairly standard crowd for that time … Continue reading
