2022-07-03 Fontaines DC - Iveagh Gardens, Dublin

I've been waiting a long time to see Fontaines DC live again after last seeing them back in May 2019 at Forbidden Fruit.  Originally scheduled for July 2020, everyone's friend, COVID, got in the way and mae sure that didn't happen.  To make maters worse, the rescheduled date in 2021 didn't happen either, for the exact same reason! Fear not though, it is 2022 and not even COVID was going to stop this gig happening!  I packed my bag and headed off to the Iveagh Gardens in Dublin, for what promised to be one of the highlights of the year! So, was it worth waiting for?  Oh hell yeah! Others in the media will tell you more about it, but all you need to know is that it was a hit filled, fantastic gig by a band at the top of their game.  Oh and the rain stayed away! Setlist (courtesy of  Setlist.FM ) is as follows: In ár gCroíthe go deo A Lucid Dream Sha Sha Sha Roman Holiday How Cold Love Is I Don't Belong You Said The Couple Across the Way Televised Mind Big Shot Hurri

2018-03-22 Bell X1 - Vicar Street Dublin

Bell X1 … If ever an Irish band deserved to make it big, it’s these guys.  They write perfect pop songs,  but for some unknown reason, remain one of Irelands best kept secrets. Anyway, they announced a 5 night residency in Vicar Street, so I just had to go see them! For the first three nights of the residency, they played an album in full,  and I got to hear “Music In Mouth”.  Obviously the gig didn’t stop there and we were treated to a selection of their greatest hits also. Fantastic gig by an amazing band in a damn fine venue.  What more could you want? Check out the photos below:
