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

Emma Langford - Mariana

It's not everyday that a friend produces a video for one of my favourite artists, but today, that's exactly what happened.  The very talented Sophia Cadogan produced this beautiful video for Emma Langford's latest release called 'Mariana'. I've seen Emma perform many times over the last few years and it's always a joy.  That shot is from her set at Knockanstockan 2019.  Once we are all allowed back out to play, you should go see her live. The track is available to buy on Bandcamp with all proceeds going to Safe Ireland , a very worthy cause. Check out the video below:
