Cut The Transmission was amazing :-) bizarely I met someone who was at CTT and remebered I was the coffee drinker, funny what people remember...

I'll get back to Derry one day I hope. so much wildlife up there for me to (try to) photograph and there's bound to be a gig I can fit in while I'm there.

So ....

Lori Campell - Amazing
Sean Mcgowan - Amazing
Skinny Lister - Amazing

pretty much what I expected - an utterly amazing evening :-) :-) :-)

and even better ... the playlist between bands (skinny listers playlist) had a song on it I havn't heard on a venue playlist in what feels like about 20 years

Vagabonds by New Model Army

AWESOME

need sleep, new brain, new hip, new knees and food....

I saw Sarah Jarosz, Sara Watkins and Aoife O'Donovan at Whelans. This was the final night of their "I'm with her" tour / collaboration. Wonderful gig. Like a modern day version of Trio (Dolly/Linda/Emmylou).

True to form, Will Varley was ridiculously good at the Railway last night. His new songs sounded incredible, and he dealt admirably with the world's most persistent heckler (note to would-be hecklers: when you leave part-way through to go to the bar and your departure is met with whispered cries of "Lock the doors" and "Quick, everybody hide!", you've probably taken the joke too far . . .)

But Will was a total pro, being as endearing as always and completely converting my three uninitiated mates into new fans. Also a nice touch in giving shouts out to FT and Beans on Toast for supporting his career (and to the former for having survived the 'Crazy Hecklers of Winchester' in his formative years) - brilliant stuff!

Just seen Slaves. They were brilliant. Their backdrop has got a lot bigger since I last saw them, they now have lights and their name behind them! They are still the same though, with their 'Fuck it' attitude. I love how the lead singer seems to have gone "shit, we need a drummer but I can't be arsed to learn the drums so two drums and two cymbals will have to do' There was the roughest pit I've seen for a long time at Rescue Rooms (I'm trying to make that sentence make sense but the alcohol is having other ideas). They had a crowdsurfing manta ray during 'Feed The Mantaray' before they went crowdsurfing during 'Hey' the last song.

On May 8 I saw Muse play at Webster Hall in NYC ... basically the gig I've been dreaming of for the past few years. They've been my favorite for about a decade but I was too shy to go to shows until later when they were just doing arenas/stadiums ... always regretted missing the smaller ones so this was a super special chance to see them in that setting. Played a couple oldies I hadn't heard yet and everything was just much rockier, like old days. Plus the crowd was great. Amazing.
I've got a quiet summer coming up (saving for FT's fall tour) but do have two gigs in DC: The Vaccines on June 7 and Royal Blood/Mini Mansions on June 10.
2011: 8/26, 28, 11/4(x2); 2012: 2/21, 22, 23, 24, 3/9, 11, 12, 18, 9/8, 10, 11, 12, 14, 15, 28, 29, 30; 2013: 6/5, 6, 7(x2), 8, 7/26, 31, 8/1, 2, 10/4, 5, 11/16, 19, 29(X2). 2014: 6/4. 2015: 3/8, 9(x2), 5/12, 13, 14, 15. 18

Took daughter to Of Mice and Men the other day. Metalcore is interesting.

Festival report! First festival of the, errr ahem, summer... Spent the weekend at the Salmon Leap Festival in Leixlip. Three fantastic days of Irish music. The setting couldn't have been nicer: A big marquee in the grounds of a pub. Excellent sound and since there was only one stage no overspill. Highlights were:

Kíla - unbeatable
Máirtín O'Connor Trio - fast and furious trad
Luka Bloom - I tend to forget how good he is until I see him again
Ye Vagabonds - ballad singing brothers; they sang the most beautiful version of 'Barbara Ellen' I ever heard
Lynched - my first time seeing them after listening to the CD for months; great band
Damien Dempsey - the biggest crowd, and the loudest
Lisa O'Neill – my second time seeing her; I like her a lot

Next festival Glastonbury!

The gig I thought would never happen, but a year after the original date was cancelled, Wilko Johnson finally took the Academy stage in Dublin. It was worth the wait. If he and Frank played a double header at some stage, I think I could die happy!

Off tonight to see Public Enemy and the Cult.

Not sure how these two go together except in my head. Someone planning a tour is apparently in my head. I fully expect an amazing show from PE. Not as confident about the Cult...

We shall see...

Yesterday I went to see Sunny Afternoon, the Kinks musical. It was pretty good, as far as musicals without a plotline really go. Then went to see Pete Williams from Dexys at Boston Music Rooms, excellent night.

Went to Gentlemen of the Road Stopover last weekend. I wish I'd known the Macabees before, my loss! Alabama Shakes were great. For me the lowlight was the Flaming Lips. The spectacle of confetti and a giant hamster ball definitely didn't make up for the mediocre music. I also find a frontman spending excess time looking for audience adoration to be off putting.
Last night I saw Mumford again at Merriweather Post Pavallion. Both their Stopover set and last night were fantastic. I'm loving the new album and they did a great job of with both shows of mixing up sets and blending songs from all three LPs.

Twice drove down to DC in the last few days ... Sunday for The Vaccines and last night for Royal Blood and Mini Mansions. The Vaccines were fantastic, I hadn't seen them since Lolla in 2011 and obviously they have a lot more under their belt now. Already planning to see them a couple more times in late summer. I really dig their new album. Royal Blood were killer ... I'd seen them open for Arctic Monkeys at Finsbury Park (big festival setting) so it was nice to catch them in a smaller venue headlining. Mini Mansions are also awesome ... I think they've got a great combination of sounds.
