Managed to check out local band dREA launch their album in Cobblestone Joes at the start of the month. The 11 tracks 'Bravest of All' is a superb record and well worth checking out. The vocal layering and massive amount of instruments played throughout the album is simply excellent. Its an album you will constantly be going back to for another listen and hear another superb inclusion in the song structures.
Lead singer Damien Drea's voice is a deep almost Matt Berninger type vibe adding a darkness to the tracks. Had the pleasure of heading along to the acoustic launch of the album the week previous and then tonight we saw the band giving the songs welly on front of packed venue.
Do yourself a favour and go buy the album and go check them out live, Cheers for a great night of music!!
So this years Glastonbury headliners Kasabian played down the local Milk Market recently , What a treat to have such a high profile act call in to us. The band have played in Dolans on two other occasions and love to come back to the city before hitting every festival known to man for the summer. The hard working lads have just brought out there 5th studio album "48:13" titled due to the running time.
Been to see them many festivals including last year in Marley Park, The always bring a great energy and showmanship to a gig. The party atmosphere was in full swing in the big top in limerick on the night in question and the crowd got more into as the night went on, The new tracks are very much party anthems relying heavily on dancer beats going back to their routes. They work perfect on a live setting and as we saw clearly on the night.
Waterford band O Emperor opened up proceeding , unfortunately the early start and small crowd and festival sound rig didn't really show how brilliant this band are, There latest album is a must have and do go see them live if you get a chance over the summer.
As you will see below in the set the band left a few festival classics right to the end and the tent was well and truly hopping by the end of the night. Hopefully they will be back before another string of summer dates down the line, Cheers for a great night!

Managed to catch the superb We Cut Corners recently as they headlined the wonderfully newly refurbished Cobblestone Joes last friday night. The show was run by Seoda Shows which is now running gigs throughout the city and tonight saw the Dublin duo take to the stage as they just released their second album offering 'Think Nothing'. I picked up a copy of the album in vinyl form at the gig , Its an amazing quality record which included a cd copy within the sleeve (Nice touch). The artwork and weight of the vinyl is excellent and no expense was spared. Their debut album 'Today I Realised the I Could Go Home Backwards’ was nominated for a choice music prize and I have no doubt the new record will reach the same heights. They played a stormer of a set to a packed crowd , The lead singer , Guitarist and drummer Conall O’Breachain puts an amazing amount of energy into the live performance. I suppose you would have to when your playing most of the instruments. Go check them out live if you get a chance! Cheers for a great night.

Managed to catch Dublin outfit Girl Band in Bourkes last night, These lads sure pack a punch! The musical equivalent of jumping head first into the cold sea. The massive loud sound is backed up by a singer who has no care for his vocal chords, The guitarist and bassist were equipped with a huge armament of pedals adding to the wonderful chaos with various loops and distortions. The foundations of Bourkes were well and truly tested by this young quartet as they smashed through their set. Extremely enjoyable to watch this energy fest, check out the clip below for a sample of it. Cheers Lads!
