O Emperor Live at Limerick Live, Cruises Street 02/01/2010

The fantastic idea of organising a street event on cruises street unfolded today, It saw the pedestrian street transformed into a mini music festival with two stages at either end of the street. The brain child of HMV & Dolans worked a treat, the only bad thing today was the intermittent showers. Which was the main reason I only got a chance to check out O Emperor and John Spillane and retire without the flu I hope. Hopefully the event becomes an annual thing. So glad I got to check out O Emperor, What an amazing talent these Irish lads are. Such a brilliant live band they have to be seen if you can. Their sound is incredibly tight and they are constantly gigging of late all ahead of their latest album release "Hither Thither" which came out yesterday. I finally got my hands of their album today after exhausting their EP "Persephone" which I picked up at their last gig in dolans back in January (Review Here). Got to listen to the album driving home and falling in love with it already!
They have improved live even if that's possible since seeing them last, their touring of the UK im sure played a big part in this. They played a lovely set of 5 songs all from their must get new album. These guys are playing in Dolans on the 23rd of this month, You would be mad to miss it!
Set :
Don't Mind Me
Taloned Air
Don Quixote
