A snap I took on the iPhone 4S at the Franz Ferdinand gig in Dolan’s in Limerick.
And now we rewind to 2008. Ireland was still made of gold and we all ate diamonds for breakfast. So in the non-recessionary times we got Christy Moore, Chromeo, Crystal Castles, CSS, Elbow, Franz Ferdinand, Giveamanakick, Goldfrapp, Grace Jones, Grinderman, Jape, Jinx Lennon, Josh Ritter, Laura Izibor, Mark Geary, Michael Franti, My Bloody Valentine, Pivot, Sex Pistols, Sigur Ros, That Petrol Emotion, The Breeders, The Faint, Adrian Crowley, Faust, Gemma Hayes, Henry Rollins, Joan As Policewoman, Juana Molina, Lisa Hannigan, Michael Franti, Santogold, Stephen Malkmus and Yard Dogs.
On a side note, My Bloody Valentine were very loud, as to be expected. We were refused access to the bit unless we wore ear plugs. I did take them out for a second to actually hear the decibels, and I can confirm it was lots. However, it was nothing on Neil Young at The O2. Now that fellah can play loud.
