Raced into the Olympia last night to see Baroness. I got to my poxy seat as their first song started. They are very good. Played mostly songs from Gold and Grey. Songs sounded better live because, lets face it, the album sounds shite. The bass was still too boomy and they could do with laying off the phasers every now and then. It was all over by 8.30pm. Still glad I went.
Hung around for a little bit considering staying for Volbeat but said fuck it and went home, though not before I met John from Baroness on the street and had a quick chat and a hand shake.
Back to Navan for a pint, then home before anyone had gone to bed. Result.
Ah feck I’d like to see Baroness.
Completely forgot about it but was in bed by 9pm anyway

I had a free ticket for Volbeat/Baroness/Danko Jones. But only wanted to see Danko Jones and wouldnt have got there until they finished. Didn't bother in the end.

Comrade Hat / Captain A

Granted I was the support act but due to the occasion I actually got pretty hammered before the show and had a great time altogether. Comrade Hat with trio is unreal. I think to a person who listens to a load of crappy radio they'd probably call him jazz but there is way more than that going on.

Salthouse Sessions: Berrill / O'Loclainn / Walsh

This was a wonderful packed gig and the trio really went head to head with audience instead of slipping into dinner jazz mode.


Anna Mullarkey & Matthew Berrill

This was in a nightclub and was essentially a kindof expanded version on Anna's electro set with real life piano and sax. Savage musician.

Fixity

Loved this altogether - Four piece incarnation of fixity in a small venue. I suspect they'd be a little more intense in a non seated setup but were still great.

We watched the Fortnite end of season 10 event. I don’t know what they’re up to, but it’s funny.

The twilight sad in the button factory. Such an intense singer. Thought they were superb. No smell of vomit either on the balcony anymore which was nice!

Chromatics at Vicar Street last night. So beautiful and brilliant, and the covers of I'm on Fire and Running Up That Hill were :love: , and I love their new record. And people were quite well-behaved(y)
Argh I wanted to go to that. I miss everything nowadays

I thought it was in a couple of days, I was toying with the idea of going. Oh well!
