bank holiday fun

bank holiday weekends in dublin are always crazy busy when it comes to gigs. this upcoming october bank holiday (sunday 24) is no different, with a rake of big names flocking to different venues across the city on the sunday night. which one you choose will depend as much on a combination of who you’re going with and where it is (and consequently how much it is) as who is playing.

for example, much as i’d love to see laidback luke (he was a lot of fun at pukkelpop this year), i’d be more inclined to walk 10 minutes to the twisted pepper to see moodymann and optimo. ultimately, it doesn’t matter what i would do, as i’ll be staying in and getting some sleep ahead of my 9am start the next morning… hurrah. that said, i’m pretty excited about seeing trentemøller live again, his set at (again) pukkelpop in 2007 was one of the best i’ve ever seen, and a saturday night show in tripod should be just dandy.

right from the start

i haven’t really been impressed with mstrkrft‘s recent output. apart from vuvuvu, and maybe bounce when i’m in a particular kind of mood, nothing on fist of god really grabbed me. but laidback luke can pretty much do no wrong. it’s huge, the pianos are stretched to pieces, the percussion is suitably insane and, well, it’s laidback luke! of course it’s awesome.
