Life Has Surface Noise

Next up might be a little bit of a cheat in terms of counting it as a gig. Life has Surface Noise was on in Project Arts as part of the Fringe Fest and was a sneaky peak into what music means to other people – and a nice reassurance that I amn’t the only person with a crazy obsession with music!

Siobhan Kane, Adrian Crowley, Donal Lunny, Peter Toomey and Darragh O’Halloran all gave us some insight into their relationship with music. Stories interspersed with tunes from Adrian Crowley and Donal Lunny – such a charming night.

It wasn’t the setting to take pics, so this one is just for me and my memories!

The 2012 Choice Music Prize was back to its proper home in Vicar Street and the nominees meant that those of us in attendance really got to see some of the best live acts around at the moment. While some were acts that I had seen before (some even at previous Choice Music Prizes!), some were ones I’ve been wanting to see for ages – Damien Dempsey – or more recently – Windings.

Delorentos went on to be well-deserved winners, and their emotional acceptance speech summed up just what this prize means to the acts themselves.
