I was lucky enough to see Editors playing Indiependence – if I’m honest, I hadn’t really rated them until I saw them, and it was just one of those amazing moments of live music that come just once in a while and take you so much by surprise that there’s always a risk that seeing them again just won’t live up. And in the case of Editors, unfortunately, it was true. Their show was brilliant and they ploughed through a fast paced set with barely time to draw breath. But for all its brilliance, it just didn’t quite live up to that first time seeing them under the stars in a field in Mitchelstown.
But the support act made up for the mild disappointment (wrong word – the gig was great, just not as great as I’d hoped) – Tvvins are insanely good. Made up of part Adebisi Shank, part Cast of Cheers, their set was a revelation. Ones to watch in 2014 I reckon.
