First Fortnight 2012 part two

Le Galaxie at the Button Factory

#2 I will say this for the organisers of First Fortnight – for their big Button Factory gig, they definitely go for an eclectic mix of acts! Cashier No 9 were on too early for me, and I only made it in time for Royseven and Le Galaxie. I reckon I’d find it difficult to think of two more disparate acts!

While Royseven are brilliant at what they do – radio friendly, unbelievably catchy pop – I was disappointed by the similarity of their set to the set I’d already seen them do at Sea Sessions and the Academy in 2011. There was some sense of going through the motions, right down to the flag bearing, but I may be being too critical.

I’ve a huge soft spot for Le Galaxie and they are rapidly becoming a staple for me – a guaranteed night of dancing led by their own exuberant on stage antics. Catch these guys live if you get the chance.

# 24 – There were two trips to the Academy in November – the first one for Royseven supported by Bipolar Empire. This was my second time seeing Royseven and third time seeing Bipolar Empire. Royseven were clinically good, but had a much less exciting atmosphere than when I had seen them in Sea Sessions, while Bipolar Empire were impressive as usual!

#13 contd. – I’m disappointed not to be making 2012 my third year in a row at Sea Sessions, but a wedding commitment has meant I won’t be making the trip up to Donegal this year. 😦
