The Erics


State Lights

Emerging from a First Fortnight haze for The Erics took a bit of doing, but was well worth it. Getting to see openers State Lights again, who I had seen at the First Fortnight Big Gig, was a real treat – they are an impressive act who I’d expect to be seeing higher up the bill before the year is out. Further up the bill were Daithi, who is always brilliant, and headliners The Riptide Movement, impressive as always. The night was rounded out by Le Galaxie doing a DJ set, who unfortunately were on a little late for a school night and played to a largely empty venue. An eclectic mix of acts but a fun night!

The Erics


If I’m honest, I probably shouldn’t have been at the Erics. Getting over a chest infection is never the best scenario for getting the best out of a gig – freezing, knackered and hacking up a lung, I felt like I should apologise to those standing around me for the added sound effects!


But that aside, had managed to put together a great line-up for their awards night, The Erics, with some of the best acts around at the moment. Cave Ghosts and Gavin James opened up the night, followed by O Emperor (who I had been dying to see again since their new album came out) and stars of the show, Le Galaxie. It was a night definitely worth staying out past my bedtime for!
