moddi – a northanlight in dublin

pål moddi knutsen or as we all know him as moddi had been visiting dublin and had been playing in the whelans venue on 10th aprli. he already caught our attention last month with his second album and we though did not know that we will be in luck to see him live on stage.
when he came on stage made you feel if you are sitting with him just in his house and listen to his talks and music. though he had been not travelling with his band it made it a tick more cosier and personal where he was sharing his thoughts and music with us. we have to thank him for spoiling us that night:

foals – coming to dublin and rocked twice the sold out academy

foals had been absence from dublin for a little while now, but with their new album “holy fire” in their pockets they came to dublin to play two sold out nights in the academy. they did not disapoint their fans and had played their classic songs and new songs, lucky enough for us we had the chance to catch ‘milk and black spiders’ live version which had not been played yet on stage live before. after the gig the fans had been standing around still in shock and disbelieve that the night was over. but it is sure that ‘foals’ are back and will be rocking few festivals around europe this summer which should not be missed.

bloc party – dubliners screaming for more

bloc party had been back in dublin (ireland) for two nights, they have been given all and more on tuesday (12.02.2013) night in the olympia theatre. from the kick start with ‘so he begins to lie’ from their new album four right through to the end mixing up the deck with their all time favorites, closing with ‘helicopter’, they have been pushing hard and the absence of each other over the years just fused them together on stage.
the fans came and bloc party have delivered well over the norm and what you would have expected by mashing all four albums into a massive package where you are just asking for more though your ears are going already deaf. if you have the chance to see them on their current tour you will definitely not be disappointing. a great treat was as well to listen into their brand new full of energy packed with in your face attitude song ‘ratchet’.
if you did not had the chance to have seen them in dublin over this two days check out the playlist from tuesday:
