Sunday night was a busy one for the gig-going public in Dublin with three quality shows on offer. In Whelan’s, the double headliner of Passion Pit and Hockey were showcasing their wares to an excited audience with Hockey winning out on performance (though both bands suggested they were on the cusp of something greater), Amadou and Miriam treated a Vicar Street audience to the elegant songs from their latest album Welcome to Mali. Franz Ferdinand in the meantime, were rocking the Olympia with reports back suggesting that the band know exactly how to please a crowd with a mix of tunes from the new album Tonight and their older hits. James Goulden took some visual evidence so you can see how it all went down.
Can someone explan the “Terry Say Relax” fan sign?
