No room for homegrown acts I’m afraid as this week sees three giants from the US cross the Atlantic:
The National, Olympia Theatre Dublin, Thursday and Friday, sold out
These stylish New Yorkers always put on a show and will be blasting some of the great tunes that feature on their brilliant 2010 album High Violet.
Janelle Monae, Tripod Dublin, Wednesday, €28/€32
Possibly the biggest success story of 2010, Ms. Monae brings her classy brand of soul-R&B/pop to the Tripod. No doubt many of those fortunate to catch her at EP’10 will be in attendance.
Interpol, Olympia Dublin, Monday and Tuesday, sold out
Mixed reviews of Interpol’s latest album, but nothing can deny the quality of what has gone before.
