Weekly Watch

My 3 gigs to catch round the island this week:

Foals, Olympia Dublin, tonight, €23.50

Holy Fuck, Whelans Dublin, Friday 19th, €18

C!ties Jogging & Guilty Optics, Dolans Limerick, Sunday 21st 6pm, free

Cover: Foals Cover Swedish House Mafia – One

For those of you who didn’t love the original tune which could  be heard blaring from boy racers the breadth of the country try the Foals version. It actually retains a predominantly dancy sound but with some hi-hat smacking thrown in with the vocals of Yannis Philippakis.

Video: Foals – Blue Blood

Blue Blood is the latest single to be taken from the magnificent 2010 album Total Life Forever. Chris Sweeney’s video pits a shy looking school kid in a hall singing the tune to a bemused audience, what it lacks it originality (lets face it impressive miming by someone miles apart from the singer in appearance has been done to death) it makes up for in engaging execution.
