Carpet burns on my knees, two dead batteries, more caffeine ingested than I care to admit and 8gbs of photos. That was the Choice Music Awards for me this year. Two Door Cinema Club took the gong in the end (and gave the 10k prize fund to charity. Nice.), but that was almost immaterial. The Irish Music Scene is f*cking fantastic these days. Adebisi Shank were stomper, James Vincent McMorrow brought the drunk crowd to a silence, Fight Like Apes seemed to win over even Morrissey (Yeah, I know – he’s definitely following me) and Cathy Davey is like a cure for anything.
Anyway, here’s the pictures you were after I take it. There’ll be more from Adebisi and The Cast of Cheers in the coming days, but make do with this batch til then.
(Imelda May wasn’t there, she was in Australia or something, so you won’t find her here. Oh, and if you don’t know who’s who, just leave your mouse hover over a picture for a second and bingo-bango it’ll tell you. Technology, eh? Magics.)
