The Tallest Man On Earth

4 06 2011

A lying bastard he may be (he’s no more that 5’6″, I reckon), but Kristian is a fine entertainer. So good in fact that he moved a couple in the front row to spend the entire first three songs liplocked. It was only himself and the guitar, strutting around the stage for the most part of the night, which could have been a disaster, visually, had he not been so energetic. Anyway, he was bopping away and here are some of the pictures I gotted:

 

Oh and here’s his sister. She was in the support band, but I didn’t catch their name, but they were good. I like this shot too!

 





Choice Muisc Awards (Part Two – mostly Adebisi and Cast of Cheers)

After trawling through the other 7.9gbs of photos, I found some others I quite like. Havn’t got around to them all yet, but there a-coming!

Cast of Cheers:

Maykay, Fight Like Apes:

 

Adebisi Shank:

 

 





Choice Music Award

4 03 2011

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.)





Christmas Cheer!

25 12 2010

What better way to celebrate Christmas than with a nomination for Music Photographer of the year? Yes indeedy, I’ve made the long-list for The Digital Socket Awards’ Best Music Photography category. It’s a bgreat honor to be nominated amongst some truly superb photographers and I can’t wait to see the shortlist. (My money is on either James Goulden or Ramsey Cardey, if you’re asking.)

To celebrate this achievement, and as a thanks to the staff of State.ie, Goldenplec.com and everyone else who helped me over the past year, I present the best of my 2010. Happy Christmas all.

Sean

Lower Dens, Vicar Street, 22/11/2010

23 11 2010

While this post should be called ‘Beach House, Vicar Street’, lack of lights during their performance meant that I have feck all pictures of worth for this site. That said, support act Lower Dens were bathed in a lovely abundance of light. I only wish I’d paid more attention to them and taken more pictures. Ah well.

 

And here’s the Beach House one’s for comparison:
