Ah bless, it’s another Villagers gig. My sixth this year I think. Check out the bass player, yum. End.

It really was such a beautiful experience. The crowd was reverent and Conor, so humble. An intimate invite only gig in the Workmans Club, Dublin.
Never fails to be one of the greatest weekends of the year. Nice bit of sunshine and many a secret performance. As always, these images are for sale in lovely big prints or electronically. I also have many more to choose from so drop me a line if you fancy.
Peace and Fucking,
Now… where do I start? Muddy fields and great craic (well, as long as you were safe within the confines of the backstage area where I hid most of the weekend!).
Bands I shot:
Eliza Doolittle, CODES, Vampire Weekend, Stereophonics, Tinie Tempah, Jay Z, Villagers, Wallis Bird, Arcade Fire, 2 Door Cinema Club, Chapel Club, Rise Against, Florence and the Machine, Dirty Projectors, The Drums, Bombay Bicycle Club, Muse, Kate Nash, The Middle East, We Are Scienctists, Paulo Nutini, Delphic.
Plenty more variations of each band, just ask to see more! ruth(at)gmail.com

Hard Working Class Hero’s is a 3 day music showcase for unsigned Irish bands. A bloody great idea but a bit disappointing this year.
No big surprises. Adebisi Shank were by far the best band of the weekend. Followed by Funeral Suits, Villagers, We Cut Corners, Robotnik and Kill Krinkle Club. Honorable mentions to Kyon, Yes Cadets, Sweet Jane and Tiny Magentic Pets and Heritage Centre.
I dunno, maybe im gettin jaded with Irish music, or just extra fussy as i’m exposed to so much of it first hand. Or maybe there really isn’t a lot of exciting tunes happening here right now… have they all emigrated?
All i can say is Thank Fuck for Adebisi Shank… if it wasn’t for them, the weekend would have been a wash.
oh and as for the Photography Exhibition…. best not mention the war.
