Didn’t expect that gig to be as good as it was. Loved it.
No searches on the way in probably due to the bad weather they said fuck it let em in. No stress bringing in the booze. Genius move aswell taking it into the 2 tents. For me the grounds took on a strange vibe with most of the structures and the main stage from the Forbidden fruit fest half disassembled. Like an ancient fairground or sorts.
Spiritualized were great. New members in full swing and more strobes than usual…no complaints there. Patti Smith was something else. Im pretty much take her or leave her, however, her set was incredible. No backdrop visuals and the most basic of lights gave the feeling of a gig back in time. She has an amazing power about her. Favorite moment…when she sang Jesus Christ died for our sins…(s then gobbed on the stage) and recited…but not mine!
. Hard to believe shes hittn 70. There an immense power about that woman. A few velvets songs thrown in aswell which went down a treat.
Despite the hellish weather that thankfully backed off, it was a cracking evening. All topped off with creamy pints in that lovely little hideaway behind Kilmainham the Royal Oak pub.http://www.setlist.fm/setlist/patti-smi ... 9f568.html
