Delorentos Winners choice

I was a judge at this year’s Choice Prize, the eighth installment of the award for Irish album of the year. As you’ve probably heard, Delorentos took home the gong for Little Sparks, their third album. Installed as favourite from the outset, I don’t think it was a surprise to many that they took it home. I’ll write more about the Choice and my role on Monday, but for now enjoy pictures from the live ceremony, most of which I missed – the judges only got to the venue at around 10, when only Delorentos and Cast of Cheers were left to play. (Two Door Cinema Club were the only nominees who couldn’t make it on the night.) Brid O’Donovan was at Vicar Street from the start of the night right to the very end and captured all the bands who played. My favourite picture is Steve Windings’ hat taking over his head.
