Grave Lanterns Live At the Triskel. Picture: Brid O’Donovan

It was Record Store Day on Saturday, April 20. Plugd was buzzing from 10am right throughout the day. There was such a cool atmosphere around the Triskel Arts Centre. From 6.30pm in the TDC room, four acts played. I missed Rory Francis O’Brien, who were supposed to be great. Bah. Elllll played some mesmerising and atmospheric music, field recordings which allow the mind to wander to places you didn’t think it would venture. Morning Veils played their first gig as a three piece, with the vocals of Elaine from Altered Hours shining through as always. Headlining were Grave Lanterns, showcasing more energy than the crowd put together. Featuring members of Altered Hours (Cathal), the now defunct Terror Pop and Dan Walsh (who’s in loads of bands), they play a heady mix of garage-rock/pop that sounds like the early Horrors stuff. You’ll next catch them live supporting Purling Hiss in the Pavilion on Sunday, May 19, a gig you simply CANNOT MISS!. All pictures after the jump by Brid O’Donovan.
