The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - Music -

Right: Brook­lyn-based indie rock­ers The Na­tional started to get the at­ten­tion they de­served with the May re­lease of their fourth album Boxer, and in Novem­ber shook the rafters of Dublin’s Olympia with a set that will for­ever be re­mem­bered by those lucky enough to have been there. Far right: Cal­i­for­nia’s finest Cold War Kids breezed into town in April and un­leashed a set of un­bri­dled en­ergy to a packed Am­bas­sador in Dublin. Pho­to­graph: Aidan Craw­ley

Right: It was bi­ble meet­ing meets cir­cus ex­trav­a­ganza in late Oc­to­ber as Ar­cade Fire stormed their way through two gigs un­der the big top in Dublin’s Phoenix Park. Pho­to­graph: Pa­trick O’Leary

Far left: At Elec­tric Pic­nic, the tents were ev­ery­where, of course, but for once last sum­mer, flip-flops out­num­bered wellies. Pho­to­graph: Kate Ger­aghty Left: For five days in July, REM took to the stage of Dublin's Olympia, turn­ing in stun­ning show­case per­for­mances of songs from their long-awaited new album, due for re­lease early next year.

Far right: Dublin’s Craw­daddy de­scended into may­hem in early Novem­ber as the charm­ingly de­mented Tim Har­ring­ton and his New York band Les Savy Fav de­liv­ered a blis­ter­ing show of post-punk an­thems. Pho­to­graph: Dara Mac Dó­naill

Far left: Cal­i­for­nian folk harpist Joanna New­som and her band ar­rived in Dublin in April and gave a spell­bind­ing per­for­mance to a packed Olympia. Pho­to­graph: Aidan Craw­ley

Left: One of the many high­lights of Septem­ber’s Elec­tric Pic­nic was a joy­ous, en­er­getic 90 min­utes of bliss, cour­tesy of the leg­end of wit and wig­gle, Jarvis Cocker. Pho­to­graph: Pa­trick O’Leary
