For those concerned that the suc­cess of Janelle Monae’s de­but al­bum, The Archan­droid, was a mu­si­cal fluke, her set at Dublin’s Tri­pod on Wed­nes­day will have al­layed any such fears. There were bal­loons fall­ing from the ceil­ing; there was Monae, climb­ing into the size­able-de­spite-ad­verse-weather-con­di­tions crowd be­fore ask­ing them all to crouch down at her feet (fig­u­ra­tively if not lit­er­ally); there was a danc­ing nun; there was a danc­ing an­gel; there were highs – oh, such highs – but you can be as­sured there wasn’t a low in sight. Please, Ms Monae, can we have some more? Words: Rose­mary MacCabe. Pho­to­graph: Brenda Fitzsi­mons
