noah and the whale at the academy, dublin, ireland. lisa and i managed to smile our way into VIP, and the show was incredible. they didn’t play my favorite song, but they did play a hell of a lot of old stuff which was awesome. the crowd begged for “mary” and they obliged, despite having never played it together with their new drummer and forgetting some of the lyrics… it was sweet. not to mention, i’ll take a fiddle player in a suit any day.
