2012 IN PICTURES – MAY

Two football matches and a concert was the story of this month, but they were high profile ones – the Irish Cup Final, and Manchester United at Windsor Park, while also seeing Saint Etienne at Custom House Square.

I also managed to get some graffiti shots.

SAINT ETIENNE – LIVE AT CUSTOM HOUSE SQUARE 10.5.2012

Was at Custom House Square last night to see Saint Etienne perform, as part of the Cathedral Quarter Arts Festival (CQAF)

They are one of those bands that you know more songs of theirs than you think you do. If you were a regular viewer of The Chart Show in the mid-late 90s, you definitely do know more songs than you think you do.

The band are returning with new material for the first time in seven years, and it showed at times, with some technical issues on the sound, and in some cases, Sarah Cracknell forgetting the words on some songs.

It was with some trepidation, by the singer’s own admission, that they previewed some new material. They needn’t have worried, the crowd enjoyed them. One woman inparticular in the front row, who screamed “I LOVE YOU SARAH!!!!” before turning her attentions to Bob Stanley with “I LIKE YOU BOB!!!! I REALLY REALLY LIKE YOU BOB”

As with any band, the biggest hits got the biggest cheers, and the crowd went wild for “You’re In A Bad Way” and “Only Love Can Break Your Heart”

Absolutely loved the live version of “Only Love Can Break Your Heart”

It was a nice vibe in a nice intimate venue but it did feel like it wasn’t as good as I’d expected. Maybe I built up too much expectations going into it?

That said, it was still an enjoyable evening.
