I know! I'm very curious to hear if that was a song they had written before all the Spiderman stuff, or if they heard Boy Falls and said "Let's write that song but without Edge's riff."

Carney was overacted. They seemed like poseurs out there and their performance was a bit unsincere. At one point I turned and saw a friend that usually likes the same music as me giving them the thumbs down and I was in total agreement. Waste of time for an opener. Even their outfits (mostly the guitarist) were pure cheese. LA bands are usually crap. Arcade Fire on the other hand brought it and I was rocking out big time. Much rather see someone like BRMC on there instead.

I thought the Queen cover was good and so was I Want You, but cori is right in that it dragged on and on and on. Had they cut out a verse or two, it would've been much more enjoyable
I thoughts as well. Carney were pretty good - better than I had expected after listening to their 30-minute or more soundcheck. There's definitely room for improvement, but they were pretty good. They were much better than The Script, who opened Dublin 3.

As for Interpol, I like their music. However, I've seen them live a couple of times, and they have absolutely zero stage presence. They need to engage the crowd more and show some enthusiasm on stage.

Right from the get go I had to hold a grudge against Carney. Having to wait up on that road for a long time after getting in while they finished sound checking. Grrrrr

You can thank the venue for that wait. They lost the keys to the gate padlocks and had to wait for someone to cut them off. I shit you not

I thought Interpol were ok- not as good as Kaiser Chiefs or Snow Patrol.

however Glasvegas were beyond awful- I'd heard they sounded similiar to White Lies (who I really like), so I thought they'd be worth seeing

I should have been suspicious when my brother went for the longest toilet break in history at Croke Park- just as they came on stage.......45 mind numbing minutes later the misery ended- it's rare that I've seen anyone come across as such a bunch of tossers as they did

What you just said about Crapvegas is very true.

Only saw Snow Patrol. They did their job well, and were a good warm up act.

Do you mean this song?
‪"Godspeed" - Carney @ Bowery Ballroom‬‏ - YouTube

If yes, then it's a tricky call. It is from their latest album (2011), but they've been performing it since end 2008/beginning 2009. A quick check on Youtube will reveal that.

Of course, we know the riff/song from the 2006 Rick Rubin sessions and I'm sure Bono/Edge had finished it as one of the first songs for the musical to present.

So it's very likely they were "inspired" by it.

I only had to hear the first 3-4 notes to know that yes, that is the song. Ha.
