The Villagers are one of the bands I was really looking forward to at the recent Indiependence. I had heard quite a bit of their music and of course I was a fan of The Immediate who I saw in Cyprus Avenue. I was well impressed with the performance and I must try pick up their EP ‘Hollow Kind’. For those of you heading to Electric Picnic, this is one act to catch.
There are a few more photos in the full set.
Cork band Fred were the next band we saw at Indiependence after Dark Room Notes. As always they put on a good show and I heard good stuff about their performance at Cork X Soutwest the day before.
As always, a few more photos in the full set on Flickr.
Dark Room Notes were the next band up at Indiependence after Wallis Bird. I saw DRN play a while back in Cyprus Avenue and have since heard them on the radio where they’re getting some coverage.
A few more photos after the jump…

Wallis Bird was the second act we caught at Indiependence last Sunday. It’s been a while since I saw her in Cyprus Avenue where she plays regularly enough but I was very impressed with her engaging and energetic live act on a bigger stage. I’ll definitely get along to her next gig in Cork which is in Cyprus Avenue on October 18th.
I have a couple of more photos from the gig in the full set on Flickr.
Ham Sandwich made a welcome return to the Indie-Pendence festival following a fine display last year. Their debut album “Carry the Meek” has been out for a while now and is well worth picking up. They’re playing at Electric Picnic today and seem to have a few gigs coming up in September around Ireland. Check out their MySpace for mor info.
More photos in the full set on Flickr. I’m almost done with photos from this festival although I have lingering from last year’s festival so I might dig them out.
