And So I Watch You From Afar – Instore at Tower Records, Dublin, April 30th 2011


There was a fair smattering of people to see And So I Watch You From Afar playing instore early on a Saturday afternoon. This band radiates excitement. They powered through mainly tracks from just released new album Gangs, tracks like BEAUTIFULUNIVERSEMASTERCHAMPION and Search:Party:Animal were powered through with some serious volume.

They played a couple of older tracks such as the joyous D is for Django the Bastard. Watching them play this song is quite a sight to behold. Simply, it’s 4 guys going absolutely nuts and tearing it up with this song. They didn’t forget their first album, playing A Little Bit of Solidarity Goes A Long Way.

Would have loved to have seen them play for real at the Button Factory later but life got in the way. Still ASIWYFA are becoming a seriously big deal, and seeing them for free on a Saturday afternoon was a real treat.
