Default Did anyone see Lisa play at the Electric Picnic?

I missed it and only read about her playing on Jim Caroll's blog this morning ...

(8) I saw a rake of Irish acts on Sunday morning. Fight Like Apes suffered from appalling sound and looked a little over-awed by the big stage and crowd. Halves have oodles and oodles of lovely quiet-loud-quiet moments. Si Schroeder is sounding more and more cocky and confident with every extra gig he does. The Flaws have been through the wringer already with record label woes but they’ve plenty of sturdy power-punk songs which would sound good on your radio. But the real Irish winner on Sunday was Lisa Hannigan. Now unshackled from Damien Rice, her short, breezy and assured set on the Body & Soul stage was enough to make you realise where the real star-power was in that duo. Backed by a band who knew when to step back as well as step up, Hannigan’s songs are a promising combination of new-school folk and old-school pop. The next stage for her will be an album in early 2008.
Carroll knows his stuff so it's a good sign if he likes her. Tomo was playing drums with her.
One day we will die and our ashes will fly from the aeroplane over the sea,
but for now we are young let us lay in the sun and count every beautiful thing we can see
