I was not expecting this, but it may well be the only concert to top Ryan Adams and the Cardinals this year. Randy Newman has a new album out, Harps and Angels, and once again it’s excellent. The man is so consistent. You may mostly know him for doing theme tunes from Toy Story and the like, but the man is so much more than that. The album Faust is a work of genius, as are songs ‘Short People’ and ‘Political Science’.
He plays Vicar Street November 3rd, with tickets at €59.80. T go on sale tomorrow (Monday).
