Jonathan Coulton live in Dublin

Jonathan Coulton returned to Europe. Last Saturday he played a fantastic concert at the Academy 2 in Dublin, Ireland. I had a splendid time along with 200 Irish people. The audience sang along like there was no tomorrow. We even got an unplanned encore. There just wasn’t a weak moment in the whole show. I wish I could indulge in all the little details and communicate better the awesomeness of JoCo. But I really don’t know where to begin and where to end and how to describe the simple fact that I thoroughly enjoyed myself. Here’s the setlist:

  1. Betty and Me
  2. Ikea
  3. Shop Vac
  4. Code Monkey
  5. Better
  6. Tom Cruise Crazy
  7. Blue Sunny Day

  10. Creepy Doll
  11. Mr. Fancy Pants

    […] JoCo was his usual fantastic self, and when Paul and Storm accompanied him they soldiered manfully through despite the lack of shakers or tambourines. (The shakers, I believe, were in their checked luggage which had been misdirected somewhere along the way.) He played the usual expected favourites, and concluded with a completely satisfactory encore. Which was followed by an unprecedented but fantastic second encore (A Talk With George). You can find the entire setlist here. […]
