    Checked the website earlier, it said tickets available at the door. Has that changed?

    Yep, saw that myself. Has since changed.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,911 ✭✭✭bradlente


    The doors on the site say 7.30-11 and the time on my ticket is 8.Never been in there before but I imagine the start times close enough to 8,Maybe 8.30?Just a guess though.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,850 ✭✭✭RayCon


    7.30pm - 11pm is a bit vague alright ... planning on getting there about 8.30pm myself - should be a safe bet


  • Registered Users Posts: 19,602 ✭✭✭✭Ol' Donie

    B*llocks.

    Thought i'd be out of the country today, gambled they'd still be available if I ended up not going.

    F*ck it, anyway.

    Sorry to hear that .... but t'was a good gig. Lots of shredding and humour, Marco doing his "Animal" impression, squeaky toys and rubber chickens. That was before each of the guys sank a pint of Guinness between songs. We also learned the stories behind tracks such as "Ohhhh Noooo" and "Gaping Head Wound". :eek:

    They call it the Loft, but it's actually a Shed. I don't think it actually has acoustics e.g. half of Bryan's bass notes were booming, the other half went through the roof and out.

    I thought the sound was alright some of that probably comes down to the musicianship of the three though.
