    Today I bought my first concert ticket in what seems like an eternity. Drab City playing the Grand Social next March. I'd never even heard of them until I read a tweet about them today. I listened to a few songs, thought they sounded a *tiny* bit like Portishead and took the plunge. It felt great!


    Anybody else bought any tickets recently?

    They've been recommended to me a few times.
    Are they worth checking out and where would a fella start?

    They only have one album and two eps... Start there, great band

    Yeah, bought one for Rolling blackouts coastal fever in March and got one for the rescheduled Pixies gig in the Iveagh Gardens next Summer. It does indeed feel good.

    I've only gotten into them myself in recent months but think they're great. Caught a couple of their live streams on facebook so cant wait to see them live now. They look like great craic too :D

    Serious craic live. They used to be red enemy the metal band so their crowd is intense. 😂

    so i had a listen - very good - i've seen them busking a few times and i'd say their shows are fairly lively affairs

    But (gloves off) best band in the country is a bit of a stretch....

    I bought the ticket with a high expectation it will be deferred till next year.

    Best band in the country, not even close. They have adopted a sound that will limit their progression as a band and are almost a sort of novelty act. Red enemy were probably better.

    nothing in a while but searching for an Elton John ticket for one of the 3arena in Dec 2020 (possibly get moved to 2021)

    Nothing coming up only the odd 2nd hand ticket and im not paying for that. Hopefully ill pick a ticket at some stage (Tickets always appear closer to the date)

    Exit Festival in Serbia this August, yup yup.


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,504 ✭✭✭Penfailed


    I was very close to buying a few tickets yesterday. I'm going to wait until the end of the month and the next payday.

    Gigs '24 - Ben Ottewell and Ian Ball (Gomez), The Jesus & Mary Chain, The Smashing Pumpkins/Weezer, Pearl Jam, Green Day, Stendhal Festival, Forest Fest, Electric Picnic, Ride, PJ Harvey, Pixies, Public Service Broadcasting, Therapy?, IDLES(x2)

    Bought tickets yesterday for a gig in the button factory early November . 550 capacity , hoping it will go ahead . I imagine they can bring it down to 500 if that is the limit for indoor gigs before christmas


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,820 ✭✭✭grames_bond


    I bought tickets to Enuff Z'Nuff in the grand social in November.

    I'd say they only have about 14 tickets sold as no one has ever heard of them (sacrilege) so hopefully it'll be ok to go ahead!


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,255 ✭✭✭Shlippery


    Bought for Ludovico's rescheduled gig in November...not sure how that's going to pan out.


  • Registered Users Posts: 37,964 ✭✭✭✭PTH2009


    finally got a ticket for Elton John

    quite a long long wait for the 3rd Dec 2021 :pac::pac::pac: but at least its got and the ticket cost is sorted. Worse comes to worse if its cancelled it will be refunded. PG the world and myself will be in good health by then

    Never done it myself but remember seeing crowds freezing their bollocks off all night for the big shows

    ah, that's a pity. I would buy often from the Stephen's Green booth to avoid the extra online fees.
