    The 3rd annual Christmas Do takes place on Thursday, 23rd December in Crawdaddy. It’s going to run from 8pm-2.30am, and admission is €10, incl. entry to the raffle.

    This year, all proceeds will be donated to Aware.

    Acts confirmed so far to play on the night are:

    - The Large Corporation
    - Niall Byrne
    - Delorentos
    - Northstation

    - Leagues
    - A&H's Mobile Rock Disco
    + more....

    This lineup is, as always, subject to change.

    The Kris Kringle Mixtapes will be making an appearance again this year. To participate, just make a mixtape/cd/minidisk of your favourite tunes. Wrap it up and bring it along to the gig, where you can put it under the Christmas tree & take one out for yourself.

    Raffle prizes include CD’s, gig tickets, books, a Road Records voucher, a mini table football game, a box of jaffa cakes and a tin of USA assorted biscuits, as is the tradition.


    About Aware
    Aware is a voluntary organization formed in 1985 by a group of interested patients, relatives and mental health professionals, whose aims are to assist that section of the population who are directly affected by depression.

    ::: Niall Byrne :::
    One man and his telecaster. Once one third of Flexihead & Jackbeast, and now one fifth of The Redneck Manifesto, Niall Byrne makes a rare solo appearance. Little is known of Niall's solo outings other than that he allegedly is the owner of an angelic voice. This should come as some surprise to fans of the Rednecks pummeling instrumentals. A rare and unexpected treat.

    ::: The Large Corporation :::
    The Dudley Corporation and Large Mound have long wrestled over the title of finest band in Ireland. With a number of critically lauded albums and hysterically attended gigs between them its been a long and tortuous, mostly for the audience, affair. They even toured Scotland together earlier this year to take the fight onto neutral soil. Bassist and Guitarist Mark Jordan was in the unfortunate position of rocking for both bands and, alas recently found the pressure overwhelming and abandoned both groups to move to foreign lands. What could be done?! Why, the only sensibly stupid enough idea was to amalgamate the two groups and set course for impending disaster. So, for one night only, come see The Large Corporation rock mightily and make holy shows of themselves as they try to overcome the turmoil of whoever was responsible for that name... |

    ::: Northstation :::
    Northstation is Dublin musician Steve Fanagan. Steve began recording as Northstation in 1999, when he provided the soundtrack for a collection of short films. 2001 saw the release of the first Northstation album, ‘plink.plonk’, a collection of songs originally compiled for the din exhibition. This was followed by some live performances. In 2003 Steve began work on the ‘bears’ album, which was released this past July, on compactrisc. Steve currently works as a sound engineer and releases music under several different names.

    ::: Delorentos :::
    Delorentos are a Dublin four piece who play songs about life, love, death and that sort of stuff. Recently compared to The Rapture, Television, and Interpol, they have been described by HotPress as ´blistering engergetic rock´, The Sunday Tribune said ´very good live is quite the understatement´ and various doctors have described them as ´stable´. After a year long absence in which they recorded a mini album and had a mini tour of the states, they return with new songs and a new overdraft. They are currently gearing up for a nationwide tour to support the release of their EP "Senses".

    ::: Leagues O'Toole :::
    Music journalist, broadcaster & Foggy Notions head honcho, Leagues will be bringing along his big bag of reggae, ska, folk, trad, soul, hip-hop & rawk records for some festive fun.

    ::: A&H's Mobile Rock Disco :::
    Mackey and McCabe of the Mound, legends in their own Rock lunchtime. This is the stuff of Rock Legend: two grown men who really should know better and their collection of 'classic' rock 7" records, bringing the night to an air punching, foot on monitor close. Expect 7"'s of classic metal terror, and the odd Weezer track. This could be brilliant.....or it could be Marillion. DEATH TO FALSE METAL.
