    I have just seen Glen Hansard in the Everyman. It'll be the last Frames/Hansard gig i ever go to. Mark Geary who was supporting was appalling. While Glen is a pretty talented musician he seems to have gotten big-headed recently, of course all the Glen-ites loved his unwitty banter.

    Gigwise, Damien Dempsey in the Lobby on Monday, September 16, 2002. Gemma Hayes in the Triskel is worth seeing.

    Other than that there isn't much going on here this month

    You should have heard the diaharetic spewage of a Pixies cover that Glen dragged out. It was a travesty

    Some of his stories were complete BS too, one of them was about how when he was a kid he used to climb electrical pylons (yes the big 50ft thingys). Apparently one day him and his friends could see this guy on top of the roof of a block of flats while on the pylon. They shouted at him to jump and he did. They went over to the body and it turned out to be one of his friends father.

    He also decided to take a **** midway through the gig

    just to let ye know i am the supervisor of the savoy nightclub so if ye would like any information about upcoming gigs dont hesitate to pm me and i can do my best to get ye news of gigs before the general public.

    As ye may know paul oakenfold is playin in cork on the 21st of september but what the heineken posters fail to say is that the gig is in fact in the savoy
    it is 30 yoyos a ticket and doors are at 9pm

    but what the posters also leave out is that they are holding a dj competition in the bodega on the 19th of september to decide the winner of the thirst dj competiotion and who will play as a warm up to oakenfold this event will be alot cheaper and u get alot of djs plus a 30min set from oakenfodl himself.

    Oh ya, a decent gig thats coming up, The Frames, playing the Opera House on new Years Eve, €25.

    The last gig in the Everyman was brilliant so I was told.

    the Rednecks have been accepted to play the SXSW festival in the US (texas) and it was originally supposed to take place between the 23rd-27th of March. This has now been moved to the 12-16th of March so cork date (scheduled for the 13th march) will be moved, probably to the week before but as soon as I get exact new date off the promoter I'll post it here.


  • Registered Users Posts: 409 ✭✭ Jim Comic


    Redneck Manifesto now play the Half Moon Theatre on the 9th of March (not the 13th as originally scheduled).

    The date has been rescheduled coz they are now playing America on the 13th.

    The re-scheduled date is now a Sunday afternoon show and will be an all ages gig.
