Only 1 price category so no clues in that regard
Lovely award winning venue, have seen a good few acts in there, there is a mix of sitting and standing.

Many thanks.

That and a Rascals brewery tour will be an excellent Saturday evening.

I see they're currently touring A Happy Pocket and Weightlifting in the US - so we can but hope !
Amen to that ( as one atheist to another !) the Workmans gig was superb. My favourite band, as you might guess from my username ! I'd be hopeful of them playing here early next year, they've hinted at European dates on their facebook page. Can't see it this year though. Their American tour lasts until November, and I'd imagine they'll take a break then.

Sad to see recently that they've lost a bundle on their pledge funded last album/live DVD (If you haven't got the live DVD you really should if your a fan) when the company went bust. Remarkable that bands like them can even manage to keep going. Long may they do so.

Yeah, saw a msg from them recently alluding to having lost a packet via the pledge fund company collapse - have the "live" recording ordered as I've always enjoyed their 'out-takes' stuff (Fez, On A B Road, Zebra of the Family, plus the Radio Session CDs they were selling at the Workmen's gig)

Tickets cost €69 and go on sale at 10am on Tuesday, February 26.
Show was on last night, so that is what it's like seeing a gig where musicians are enjoying themselves and encouraging each other to take centre stage.

Yes,very enjoyable show .
I wouldn't be the biggest fan of that type of music myself but technically I couldn't fault the show.
Eddi Reader singing Patience of Angels was the highlight for me,spellbinding.
