Review: Red Bull Bedroom Jam Launch w/ The Minutes...
Review: Red Bull Bedroom Jam Launch w/ The Minutes – Workman’s Club The Minutes It’s been a fair while since The Minutes have taken to the stage in Ireland; they’ve been pretty busy taking over the whole damn world (well, Europe for starters), touring with Flogging Molly and then doing their own headline German tour right off the back of that, but it was good to see the Dublin threesome...
Review: Whelan’s “Ones To Watch” 2012 – Saturday
Review: Whelan’s “Ones To Watch” 2012 – Saturday Though slightly terrified of the “weekend warriors” I knew I would encounter on an uncustomary (for me) Saturday night out, it was back down to Whelan’s for the fourth and final installment of the One’s to Watch series of bands. Proceedings kicked off at what seemed to be the ungodly hour of 8:15, ahem, yes, PM, on Whelans’ main stage (yes, I...
Review: Whelan’s “Ones To Watch” 2012 – Friday
Review: Whelan’s “Ones To Watch” 2012 – Friday Now I know the “Ones to Watch” festival at Whelan’s over the weekend was sponsored by Heineken and Music Maker, but hot damn, with all the Apple paraphernalia scattered around the place on Friday night, Steve Jobs sure would have been proud. The over-riding theme of the night was all things electronica, and that suited me just fine, given that this...
Whelan's *Ones to Watch* 2012 - In Review
Review: Whelan’s “Ones to Watch” 2012 – Thursday Just to clarify, as I write this, I am utterly broken. Over forty of Ireland’s up and coming bands and acts, playing three different stages, in two venues, over four days. To say that it was an overwhelming experience would be a bit of an understatement. I’m shook. But it was a great few days, encompassing a huge variety of musical genres and...

First Fortnight *Therapy Sessions* - In Review
First Fortnight “Therapy Sessions” The Workman’s Club January 6th The “Therapy Sessions”. Apt name, given the propensity of the Irish psyche that insists that no person is to move more than halfway up the room during a gig. Its a weird one, and a trait that was alive and well in the Workman’s on Friday night. Slightly unsettling, but only lasts till a...

Folie à deux: Spies Seasonal Soirée - In Review →
~Spies Seasonal Soiree~ Spies / Squarehead / Girl Band Walking into the Grand Social last wednesday night for the “Spies Seasonal Soiree” felt something more like walking into that scene from “Total Recall”, you know, the bit on Mars where they turn off the oxygen and everyone looks like they’re melting?
