Gigs coming up


#2005

You will surely put us on the guest list?

Is that festival that the national organise on in Cork this weekend or something


#2006

That’s a disappointment mate.


#2007

I’ll record some of it for you if it means that much to you, mate.


#2008

No thanks.


#2009

I dunno, they won’t be my cup of tea either but a few of the hits like Livin On A Prayer or Always would be good in a small venue like that


#2010

I’m getting in free, mate – I haven’t heard any of Bon Iver’s stuff since their second album so i’m not sure how they faring out. Their early stuff was decent.


#2011

I thought only sappy college girls liked Bon iver?


#2012

I couldn’t tell you mate, I even said I’ve not heard of them in a number of years… It should be a great gig tho.


#2013

Why should it?


#2014

Because it’s a secret gig… in an old church, silly. I doubt anything will top it on Irish soil in 2’17.


#2015

Depends on how many yokes you take i suppose.


#2016

How did that gig turn out @ChocolateMice, this new festival looks decent enough for Cork in September.


#2017

Short and sweet – it was two of Bon Iver with two from the National playing a few experimental tracks - only about 40 mins but Bon Iver were playing in the Opera house two hours later…

Yeah good buzz around - I was talking to Cillian Murphy in Triskel who was in town for the festival - he was opening a show in the triskel earlier. But Lot’s of shows spread around town.


#2018

Lovely, Cillian was always a nice fella, brilliant musician as well and hugely into music.


#2019

He was with another mate who still lives local - also into music - Bob I think was his name — they were admiring the art work of local artist Paul McKenna up on the walls — Cork is great.


#2020

That festival has been going for a few years now.

Apparently last night’s Bon Iver show and tonight’s National show are streaming live


#2021

Bob Jackson was in Cillians old band Sons of Mr Green Genes, He wrote the book about the Doctor from Castletownbere who was in the Japanese POW camp.


#2022

It’s getting bigger year on year, I’d have headed down tonight only I’ve a christening to attend early tomorrow.


#2023

I was chatting to Bob for a bit. A sound enough chap…


#2024

you going to this bud? will be savage
