Gigs coming up


#2767

It seems that the Gloaming are the band for the middle aged solicittors and accountants and the likes of Ireland. A bit of culture.

Except me* of course - I’m great.

*these days


#2768

Cow shit on wellies yes, but no dog shit on the floor.


#2769

Out in Whelan’s tonight supporting live music. Lot of lads on here would only go to big name stuff/events.


#2770

Got tickets there for the nephew for Post Malone for his birthday. Queued from 7.45 to 9.45 to get them from a Ticketmaster kiosk. I was about 100th in the queue. They were sold out online in 4 minutes.


#2771

I had to google him there … a white rapper… is he the next Eminem?


#2772

Well played.

I logged in at 9 but there was none left :confounded:


#2773

I was wondering what the queues were.

You are a good uncle.

Bringing my lad to his first gig next year. Twenty one pilots.


#2774

No idea. Never heard of him before yesterday but I am reliably informed that he is “bigger than Drake”.


#2775

:open_mouth:


#2776

I’m actually a legend.


#2777

I heard a lady in the lift saying she Q’ed too. Was it on Henry Street? Is this a new thing Ticketmaster are doing? Can you queue at any outlet?


#2778

Not a new thing.

If you’re queuing at a kiosk you may as well be also be trying online on the phone while you wait


#2779

I was. In fact the sales agent advised us to do that.


#2780

I’m hoping for an extra date to be announced :grimacing:


#2781

I don’t know how you do it


#2782

Jervis. Not a new thing but it’s pot luck. You’ve no idea how many tickets they’ll have. No worse than online in that regard I suppose. Still how bad if you have fuck all better to do with your time.

Margaret Cash was ahead of me in the queue and she managed to get 8 tickets.


#2783

I find The Gloaming particularly underwhelming, despite liking some of them individually.

It seems like it’s phoned in a little for me


#2784

Forensic planning.


#2785

Did you wander off anywhere nice for breakfast?


#2786

I wanted to get Tahini Paste and Anchoor (Mango) powder for a couple of recipes so I went into the Chinese Supermarket at the LUAS Stop.

Then I went to the coffee place at the Liffey St entrance of Armotts and had a flat white and a Portuguese custard tart. The coffee is very good there. After that I took a diversion down Henry Place to gaze at the bullet holes in the wall from 1916. That always moves me.
