Looking forward to playing this as ive only seen 3 of the other acts. If the Trip Fontane boys are as on form as they were when played with them in Derry for the electric mainline show, people will be in for a treat.
Again not sure what the running order is for LL but i think we are on before 10 as Deci has to go DJ.
Are the set times staggered to allow movement between rooms for different acts? Anyone know?
8.30-9.00 The Jane Bradfords (The Limelight)
8.45-9.15 John Darcy (Katy Daly's)
9.15-9.45 Splitscreen (The Limelight)
9.30-10.00 Trip Fontane (Katy Daly's)
10.00-10.30 Paddy McKeown (The Limelight)
10.15-10.45 Cutaways (Katy Daly's)
10.45-11.15 Stagger Lee (The Limelight)
11.00-11.30 Patiosounds (Katy Daly's)
11.30-12.00 The Black Tokens (The Limelight)
no idea if it was a "competition" or not.
it wasn't mentioned at any stage that i heard of.
one of the best sets of the night was from cutaways.
people seemed to be impressed by the songwriting charm of john d'arcy.
kowalski filled in at the 11th hour for trip fontaine and played some great sounding new tunes.
i reckon a lot of the limelight performances were hampered by the sound which wasn't as good as it was in katy's.
kowalski were class,and i agree,the sound in katy's was far better,john Darcy went down really well to.In the Limelight the sound is always hit or miss,thought the Black Tokens were the best band on the night in there,good energy,different line up from i last seen them,but a vast improvement.Enjoyed the jane bradfords also,real good sound they have going on.Pity it stopped so early though :x
I personally had a stinker of a gig cos I was in cold flu-sweats halfway through and my voice was goin... I also kicked my pint over a power adapter at one stage and was surprised I didn't cause a building black out.
"Say you want more" is probably one of my favourite songs by a local band so it is. Bit miffed that i couldn't stick around for the evening and that it was such an early start, but someone has to kick it off. Enjoyed what i briefly heard of John D'Arcy.
I don't think anyone "wins" at this. Its a showcase like, not a BOTB.
