Exit 23, Amnesiacs, The Audiables and Jargon will be competing at The Limelight for a place in All-Ireland Final in Dublin later in the year and the chance of winning a record deal with Blastspace Records.
Having progressed from their various heats, they'll be playing The Limelight along with special guests Six Days Later, Seven Story Weather & The Upgrades, who are launching their new album 'Take A Risk'.
This is an early, all ages gig and doors open at 12.30pm! (:
The Remember Kids & Under Stars & Gutters have also been confirmed as guest bands!
So is this going to be before ALB's slbum launch in the same venue? That'll be a long day!
two album launches and twelve bands in the same day!
fair play to the limelight, hahaha!
The Postbox Theory have also been added to the bill!
10 bands for £4! :D
We're kinda using it as an EP Launch aswell.
So please be nice, and buy an EP! (if you're going) =]
The Postbox Theory, Amnesiacs AND The Audiables? Wow, that's a pretty stellar lineup for not much cash.
The Postbox Theory's EP is pretty amazing, too. I have to say I'm not that much of a fan of the Audiables (great spelling fail :?). But hey, I've been wrong before. The Amnesiacs were meant to play Jamnesty (I still say we should've called it Rock The Human...) last year but things didn't work out; so it'll be good to see them live.
Well looking forward to it! ...and then tearing across town for CQAF. Gigs are like buses, I swear. None for ages, then... :)
The Audiables are real growers. I haven't seen them live but their recordings are pretty great. I can't wait to see TPT live. :D

i'm tearing it to FWW vs ASIWYFA after our set myself too! i've only seen FWW at Belsonic, and i got knocked back from ASIWYFA at Mandela, so i'm telling myself it will make up for it (it really won't! :( )
staying on topic though, i've played with the audiables, jargon and postbox theory before; cracker bands! :D
This one should be a great one,really looking forward to it !Definately shooting on to see the plastic rose,asiwyfa and fww after.
You'd think they'd spell our fuckin name rite on the poster it's The Audiables
Apart from that lookin forward to playin
Bumped, because it's tomorrow!
Anyone thinking of heading over?
I was planning on going but something's sadly come up. :cry:
Mainly because i'm playing. =]
I have to be there at 10.15, i'm gona be half asleep.
[b:99c49c270e]We're on at half 12 so head down early if ya wana see TPT rocking the Limelight!![/b:99c49c270e]
Gonna be there at 12-ish to do some last minute helping. Well, trying to help, not just being an annoyance. Looking forward to it like!
Are there stage times? I might be a little crazy and try and catch a few bands.
Perhaps attendance at this would be a better idea:
Well perhaps, and that's a decent idea...
except the opportunities for all-ages gigs in this place are so few and far between, that I guess we're taking every chance we can get. Not everyone thinks to consider the ethics of being sponsored by big companies, and I'm not in a position to do so at the moment.
It's a chance for a band or two to make a bit of an impact, and when my ranting gets enough attention that we can put on a regular all-ages gig that's entirely grassroots, then we can say 'No thanks' to Coca Cola. Unfortunately it's gonna take a bit of hard work.
Mark Thomas only takes an average working wage, the rest goes to a network of poverty action groups!
Oh wait, that's shite, he's actually a millionaire.

Actually, I believe that's been moved from 8pm Thursday to 1pm Wednesday in the Duke of York. At least according to the email I got.
I'm sure Mark Thomas writes fantastic books, highlighting the disgusting practices of the worlds most powerful and dangerous corporations just to pay for his 5 car garage and swimming pool.
Oh wait, I'm sure there's easier and safer ways for a successful comedian to make money.
Lets just hope blastbeat records don't treat their bands like Coke treats it's Colombian workers.
