    The line up for Katy Dalys is :

    Trip fontane
    John Darcy

    ..so The Black Tokens, Jane Bradfords, Splitscreen and Stagger Lee are in the Limelight (not sure of the LL running order though)

    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?

    May be a stupid question but will the doors be unlocked or do ya have to constantly walk in and out of each one?
  15. avatar Elms
    Last year the door between Katy Dalys and The Limelight was open so you can just walk through the two venues.
  16. avatar ratherfunkychemicaljunky
    Nice one I'll have to check this out then.

    Sadly missed it. Is this still a 'competition' type thing in that one or two of the bands go on an IMRO tour?
    If so, who won?
  22. avatar thesneakybandit
    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.

    They pick two bands from each of the gigs to play a 'Best of Tour' show in Dublin, I think its on the 14th April this year.

    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
  25. avatar thesneakybandit
    from the three or four songs i heard by the jane bradfords they were probably the best band to play on the limelight stage. it's just a shame there weren't more people there to see them.
  26. avatar rigsyATL
    in katy dalys the sound was the best i've heard in a long time :-D

    cutaways were great!
  27. avatar TheJaneBradfords
    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.
  28. avatar Dr Zoidberg
    was a great night all round.
    really enjoyed patiosounds, total shame pete was having so much trouble with his guitar. any idea who won??
  29. avatar thesacredhearts
    "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.
  30. avatar pauldoherty
    i think they pick the best of all the showcases for a gig in dublin or somethin?
  31. avatar Shanghai 5
    why thank you thesacredhearts :D . I had a few technical problems with my guitar, but sure these things happen.

    Cheers El tel.
    Good luck to whoever gets the Dublin slots.
