Aye. The 'Lemon' V Necks are doin a one off gig with Seamie McAndreasa on drums (spelling wrong I'm sure) who had a live spell with them a fair while ago before Marty from Arcane was in them but he was well good as I recall from me old live tapes in Kelly Cellars.
Gavy and Jimmy Sadler on too of course. Dunno about bass yet but Gavy has assured me they're definately playing and tickets are bein printed up and should be ready next wed.
Should be a cracker.
You will be able to pay at the door but people with tickets will have priority.

This was a great night. All the bands were fucking fantastic and I wish I had of been able to just rock out and get blootered but I did my best.
Sorry about my disasterous raffle presentation. Can't believe my sis came up and picked her own no for the first prize. Then the raffle bucket got knocked over an all. But sure it eventually got sorted and I reckon everyone who came had a good time.
Thanks tremendously to all the bands, Underline, Throat Locust also for the cd for the raffle and Dave, Chris Angry Host bro for the bass amp, Marty and Aidan from Arcane for running down from the Pavillion gig for what I believe to be one of the best V-Neck gigs. Ian did a great job on the sound and time and as much as I hear shit about bouncers they were dead on this night.
Cheers to the Falls Community Council for printing up the tickets and all those who gave a donation for the raffle.
Also cheers to the staff and pupils of Meanscoil Feirste, Beal Feirste for the collection of £122.
We made just over £700 so I believe it was a success considerin the place wasn't packed and maybe it should be done again.
Thanks again to everyone who made it.
