Hey there. reporting on our gig last week (and it WAS only last week, so there-blame the postal strike for the delay), in Vicar St. for Ireland's first Comic Relief. Fantastic to be part of such an auspicious occasion (if that's the right phrase). Going from pubs to a 1000-seater venue, full to capacity, was quite an experience. The roar of the greasepaint, the smell of the crowd…
And what a line-up.. Well, Im glad you asked: in no particular order, Jameson Green, Walking On Cars,, Keywest Official, Bipolar Empire, our humble selves and the big man himself, Paddy Casey, not to mention comedy by Niamh Marron, Joel Dommett and our good buddy Fred Cooke (with a possible guest appearance by Jesus, or a heckler, depending on who you believe). All these people in one room in the name of music, comedy and charidee. Of course, we couldn't mention all these acts, artists, musicians, comedians or Fred without thanking the organisers Danielle Liebing and Louise Tighe for putting it all together and MCing this rowdy rabble-and they were rowdy, trust me. I had to  force myself to have a few sociables in Whelan's until the early hours just to use it against them as evidence.. All in all, a fantastic night, a great cause in aid of Crumlin's Children hospital, long may it continue and huzzah! :)
