Although I did not play on the album, I was extremely honoured to play the album launch show for Béton. Congrats to @ramspocketradio and all other nominees. #nimusicprize
It was great to finally meet the guys from @twloha at @riotfest. I strongly recommend checking these guys out, buying a t-shirt and showing your support to combat the stigma around mental health.
I was finally able to clean off 20 years of dirt on this vinyl last night with ‘Clear Groove’ and let my ears rejoice in this masterpiece. #kingofpop
After finally recovering from jet lag my brain can fully function to write a short blog of our travels and shows at SXSW.
After a cancelled flight, running to the gate, two connections and a missing bass guitar, we arrived for our first show 5 minutes before being onstage. It’s safe to say, nerves were not a problem at this stage.
We had two amazing shows at the British Embassy venue: Latitude 30. Got to catch some of my favourite acts including Dinosaur Pile-Up and Prides.
Then we moved up the road to BD Rileys for the Full Irish Showcase and their official SXSW showcase in the evening time. Again some fantastic acts and really good fun.
The vast amount of acts, people, food and music was an incredible sight and a joy to be apart of.
Thanks to the Latitude 30 staff and team for treating us so well and storing our gear.
Until next year….
