Gigs and bits

Gentle reader,

Some, but not all gigs and shows, since I haven't gone through the December lists yet!

So in no particular order...

The Lobby and Ork (not a typo) stuff...

Thurs 4th JUUTE Cork four piece whose short career has thus far been attracting the attention of many in the Irish music press and promoters. Featuring Vickie Frahill, vocals; Pat Scanlon, guitar; Jean Michael Cavallo,
drums and Johann O’Toole, bass. Special guest Paul Casey. €7.

Not actually son of Cyclefly, but I'll like to see them just on principal.

Fri 5th RICKY WARWICK A native of Newtonards, North County Down, Ricky was the rhythm guitarist with New Model Army. He then went on to front the very successful rock outfit The Almighty who opened the Monsters Of Rock Festival in Donnington in 1992 and played with Metallica in the Milton Keyes Bowl also that year. Ricky recently release his debut solo album ‘Tattoos & Alibis’ (just look at his arms to explain the title) this past few month to much critical acclaim. + Stewart Agnew.
Tickets €10

Read a Hotpress interview with him. Interesting guy. Also knows his stuff. Wouldn't mind seeing (or at least hearing) him in action.

Sun 7th CHARIS Following on from the release of their debut album Desert Dark Sky, Galway based band make a welcome return to The Lobby. €7

If you aren't sure, download and listen to the MP3 at Cluas.com and decide for yourself. It's a really old one by the way.

Tomorrow, FRANCES BLACK in The Opera House. You either like her or not (not that I've any intention of going).
I'm not going to Ann Scott 'cause I won't be in Cork. It's like my problem with Namiee Coleman shows. I'm always wither too late or in the wrong part of the country every time. And since it's in my inbox.. JOSH RITTER THE CORK OPERA HOUSE SATURDAY 14th FEBRUARY, 2004.
Now that is PLENTY of notice.

In the Triskel...

THE AMSunday 14 December
Former band mates of the late great Jeff Buckley. The AM channel gritty mysticism and wide-eyed innocence into the sound of new rock. Not to be missed! 8.00pm, €10.00

Enjoy a night of music including latino, melodic rock and much more. In aid of the Hope Foundation. 8.30pm. Tickets €10.00

And so to shows...

UCC Drama & Theatre Studies 2nd Year BA Students present FOODSTUFF
(The Restaurant at the End of Time)

a new piece of physical theatre Directed by ANDY CROOK at GRANARY Tue 2nd Dec - Sat 6th Dec at 8pm

I have no idea what it's about, but the combination of food and physical theatre is slightly scary to my mind (and a little messy too).

And finally... the CAT club.

Actually finally for the CAR club, it's being knocked in the New year...

December Wed 10 - Sat 13 Raise Little Bird which includes yours truly...

December Sun 14 "possibly the last ever quiz at the old cork arts theatre" at 8pm to fund raise for cancer research. and there is a Christmas show by Alleycats on Monday December 15.

take care,
