Wow, Tortoise in Whelans?? That should be great!
Yeah, Tortoise, K Hersh and Bonnie Prince Billy in Whelans over the next few months. At what stage does this start to feel like a 90’s nostalgia tour? All about 28 euro, which is the only annoying part. Have some decisions to make…

Nice to see that The Divine Comedy are still motoring.
Yeah, but his new effort, the Duckworth Lewis method have just been nominated for an Ivan Novello award, with their album about cricket! They’re getting lots of good press, so he dropping DC soon enough! Still, new Diving Comedy album in a few weeks, so i can’t complain!
Glen Hansard is playing the Odessa Club, Dublin on Wednesday 28 April at 8pm. Admission €10 in aid of Maasai Truck Fund.
top marks mister donnelly. you have your ear to the ground!
Is Dans La Sac a new French act? I presume that’s with Scroobius Pip? Is the second album any good? It got very mixed reviews, though that doesn’t necessarily mean so much.
Dan had Pip with him, alright! They were in top form. Hardly a mention of the new album though. The new one is ‘alright’ but nothing more, i listened to it about twice, and then forgot about it. I should revisit it.
