So much blogging to catch up on both here and on Culch.ie will probably be burning the midnight oil tonight. Here’s a start:
Gardiner Street Gospel Choir were off the scale brilliant on Saturday night at The Helix, DCU. Everyone I went with and spoke to seemed to be on a buzz after it. Amazing show & fair play to them for doing their weekly gig in St. Francis Xavier’s Church the following evening – can’t have been easy! Well done to all involved, major blog post to come including MP3s of the gig. Paul May has some great shots of the guys n gals on Flickr.
Delorentos are offering up a free MP3 of ‘You Can Make Sound‘ over here.
GAF is always followed by the Galway Races, who knows this may be my first year attending the famed festival!
June 10th is the final sign-up date for the Tour de Burren, which is part of the An Post Cycle Series. It promises to be a fab weekend with 3 different routes to choose from through some of the most wonderfuly scenery in the country. Register online here.
Jason is asking you to put your name down for another installment of the awesome BTW (Blogger, Twitter, Whatever) which is happening on Thusday 11th of June. See you there!
There’s a mega range of stars n starlets playing the Live at the Marquee do this summer in Cork, from Josh Ritter to Rod Stewart to Lady Gaga to Gilbert O’Sullivan and everything in between (which is pretty much everything).
Tickets for Muse @ The O2, Dublin this November are on sale on Friday morning via Ticketmaster. It’s going to rock & I shall see thee up the front as the cool kids say. If you don’t know who or what I’m on about I suggest you listen to this gorgeous delight (give it time, tis a slow starter but SO worth it):
Tickets are on sale for the fabulous Gardiner Street Gospel Choir gig at The Helix, DCU on June 6th. Highly recommend going along, amazing bunch of singers & musicians – you’ll leave grinning ear to ear with a smile in your heart
And finally, I’m handing in my iPhone to be sent off to some foreign land to be hopefully fixed. In the meantime, Stu has kindly allowed me to borrow & unlock an N95 he had spare. I can’t get texts sending from it, everything else working fine so if you can shed any light on it I’ll buy you a pint or something suitably rewarding!
Jason is taking the BTW event to Cork today at the Boardwalk Bar & Grill at 6pm. I was at the last one in Dublin and it was a fantastic informal meetup of a great mix of people from various walks of the online world most of whom I probably wouldn’t have met ‘offline’ otherwise.
There’s some tasty badges on offer too if you need further reason to attend Would love to have been there but Cork will have its’ claim over me next weekend instead for the International Choral Festival which I will be posting about later on. Directions for how to get there. Have a great evening all!
