As I'm moving job/house, I'm condensing a lot into one blog to make up for lack of other blogs in the forthcoming days/weeks.
First up, tonight is the final show for 2008 from Limerick Jazz Society. Tonight's show has an international flavour to it with Ameiresco or should that be Am/Eire/Sco (geddit?), as it comprises of American, Irish and Scottish folks. American pianist David Berkman has brought them all together. Doors are at 8.30pm, concert starts at 9pm, and admission is €15 (€10 concession). As always, the venue is Dolan's Upstairs.
Tomorrow night (Thursday), it's nylon strings-meet Don Cab as Galway's Jung Turks come to Baker Place. I caught these guys a couple of times a few years back and was always impressed but haven't seen or heard much from them recently so wonder how things are sounding with them...
The busy boyos at Cheebah have two nights this week: their end of month sessions at the Wicked Chicken features Pete The Beat on Thursday, while Friday night, they welcome DJ Eggz to Mickey Martin's. Imagine if it was this DJ Eggz that was playing....uh oh.
Dundalk's premier ranting folkster Jinx Lennon play's Upstairs in Dolan's on Friday night. Jinx is always entertaining live.
Next weekend sees a couple of well-decent events also, which I'll probably hype up closer to the time. The Kerrynini lads have another show lined up, in the intriguing location of Pery's Hotel...I remember the Termights club briefly relocating to a room there before, that was way too much like a hotel lobby, but this is in a different room, in the hotel's basement. Anyway The Hideous Penguin and T-Woc are on the bill for that one...That's Friday December 5th. The following night sees the official launch of the [Crude] mag, with a gig featuring Sea Dog & others....Hup Hup.
