Possibly taking their cue from the likes of the Hideaway House in Dublin, a group by the name of Chain Reactions Promotions are hosting Guantanamo Noise-Fest II in Limerick next weekend, June 5th and 6th.
The shows take place in College Court (as you can see from poster above), an area of the suburbs that probably becomes quite deserted in the summer months when students move out en masse, so it may actually breathe some life into the estate. That is if the authorities don't stick their mitts in (On this point, if anybody running this gig would rather me remove this post for fear of where it will be read, please comment below and I'll delete).
One of the interesting discussions that came from the discussion I had with various promoters for [crude] mag back in March was about trying to find fresh perspectives on putting on gigs, and in particular looking at utilising non-traditional (i.e. pub, club, venue) locations for putting shows on.
Full line-up is on the poster, although I'm not clear if the €7 is a weekend price, or per night.
In the meantime, here's Toymonger in action:
