    Just heard that Jenny Lindfors has been added to the Jove gig in the Olympia. This is just a personal view on my musical taste but am starting to become more then a little impressed at the line up. A mate has also said that its being watched with caution from various industry heads to see if it will work in order to perhaps have future "unsigned acts" shows. so who is tagging along? can it work?

    I'll more than likely be reviewing this gig. Really good line-up. Hopefully it attracts a large crowd.

    I've no idea of costs, but it is venue that should/could be used more often by local acts. I remember seeing Tyco Brahe play a Midnight show, & it was pretty cool. I liked the idea of meeting my friends first then going to a gig, as opposed to leaving a venue after 11 & letting a bouncer decide if I can meet up with friends or not.

Have done some PR work within the olympia for bands in my past life and am guestimating here but i reckon this is probably costing jove close to 5 figures. I for one am excited about the prospect of seeing these bands on that level and how they perform and cope with the night. I hope they pull a crowd as I think Mully said it in a way and so did you flipper with your thread, if it worked it may well open up more doors for Irish Acts and promoters. Yes i'm going and so is me missus though she does not know it yet!!!

    I think it's about €15 to get in on the night which is pretty decent a price if I'm right. I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm not....

    Hi all Yes we've added Jenny to the bill. We were talking about the night etc etc and kinda went .."oh f**k, we've no female representation on the bill" with the exception of the Alphastates Katherine, so we thought it was important to bring in a female act and we think she is great too. "Illyad" your fairly spot on, its 14:50 standing and 17:50 seated including booking fee. We are going to go for a 7:45 door time with first act on about 7:50. Four weeks today... a few nerves but sure would not be normal if there were not, hope as many of you can make it as possible. Cheers Jove

    Hey Mutch.... not done it yet!!!! Gig is Saturday March 19th! We never really thought we dont need hype and am sorry for being silent on this recently but i just think the room had enough of the whole debate and wanted to stay away from it. We need and have been getting press but could do with some more on this night in question. To be honest I think, forgetting about Jove for a minute, that the acts on the night themselves give people a real choice as regards music tastes. They are all different acts in my opinion and each with their own style. I believe that whether there are 160 people there or 1600 it will be a super night and people in the Industry ARE watching this, in particular promoters and Industry heads. If it works then ,maybe, we will have achieved what we are trying to do, stage an event independent of music promoters with the hope that we can unlock some avenues for future events like this and that, just perhaps, promoters of note might stage maybe two a year in a high profile venue, doesn't have to be the Olympia, but just that they take more notice. Two other things for you. (1) Alison Curtis is going to MC the night (2) Please come!!! Thanks for reading Later Jove

    Flipper i think i might have to cough up a few pennies... 16 people is a fair whack! lol Just to answer your question Kierry and sorry took me so long, to my knowledge, their are a couple of Cluas boys/gals coming down for a look see so there should be a review, best review though would be your own review... he he... tag along if you can! Talk soon Jove
