    If I can make it to over ten acts I'll be happy. But I'll aim for these: (Friday) Jenny Lindfors Bill Coleman The Rags The Radio Fred Celest The Mighty Stef (Saturday) Dirt Blue Gene Dark Room Notes Joe Chester The Walls The Rotators The Chapters Pony Club (Sunday) The Shakes Corona The Urges The Guggenheim Grotto The Amazing Pilots Chuzzle Mono Band - Whether or not I make it to all of those is another thread altogether

    Got this from CPU, fair play to Stone Ocean, well worth checking out. " CPU has learned that 3 acts on CPU have gotten together and organised a gig in Temple Bar Square in the open air at 4.00 on Saturday the 27th of August. Those clever lads in StoneOcean spotted that right smack in the middle of The Hard Working Class Heroes festival that the Square was not booked up and went ahead and organised their own mini festival with-in a festival so to speak. With Temple Bar about to be swamped with music lovers for Irelands answer to In The City, attendance for this ingenius piece of self promotion is bound to be big. First up is The Zenotones at 4.00 and followed by Kopek at 4.30 . StoneOceans set begins at 5.15pm and to top the day off StoneOcean and Kopek will then play from 9pm till 12pm in The Mezz. These lads wont take no for an answer it seems."

    well, una does manage the bleedin' bleedin's, so y'know she would be always on about them. good lineup in the olympia on friday, will flit betweenthere and the TBMC. saturday looks ok, i'm just going to float about i guess. sunday, i have no interest and will probably skip. (if anyone wants my wristband - you're welcome to it) at no point all weekend do i have any desire to see anyone in pravda. *shudder*

    hehe, didnt know Una managed them, it all makes sense now though...! the Urges are worth checking out if you havent already, they play the music centre on sunday, (i do their website though, so ya can take that with a grain of salt if you want!) yeah never been to a gig in pravda, was pretty surprised when i heard they had started doing them. Seems like a weird spot

    Pravda is actually pretty amazing for live music. It really works and there's good guys running it now. Check out King Kong on Wednesday nights.

    its very good for acoustic acts, and not bad for bands, not perfect for bands, but as any contributor to this site probably knows, theres not alot of perfection around Dublin's venues!:) the tiger beer is nice though! AND the last time i was there the barlady(person, whatever, pc and all that nonsense) actually made a point to get me a cold one from the fridge instead of the usual fifo method (first in first out for you nerds who dont know about accounting!)
