Re: Dublin preconcert meetups

Was in the Harbourmaster Wed night but no sign of a 'meet up' as such..saw a few likely looking candidates for LC gig, and wondered was there anyone in there from the forum?.. Then it got really packed with suits and stuff so we just headed down to the gig (in the lashing rain!) So just out of my ow...

Re: CONCERT REPORTS: Dublin, July 19, 20, 22, 23

Well, like has been said already, I don't know what I can really add here. I was at the Wednesday gig and it was my first time seeing LC in concert. It was like a religous experience, it really was. And that probably sounds naff but I'm not a naff person I swear (ask Tinders..) but I've been to so m...

Re: Words LC pronounces better than anyone in the world

Hmmm..so many to choose from, it's hard..

A close second is 'Avalanche' from er...'Avalanche'.. :D

Re: Which is your favorite Leonard Cohen period?

For me when I hear say Suzanne and then say On That Day, it's so different and he's evolved so much over even those 30 years..understandably maybe as an outstanding writer and artist ..not just the obviousness in the contrast in vocal tones! S...

Re: songs or albums by L.C that you DON'T like?

Great thread :) Have to say I love the cover and title itself of Death of a Ladies Man..pity it's such a poor representation otherwise! Fab cover.. Jazz Police - yes, godawful..Have to say too, the first version of of First We Take Manhatten I heard was from Famous Blue Raincoat-in my Dad's collecti...

Re: Dublin preconcert meetups

Hi wafflewaitress, and welcome to the forum. Yep the Hydra trip is just over. There were 80 people from many countries (8 of us Irish) there for various lengths of time from around the 9th to 18th June. The Hydra meetup is just an informal gathering of LC fans. It usually happens every second year....
