Got me saturday tickets too :D

Also going to Glastonbury again so hopefully catch Len there too! 8)



Henning do you know what venue BPB is playing.
It looks like the good people at Foggy Notions http://www.foggynotions.ie/index.htm are hosting a new festival this summer, Future Days Festival, and its probably to be part of that...something that will most likely take place in lots of Dublin venues. Foggy issue a pretty decent mag and promote a number of good gigs usually in Whelans or The Village, the latter of which I really dislike so hope its not on in there!!

Ah Teddy Thompson. He's good. I saw him at the LC tribute show in Dublin 2006 and doing support for Lucinda Williams. I like his version of tonight will be fine. Did he do some LC covers ?

Yeah i love that version he does, also the Future but alas, he did not do them but his own songs are quite special too. I also love Bonnie Prince Billy, must look out for that gig.

Jesus! I was wondering: What's that Floridian doing in this thread when she's not even going to the Dublin concerts!

Sean
... "that Floridian" presumably being me, "Lizzy"... I'll go ahead and presume by your presence here [in this thread] that you are going to the Dublin concert.

Are you going to the Dublin concert(s) Lizzy? If so I will be looking forward to finally meeting you!

tinderella - you either stand at the bar humming a recognisable Cohen song and the others will find you, or you carry the Book of Longing so that it's visible (so, not under your oxter), or just take pot luck and chat to any pleasant looking person in the vicinity and if he's not 'one of us', maybe, late into the evening, after a few drinks, you can persuade him to join the Forum. :)
PS. You can always spot Red Poppy - it's the dress + the hairy arms + the pint of Guinness that give him away!

tinderella -
It is indeed a sight to behold and one of the highlights of our annual get-together :shock:
Has anyone told you yet about Birdonawire, Grecian Man, Jimmy O'Connell or Jimbo?
A treat other than the concert awaits you in mid-June. :lol:
I'd get into some serious training if I was you.
