On September 29th Thread Pulls, Dinah Brand, Richer Than Astronauts and Little Beauties play live in Whelans at a tribute night for Derrick Dalton. The night marks the second anniversary of Derrick's death, and the posthumous release of two records, an LP by his solo project Aeromodeller and a 7” single by his band Crumb.

Derrick played in Hey Paulette and Mexican Pets before forming Crumb, who released the LP Evenings and Weekends in 2005. The new Crumb 7” Like Goodbye features two great pop songs (on red vinyl) that were completed by Dez Foley and Fiachra McCarthy from the band after Derrick's death. The Aeromodeller LP First Flight is an album of jangly guitar instrumentals that was recorded almost single-handedly by Derrick in his own recording studio in 2008. Copies of both records are included in the ticket price of €12 for everyone who comes along on the 29th. Both are split releases on YesBoyIceCream records and Disques Fridge.

Aside from the bands, there'll be DJs until 2am and a stall selling some of Derrick's other releases and screenprints of the Aeromodeller LP cover by Niall McCormack. Tickets are available now from Whelans WAV box office and tickets.ie.

All profits are being donated to Aware.

Stage times:

Dinah Brand 8.30-9.10
Thread Pulls 9.25-10.00
Richer Than Astronauts 10.15-10.50
(Dez and Fiachra of Crumb will be joining RTA for a couple of Crumb songs too)
Little Beauties 11.05-11.45
DJs 12.00-2.00

I'm thinking more old school. Like going up to the door and saying "one please" and giving 12 pounds and going in.

As antiquated as this process may seem, I believe it is still honoured in situations where the gig has not sold out.

Must be.

Hugh is dead right, which is why my question should have been more along the lines of "is it close to being sold out or am I allright at chansin' it in at the door or wha?"

I'll refrain from being so economical with my questioning in the future. (insert appropriate new fangled emoticon here)
