Hey,

I'm looking for a couple of bands who'd be into playing for 30 minutes at a community festival type situation. During the day. Outside. I wanted to get local original young bands but sadly that's proving trickier than I thought. So I'm throwing it out there to the thumped community. I'll have a backline and it is a paid gig. Late september. PM me for details.

most of the bands etc. that i want to see from abroad are 'auld people.
but what is disappointing is how hard it is to find out about young
people making music HERE.
there must lots going on i don't know about.
an obvious example is how does the lrish rap scene operate ?
you'd expect there to an a well organized scene but i know little of it.

I suppose when everything was done though zines and letters
that was difficult to make an initial step into too...

You very rarely hear the sound of young bands rehearsing in someone's shed anymore.

Heard one practicing in a garage a few weeks back while walking up to Broadstone DIT Luas stop from the Mater. Was noisey and sloppy like all young bands should be. Was lovely to hear and all too rare these days. I suppose a lot more kids are in their bedrooms making records on their own these days, which is cool in a different way.
