Support on the night comes from excellent cool-big-sister rock band Medea and atmospheric musicmaker/effect wiz Fairlights
Medea is a Dublin based three-piece comprising of Edel Coffey (guitar and vocals), Mary Carton (bass and vocals) and Lynn Millar (drums). Since they formed in 2003 they have developed a sparse, melodic sound which has been likened to bands such as Joy Division, The Breeders and Sleater-Kinney. All three women share songwriting duties and are due to release their first album at some as yet unspecified future date. Medea have played several gigs throughout Ireland in the last year, including an IMRO showcase and a set at Dublin Ladyfest where they were praised for their quality sound and engaging stage presence. In January the band was hailed by Hot Press as one to watch out for in 2005. "There's an insistent brooding quality about the Medea sound, that's leavened with shafts of light and beauty" Niall Stokes, Hot Press
