mongoose

Mongoose is “a musical melty-pot, comprising the combined vocal chords, instrument-playing and song-crafting abilities of four irish women”.

Above is their fine Bulletproof/Survivor cover mash-up.

Mongoose are playing the Workman’s, 10 Wellington Quay, Temple Bar, Dublin 2 TONIGHT Tuesday, for the Mine Anthology Repeal the Eighth event.

Sam Mardar (above), bassist with Dublin band Keywest, writes:

The public consultation for the new and very unfair rules the council are potentially imposing on  Dublin buskers is over this Friday at midday. We decided to fly back yesterday from our single promo in the UK to help rally the cause with our old Dublin busker friends

We’ve learn’t a lot about what can be done by the public in these situations after working closely with keepstreetslive organisation who saved busking in a lot of cities in Britain.

We don’t busk here in Ireland anymore and haven’t done for a while! but we really don’t want to see Dublin lose its street performance charm! Public consultation is on Friday, you can submit a submission and have your say here.
