TODAY October 2 – Saturday October 4: Hard Working Class Heroes @ various venues around Dublin city (€20 per day, €45 for 3 nights)
“If you’ve even a passing interest in Irish music or new music in general, you should be rubbing your hands at the prospect of this weekend’s gigs in venues like The Workman’s, Meeting House Square, The Grand Social, Button Factory, Twisted Pepper, The Mercantile and Bad Bobs. 104 Irish bands are playing the night showcases with some of them playing free gigs In The City during the day. There’s also a conference, talks, panels and speed sessions for musicians in NDRC. Three to see? Somerville, Dear Desert and Planet Parade.”
45 notes seems like good value, I take it all the bands get a cut?
Few warm bottles of Bud light from what I remember
Bands are getting paid this year thanks to the extra sponsorship AFAIK
