This week’s show is somewhat dedicated to that well known Dublin phenomenon where there are no gigs for months and then suddenly gigs every night and then no gigs for months again. The show also features a ton of newish garage-ish music in a stark departure from the last few weeks. Festivities kick off with Sunday night’s Jon Spencer Blues Explosion U:mack gig. Then its on to The Dwarves, The Men, Moonhearts, Bass Drum of Death, Neighborhood Brats, Hunx and his Punx, Mind Spiders, Legendary Wings and Earthmen and Strangers. Then its back to Friday night’s gig in the Joinery featuring Gummidge and :Hounds:. Saturday night sees the welcome return of cans on the canal and gigs in the old Lower Deck featuring (among others) Whole Sick (a re-vamped Pulled Apart who are played here) and good time rock legends Wizards of Firetop Mountain. Closing out the show its Ty Segall, Rozwell Kid, Muletrain, DC Snipers, Sonic Avenues, Video and lastly one from Dinosaur Jr.
If you only take two things from this show let them be these:
1. Go to local gigs cuz they are great craic.
2. If you keep dropping your microphone, your radio show may sound like you recorded it in a wind tunnel.
Tune in, turn it up, see you on the canal.
