Amidst the furore of Kildare’s annual frenzy over the races at Punchestown and suit invasion to boot, Band on an Island where launching new single ‘Back Disco’ in Newbridge. The alternative to the race day decadence and trendiness was taking place only a few miles down the road in the secluded surroundings of Ryston, in the bands hometown of Newbridge.
It would have just been rude not to take a wander down to check out the buzz and it turned out to be really good night with support from Appo and the Dead Orphans, The Yochill Band and The Last Tycoons who were particularly impressive (I even bought me an album). There’s nothing like good live music and a few jars to sort you out for the night anyway there’s some clips but apologies for the sound quality, it isn’t perfect.
(Slight) health warning BOAI are mates of mine, none the less still a great band!
