I’d intended on a quiet weekend (of sorts) which is advisable with a match early on Sunday morning. That’s all changed following a mix-up or crossed wires, call it what you will but two of my mates from London are arriving in Dublin tomorrow so all the ‘quietness’ is obviously out the window now.
As well as some catching up and drinking, some music will be on the agenda which will most likely involve a trip to The Twisted Pepper to catch Adebisi Shank.
It took me some time to really get Adebisi Shank but it was certainly worth the wait, they are one of the loudest and best Irish bands around at the minute. It should be a rather unique experience on Saturday as the show is geared to give the band a chance air some new material with a new album expected in August.
Support on the night is hardly lightweight either with DJ sets from Not Squares, Nialler9, Gav (SEBP) – (€10 – Doors @ 11.30pm).
I might still make my match on Sunday but will probably be half deaf and about as useful as most of the England team were in the World Cup.
