tomorrow night is benji b in dublin for a free show at solas. needles to say i am freakin' excited. took friday off work after i heard he was playing. nuff said.
friday night: dinner with friends and rest.
heading to cheebah in limerick on saturday for the 'credit crunch (on expenses) tour with adam whitaker (unusual&electric), paul tarpey and 'special mystery guest'. i've been following and supporting adam since i first posted about unusual & electric back in 2007. since then we've known each other virtually and pretty frequently i get packages in the mail with mix cds, new eps, calenders, postcards, etc. (as adam is also a designer). a true gent: passionate about his music yet equally passionate about living.
this will be the first time i get to meet him and to njoy seeing him playing not one, but two sets.
also looking forward to meeting the cheebah crew and to be at the club which is meant to be such great fun.
gonna b a good one.
sunday is back to ukiyo for two events.
first is a tasting session, and book reading from the "Evolution of the Ciaran Crawford Action Figure Doll" by Dylan Stott and Ciaran Crawford. Ciaran, the chef, masterminds the various recipies, and Dylan provides the stories.
Confused Eclectic has a great review of the last session of this series which is an event in itself.
lets just say that last time round there was Sake Mojitos, Mille Feuilles with Black & White Pudding, Apple Crisps and Cider Jus.Warm Champagne Jelly with Candied Chili and more and more.
following this is the afterparty to celebrate ukiyo's 5th birthday with billy scurry and guests.
i have the week off next week so yes, i'll be out and about on sunday night until the wee hours.
you can follow some of this (and more) on twitter if you please. delighted to have you on board.
