In case you haven’t heard, The Frames will be performing at Vicar Street in Dublin on 9 June just a couple of days before their Cork gig! If you’re able to go, get your tickets at www.vicarstreet.com.
It’s been birthday madness up in here the past 3 weeks (including Shannon’s 40th!). This time we’re wishing the endlessly talented Colm Mac Con Iomaire a fantastic birthday next week. Happy birthday Colm! Taurus abounds…
We’ve done a bunch of housekeepin’ around here this last week. We’ve decided to finally add a social sharing feature so you can share pages or blog posts at Facebook or Twitter or via email, etc. Just click on the thingamajigger at the bottom of the page or post.
If you were familiar with the +Content page of the site, we’ve done away with it! Instead, as you browse through the gig listings, you’ll see notes next to the clickable gigs about what’s inside those pages without having to click on them. In addition, we created a page where we’ll list all of the gigs for which we have video of the entire show here.
+ we got Graham back up on the homepage (always too few photos of drummers!)
+ posted the rest of the Melkweg ’06 videos for a whopping total of 17
+ 2 videos for 29 June 2001 at Valmez Castle (with violinist Jan Hruby) for Czech TV1 in TV section
+ a couple new photos to the Prague Dec 2010 gig
+ posted Glen’s interview at Electric Picnic Sept 2010 to the gig page
+ pro-shot video of Midnight Hour to The Commitments’ Dublin 02 show
+ TV performance of Fake from 6 May 2005 to TV section
Finally, we added a bunch of reviews and photos from the Netherlands from 2005, 2006 and 2007. Thank you Maartje! We’d love to have more non-english press (anything, really) on the site so please send along to us if you know of anything. It would be helpful if you have time to translate, but if not we’ll just use a translator and perhaps come back to you with questions.
