This week we welcomed our 100th friend on Facebook, so that was pretty cool! We’ll sometimes make updates there or tweets over on Twitter randomly during the week, so join us at either or both. Whatever works for you.
+ Speaking of Tweets and status updates, last Friday we alerted everyone to a new update to the site- full video of The Frames’ first gig (or first that we have on record here) at The Project Arts Center in Dublin in 1991. It was shot by Donal Scannell, David & Niamh (anyone have last names?). It’s a must see!
+ We also added full video for a performance at the Lowlands Festival in the Netherlands from 2006. The whole thing is choice, but if you’re short on time, be sure to watch Dance the Devil.
+ There are 7 new beautiful gig posters in the Gig Posters section.
+ Various set lists from the 2000’s
+ Put up a few photos on the FTB 30 March gig page
+ I (Jenn) got a special treat this week when a friend sent along two live versions of Giving It All Away, one of my absolute favorites that I have never heard live. I put them on each gig page to share, both 1995- Nancy Spains in Cork & Andrews Theatre in Dublin.
+ We fancied up the Coachella 2007 gig page with more of Zoran’s photos. Even with just visuals you can tell that was an amazing (and insanely hot) show. At least The Swell Season is playing at night this Saturday!
Finally, If you haven’t noticed the +Content page under Past Gigs before, this is a place where we list past dates that have things on the page other than simply a set list (videos, clippings, photos, etc…). This way you can go there to more easily click through to find things than going through all of the Year pages. This week we made it even easier for you to find what you might be interested in by noting on +Content what is actually on the page before you click the link. Each time we add something to a past gig page, we will add a link to it on +Content as well. Note, +Content does not include any of the 20th Anniversary gigs from 2010, but there’s tons of stuff there, just go to that section.
Have a good weekend everyone!
