Has it been another week already? Can’t say we’re sad to see January go!
We’ve made a page for the site over at Facebook where we’ll post about updates and sometimes favorite bits from the site to spice up your workday (that’s what FB’s for right?). So if you’re already there why not give us a thumbs up!
Since 2011 is the 10th anniversary of the release of For The Birds we’ve set up a little page for it featuring some press and photos (by the awesome Patrick Glennon) from the time. Quite notably we’ve posted wonderful documentation by Donal Scannell of the day the band got their finished copies of the record and performed at a cafe in Dublin. If you haven’t seen these videos it’s well worth your time to check them out.
Our friend Andrea chose Red Chord for the latest selection on the Jukebox.
We have a few bits from the Swell Season’s performance at the Ann Arbor Folk Festival this past weekend.
An Aug ’10 interview with Colm at The Ruckus
A fan’s set list from the stage at RDS 30 Aug 2003.
3 videos from 10 Sept ’07 in NYC at Webster Hall – Lay Me Down, What Happens When The Heart Just Stops, Star Star
5 videos from this amazing show 6 Sept. ’07 in LA at the Henry Fonda Theatre – Stars Are Underground, Fake, Falling Slowly, People Get Ready & Where Is My Mind
Video of Santa Maria on 5 Oct. ’06 in Cork at the Everyman Theatre.
Video of People Get Ready on 31 Oct. ’07 in Dublin.
To close, we’re encouraging folks to continue to send stuff in! If you know someone who is a fan but may not know about the site, please fill them in. We’d love more stuff that we just won’t find online…you know, those boxes or notebooks of old rock and roll stuff from your wayward youth you have stashed away somewhere. Bring them into the light!
Thanks and have a super cool weekend!
