Do you have some free time this weekend? We’re here to help fill it up with some ridiculously awesome things we’ve added to the site this week….
In addition to all of the lovely updates below we are so excited to be able to bring you these 4 amazing sets of videos!
+ a full 1993 crowd shot performance at Trinity College. Total classic and must see. Goggles!
+ all 5 songs performed at Parkpop in the NL in 2007
+ the (soon to be, we are still uploading) full Pinkpop Festival gig from 2005 in NL
+ a 4 song + interview thing with Glen in an elevator (glen-in-an-ele-va-tor!…sorry) in Amsterdam from 2006
+ We’ve updated the photos on the homepage so go have a look if you rarely go there! As usual, we moved the former photos to the Photography section. We were sad to move them, but now we are celebrating Coachella (Swell Season will be there next week) this month with a few Zoran Orlic shots from 4 years ago. We also snuck in a Zoran shot from 2005 at the ACL Fest & a fave of ours of the lads at Town Hall in NYC by Patrick Glennon.
+ At the 2001 For The Birds page we’ve posted a little piece of history with Glen talking about For The Birds track by track for RTE radio. It’s totally worth 15 minutes of your time! Also added links to RTE’s review of FTB at the time.
+ A bunch of new stuff on the 30 March FTB gig page– Emmet O’Brien’s pre-show speech (you can read and listen here), photos, 10 more videos and a great blog post from Jen about her experience at the gig with her guide dog O.J! (posted at Your Stories)
+We made a gig page for Glen’s appearance at the Barretstown Foundation fundraiser including full video that ran during the online stream – 4 songs and an interview
+ speaking of Coachella 2007 – we added a couple of cool shots from that same show (more to come soon)
+a video of What Happens to the Belfast gig from the 20th Tour
+ a super cool shot of Glen at Shepherds Bush in London from the 20th as well
+ a performance of Fake from 2002 on Dutch television in the TV section
+ Hot Press review of The Commitments at the O2
+ Lots more videos for each Commitments gig
+ a beautiful video of See-Line woman from the Glen & Liam gig at Whelan’s in March shot by Steve Mogerley
That’s it for now. Is that quite enough? We want to reiterate, if you see something on the site that you recorded and don’t want posted here, please don’t hesitate to contact us and we will remove it. Thanks to everyone who’s helped so far in the last 3 short months! Until next time, remember, “Freeebiiiird!” = still not funny.
