A music blog from Ireland.
I love Ragged Words. It’s a simply-designed, well-maintained, fairly-balanced selection of local and international music features, with a new treat or two every day. Its contributors present an astute, friendly taste in music and do not hedge their best in favour of acceptable norms.
And so it is a great thing to see their first gig of the year at Pogo in the Twisted Pepper tomorrow night get off to a fine start with support from the tetchy trio Jogging and orbiting post-punks The Cast Of Cheers followed by a headline set from Hunter-Gatherer, whose December debut album RW deemed amongst the best of 2009. Other shows tomorrow night align quite nicely as it’s a late show and I’m really looking forward to winding the weekend out with that much extra live music.
My only gripe (the reason I held off publishing this post all week) is that flyer. Ahem, tbh I expected better from you guys and hoped a nicer effort would pop up sooner. But at least you have a flyer and deadly line-up so…of course you’re forgiven.
Check out the brand-new Cast of Cheers interview.
