One of my “goals” for 2014 was to put on a live gig and this Thursday, I’m doing just that. It has been a long process with quite a bit more work involved than I naively imagined. In that respect I wanted to pay a small tribute to the local promoters, establishments and bands who regularly put on live music for our enjoyment. It can be a hard task trying to balance the books, promote the show & secure quality acts, especially if you have a full time job as well. Thank you for bringing us great live music every week, long may it continue. On that note I hope to see you all down supporting our five finalists in our Kickstart 2014 showcase this Thursday. Support local music!
Getting to Know: Robyn G Shiels – Oh Yeah Centre, Belfast – Wednesday 12th March 2014
The Oh Yeah Music Centre’s Getting to Know series returns with an up close and personal look at the enigmatic Robyn G Shiels. His ethos is summed up in “decent tunes for decent folk” although the night’s Q&A session should be a real insight into those dark lyrical thought processes that his music is known for.
Entry is FREE
