on the road

So, I am back in work, after my weekend on the road! We played the first three gigs of our tour. Which can be summed up as follows:

Mullingar: hellish and too hot.

Cork: fun, and a nice city. Patrick is originally from Cork, although his family moved to Kildare when he was seven, so he kept reverting to his youth. By which I mean that every so often he would put on a (very scarily authentic) Cork accent, in a sort of mean baby voice, and say "I'll fight ye, boy! I'll fight ye for your sweets!" Which kept making me laugh, and so encouraged him.

Myrtleville: a gorgeous little village on the sea, about 25 miles out of Cork. There's a lovely Victorian guest house/pub there that regularly put on gigs, and we've played there before. A lot of cool bands play there, basically because the guy who runs the place is so nice and the location is so amazing. So we spent the day frolicking on the (very hot) beach, the night doing the gig, and the following morning lazing about on the beach again. The best part was being able to go to bed as soon as I got tired after the gig, because we were staying at the venue. Yes, I know this is a sign of my advanced age, but admit it, you too have longed to be instantly home and in bed after a night out. the solution: live above your night-spot of choice. It's the only way to go, honestly.

Sounds like reasonable advice to me. How did the gigs themselves go?

And can I just mention that it's still not that hot here?

The gigs were okay, but I was just too tired and hot to enjoy the performing aspect. It was just nice when I could pretend I was on holiday!

dear_hubby observed something similar on Saturday, to the effect of Ireland has the best weather in Europe...

Please forgive my dunce-ness, but are you recorded anywhere I can listen to?

Thanks in advance!

No, you counted as Irish for that article!

And yes, you can get it in most big Dublin record shops. The window display of Tower on Wicklow Street is devoted to it, and it's a "recommended" album in HMV. It's on the listening posts, too.
