Saw the amazing Kíla last night in Whelans, which was sold out and jam-packed. Hard to believe the band is in its 26th year. Still the coolest band in Ireland. And unbelievably talented multi instrumentalists. In my next life I want to come back as a member of Kíla….

Last gig of the year, and what a gig… Saw the Waterboys' 'Fisherman's Blues revisited' at the Dublin Convention Centre last night. This wasn't an actual album show, but lots of songs of the 'Fisherman's Blues' era, played by the line up from those days. I have been a fan since the album prior to FB, but the FB line up has always been my favourite. Never dared to hope that I would hear them play with Anthony Thistlethwaite and Trevor Hutchinson again. The show was amazing - the full two hours - I wouldn't change a thing. Perfect.

Smith Street's Wil is doing some free, solo shows in Melbourne.

I have frequent flyer miles.

I think that's just a given now that I'm going.

Also the lovely and talented Emily Barker is doing some free shows in Sydney in January, and I'm going to make those, too.

Free is awesome!

Future of the Left was very good. I got a setlist, which was even better. It was pretty hot and steamy, and a disappointingly small crowd, though. Also the sound was kind of shit, I couldn't hear Falco very well at all, which was a shame. I was half through I Don't Know What You Ketamine going 'what song is this?' before I managed to work it out, couldn't hear him at all. And I love that song! Possibly because I was nearly sitting on Jimmy's monitor, though, but possibly not, since I could hear everything else, just not Falco.

Check out Superbestfriends, who opened. They were really ace, as good as FOTL.

I will never look as awesome in my life as Julia Ruzikia playing bass in heels. That ship has long sailed.

Frightened Rabbit are doing an acoustic show at The Barrowlands in Glasgow on the 15th of February, to raise money for the benefit fund for the victims of the Clutha Helicopter crash. Really good bill lined up for it, including me! It has been my childhood dream to play on that stage, and to do it in such brilliant company will be amazing!

I'm also releasing a new record with my band, so I'm doing lots of gigs around the UK with them and then over to Germany on my lonesome.

I just added Low Cut Connie to my list of bands I want to see again and again. Who could not like a band with an upright piano and a rubber chicken? They put on an excellent show at the Stone Pony in Asbury Park, NJ, opening for Jake Clemons -- and his band was excellent too.

Hope it's awesome for you.

An exciting few days ahead. I am going to see the olllam and the Gloaming.
Both groups exist of fantastic and established musicians, but the formations are kind of new. Here's a short documentary on each of them (I fear I may wear people out with links but can't resist the urge of spreading the word when I am stoked about something).

Walk out and smash it like it's some pub in the ass end of nowhere with six people huddled in out of the rain. Your music is fantastic, so you can do it.

In other news, I will tell you all as I have been telling randoms in the street for several days, Emily Barker has the most kick-ass voice I have ever heard ever. Also, she's nice. Super nice. If you get a chance to see her, GO.

Lucero. Saw them in the past, but Friday was first time as headliner. The show was everything a show should be. Small venue. Played for hours, including requests, folks bought Ben drinks in appreciation. Crowd knew all the words. Truly amazing. And I am lucky to see them again in March opening for DKM!
shows? 90 so far...

Four days, four gigs, part of the Temple Bar Trad Fest:
- the olllam: Trad with trip hop. Unlike anything I heard before. Amazing music; modest stage presence.
- Bellowhead: third best live band in the world?? (after the Boss and FT of course). I think so! This was my first time seeing them at their own gig as opposed to festivals. As excellent as before, but twice as long!
- Seth Lakeman: with a great four piece band. The gig was in a church but he made it feel like a club. His fast-fiddling-foot-stomping-rave song ('Kitty Jay') is still as impressive as the first time I saw him play it.
- The Gloaming: Masterful, out of this world. Bought their CD which is beautiful too. I had never been to a concert before where people stood up to greet the president as he entered. A man of good taste.

The marvel that is 'Kitty Jay':

I'm going to see Alcest in Barcelona next week. For anyone who doesn't know, I found this review for you to read.
