On Friday night I went to a fantastic gig by an up and coming band called The Finest. They just happen to be my mates too. 😀 For those who don’t recall, I met some of the lads from the band during the Oxegen festival this year. They play lots of gigs around the city and I had been to see them live in Whelans but most of their gigs tend to be on the southside which is awkward to get from late at night. Luckily one of the lads (Murray, cheers man) let me stay over in his place so I wouldn’t have to worry about it.
The gig itself was excellent. The pub was quite strangely decorated but had a homely feel about it. I believe the support act was a friend of the band. I can’t remember the guys name but he was an excellent singer and was accompanied by a guy on acoustic guitar. Then it was on to the main act who made their presence known on stage with the use of a smoke machine and the Star Wars theme. 😀 Straight away they belted into the songs I’m familiar with from their CD, On the Line. The lads really go hell for leather and this was no exception. House of the Rising Sun and Gloria were also covered during the set. I’m looking forward to their next gig supporting the Commitments on 17th December in the Venue, Rathfarnham.
