      Well I organised a gig a wrote a little blog about it, fancy that.
      Here it is.
      Ok so when I first saw Save Your Breath in Essex I was pretty into it, it was a nice change of pace from the rest of the line up.
      After I saw em I really wanted to be apart of getting them over so Iano said I could set up a Greystones gig.

      So I thought awesome! Because I hadn't really been apart of organising gigs in a long time. Even though it turned out to be difficult sometimes, for example when the lady from the scout den sprung a 200 charge for the scout den the day before (although you get 100 back), I sorted it out with her and I only had to pay 50 up front and the rest later. She was saying it would be different if it was for a charity or something, but I explained that well there isn't that much chances for kids to go to All Ages gigs with touring bands and bands they wouldn't normally see, so in a way it's just giving back to your own community. Maybe she just saw it as a chance to get 100 euro out of me and didn't want to cancel or maybe she listened to what I was on about I dunno.

      I liked going around putting up posters and flyering too, although it would have been better if more people had come along, but y'know people get busy and all that, with jobs and college, we can't all be lazy and work 21 hour weeks haha.
      The good attendence made all my effort seem worthwhile. Also everyone who posted a bulletin or just told someone about it and of course to those who came!

      The gig got off to a kind of ropey start when I forgot the mics (oops!)
      But Laura gave me a lift to Eoin's to pick some up and we had a good aul chat on the way!
      Thanks a load to Pamela too, I know you're not really used to driving yet and driving on the ropey Kilcoole roads with PA speakers in the backseat would be a bit daunting, so it was really great that you helped out!

      Anyway, it was a pretty big highlight of this year for me, as I haven't really been feeling great for the most part of this year so it was a really good change of pace for me.

      Find A Way really grew on my the last couple of days, like a lot, and so many people thought they were amazing at this gig, fair play lads, the more pop punk round Dublin the better, depening on what kind I guess...
      Save Your Breath were incredible it was way better than the first time I saw them because I knew all the words, and Your Oven's On Fire was incredible, everyone huddled around a mic shouting the lyrics as hard as they could "WE GOTTA MAKE IT OUT!"

      I missed two of their songs because of these fucking dopes who were outside smashing up a dollhouse, what kind of mentality do you have to be in to take something from the scout den and start kicking it around and not expect for someone to get pissed off like?
      One of the kids involved told me, Mack, Fab, Sean and Gav a heartbreaking tale about how he was just trying to fit in with his friends, I was pretty lost for words when he was saying "Sorry I'm so sorry I feel like I've ruined the gig, I was just trying to fit in" so I looked at Mackell and of course he just gave me the "Idun give a fuck" look haha.
      So I said it was grand and not to worry about the doll house.
      We totally just binned it and are going to deny knowing of it's existence haha. ROPEY.

      It was kinda fun acting the dad, giving out to kids for drinking and stuff, I was kinda annoyed the way they thought I was so naive to believe that the diet coke they were drinking suspiciously was JUST Coke, made me feel like an aul lad haha.

      At the end of the gig a lot of people were really really sound and stayed back to help me clean up, some people not even involved in the gig probably cleaned more than me while I fumbled with Sellotape trying to re-attatch the scout pictures, those precious irreplacable deskjet print offs..

      All in all I was really happy with how this went, but on another note kind of disappointed, a lot of my friends said they would go and didn't which is really disheartening because I know it's just going to be a load of bullshit reasons so I'm not even going to ask them about it, but yeah thanks for letting me down that was awesome, I'll know better than to support your bands/gigs in the future.
      I've made a lot of new friends over the past while and lost a few, but I'm glad I have the friends that I do.

      I'm not really good at writing blogs so I'll wrap this up.
      Thanks for everyone for coming, and I hope I'll be able to to run a lot more gigs in Greystones etc. now that I'm in Demented Promotions and all that.

      Love

      These 2 are really good rappers, the first being an MF Doom used to be in KMD.
      KMD broke up when Subroc was fatally hit by a car.
      KMD are kind of funk lounge rap, wheras after MF Doom left he became more hard on rap hip-hop.
      Check 'em out if you're closed minded or into metal you probably won't like 'em.

      This is an Omaha based Indie band.
      They combine extremely good music (They have a cello in the band) with clever lyrics to make an amazing musical experience.
      I only got into them 2 weeks ago and I wouldn't go back.

      So just wondering what other people thought of them, favourite albums/songs etc...

      Well, I'll just have to see. I always assume something bad will happen just in case. That way in the end I can usually say "It could've been worse." So, basically, I start pessimistic only in order to become optimistic at the end.

      I actually think it's our obsession with capitalism doing it. Capitalism breeds the love of money. Loving money causes greed. I am almost sure that this obsession with capitalism and money is going to kill us.

      Hey, hey! Not all Americans are bad!

      But yeah, our troops and our leaders need to fuck off and the people who live here need to pull our heads out of our asses. Then again, the UK is in a similar boat right now... Cameras all over the place and national ID cards that have all your info on them... That's scary shit if you ask me.

      Anything like that going on in Ireland?

      I'll admit I was skeptical when you said a video of an acoustic show on your stairs......but that was really good.

      Speaking of Defiance, Ohio the other day, my parents are just dropping me off at school today and then going out of town for the weekend. so after second period I'm skipping out with a friend and we're driving to Colombus, Ohio to go see them. I'm pretty excited

      and that's really cool about Defiance Ohio. I like to hear that band members are nice

      I've definitely heard Defiance, Ohio. I made a mix cd the other day for a friend and I put Oh, Susquehanna! on it.
