Buile Buile Cheíle at the Roundy
Recently I went to a new weekly Sunday night gig at the Roundy called Buile Buile Cheíle with Donal. Basically, he needed someone to hold his camera bag while he did his thing taking pictures but heh, I’m not proud and it got me out of the house. The night itself features different artists each week so you might want to pick and choose, just check out CorkGigs for details of who’s playing.
The opening gig was nothing short of an eclectic cross-cultural mix of traditional Irish, African and Latin American styles and rhythms. While all of the artists on the night were excellent, I suppose the highlight was Rónán Ó Snodaigh from the band Kíla, who is undoubtedly completely bonkers and mad as a hatter but all of the better for it, I reckon. Donal will probably have some pictures of the night up on his own blog sometime later this year but given his current photographic backlog, I’m not holding my breath!
The gig itself was mad, the place was jammers though. As we discussed, a different location for the stage might help. And what's with all the chairs? If it's busy, get rid of them? Rant over.
You should try mix them two tracks together and see how it comes out.
