More Support For Bob

On Friday, I put on one of my newly-acquired cheque shirts and popped down to a packed Dolan’s Warehouse in Limerick to watch a few local bands fight it out for the chance to open for Bob Dylan at Thomond Park in just over a week. I’d been watching a tense World Cup game between Spain and Chile, so I missed Animal Beats and Nick Carswell and the Elective Orchestra. I did arrive in time to see a lively set from Last Days of Death Country, a loud, grungy four piece with indecipherable lyrics and a lot of energy. There were followed by the more melodic and musically adept Brendan Markham and Band, who delivered quite an impressive set. I missed the final act, Windings, as I got stuck upstairs chatting about the England and Germany match in the World Cup and this and that. Last Days of Death Country emerged as the winners and hopefully I’ll arrive on time on the fourth of July to see them open for Bob. Congratulations to the Last Days of Death Country and here’s a Dylan cover from the Dirty Projectors for the four acts that missed out last night
