Overpowered By Funk

I've been to three gigs in the last three nights in Cork - Fight Like Apes, Cathy Davey and Two Gallants:

Fight Like Apes on Tuesday. Great fun - mad as a box a frogs. Not sure I'd buy their stuff, though.

Cathy Davey on Wednesday - she was dressed as a she-devil and the backing band are all in skeleton costumes! Really great gig and a great album too.

There was, in fact, only one Gallant as the other one couldn't leave the States due to, eh, 'passport difficulties and issues with US authorities'(!) So that became a fairly dull acoustic gig, which was a shame. The support, Blitzen Trapper, were a lot more interesting - 70s style American Rock, not dissimilar to Kings of Leon maybe. Anyway I bought their album at the gig. Good tunes for driving.
