A great night of music took place Dolans Warehouse last Saturday night, Local five piece Hermitage Green were back in Limerick after a great deal of touring which took in Australia and Dubai. Since their release of the four track ep 'The Gathering' in 2012 the lads have been making great in roads.
The band have always had a big following locally and had a good attendance weather it was the hermitage green of old playing just covers in the Curragower Pub. Its great to see a local band going so well and that their original material is being widely praised. Tonight is another example of their success having a Dolans Warehouse sell out show and selling out a few days before the night.
The warehouse was packed on arrival and the support on the night came from local band 'Randolf and the Crokers' , If you read indielimerick you will know by now that I'm in the band so I wont go into too much detail :) The lads played a nice warm up set of seven original tracks including a cover of Hall & Oats 'I Can't Go For That'. The band are currently in the middle of recording and are hoping to get a single out sometime soon and will continue to gig as much as possible. They play Dolans again on Friday the 5th of April supporting Julie Hawk, Keep an eye on them here
The main act arrived to a rapturous applause and got straight down to business. The band played a fifteen song set to a packed crowd. It was nice to see some of their own material being re-worked and fooled around with to keep it fresh. The harmonies are superb and they also played some new material which went down well and also some covers thrown in for good measure which included a lovely rendition of Massive Attacks 'Teardrop' and an old reliable of theirs Florence & The Machines 'Cosmic Love'.
Hopefully we will see another release soon but I'm sure they will have their hands full with gigs and festival appearances for the next couple of months.
If you haven't check them out live do so f you can, The band are currently on a big tour which includes London next weekend. Check out the dates and more on the band over here
Cheers for a great night!!
