Another great night of local talent in Limerick took place on Saturday. Dolans Warehouse saw three limerick bands take to the stage to celebrate the release of Protobaby's new double a side single Microchip/Nobody Knows.
First up on the night was 'Randolf and the Crokers' , with all reviews of this band I will make it clear that I'm in the band so I wont blow our trumpet too much however I do play our harmonica :) . The lads played a nice set of five tracks too a nicely filled warehouse. The Crokers have been gigging mad of late and will be back playing the warehouse on the 23rd of March supporting the excellent Hermitage Green. A night not to be missed. Check out the lads here.
Next up were Dead Red Light, The trio have been very quiet of late which isn't like them as they are a very loud band! A new drummer on tow and a few new tracks from the band. Its good to have them back playing live gigs. I'm sure we will be seeing a lot of them soon and hopefully another release. Check them out here.
Last up were the headliners Protobaby. We were first treated to a screening of the videos for their brand new double A side tracks Microchip/Nobody Knows. I have witnessed the lads countless times live now and they always perform a great live set. I first saw the lads back in June 2009 playing this very venue supporting Kiernan McMullan. Review Here.
I was extremely impressed by this young limerick band back then and they have gone from strength to strength ever since and as far as I remember it was their first ever live review :) . Their debut album 'The Spark' is an incredible piece of work and one to have in your record collection. I was delighted to learn of the band signing to a record label this year in the form of the brilliant 'Fifa Records'.
2013 is going to be a huge year for them with some major touring and festivals lined up. The band played an incredible set on Saturday which included a brilliant rendition of Depeche Mode's 'Silence' and Bob Marley's Redemption song for good measure. They are the best they have ever sounded and the hard work and constant gigging as clearly paid off. Best of luck for the rest of the year and if you can go and check them out live. For now go buy their new single for only 99 cent here.
Cheers for a super night!
