CHRIST­MAS WRAP

Do you not think it’s too cold to be ven­tur­ing out to see some sleazy lit­tle

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - LISTINGS - Tony Clay­ton-Lea

rock band or some over-hyped ma­jor rock act or some ac­claimed singer-song­writer play to the gallery? Ap­par­ently not, which is why you’ve got peo­ple tug­ging at the leash to see Christy Moore and De­clan Sin­nott play sold-out gigs at Vicar St, and why you’ve got the kids and their par­ents trekking off to see Snow Pa­trol at the Point, stu­dents to see Chicks on Speed (pic­tured) at Craw­daddy, and ev­ery­one and their mother to see The Stun­ning jaunt around the coun­try. Along for the fes­tive ride (so to speak – we don’t wish to be ac­cused of point­ing the fin­ger at any­one in par­tic­u­lar) are The Frames, The Flaws, Jape, Repub­lic of Loose and, er, Smokie. Un­til next week, then?
