Time to trip the light fan­tas­tic

TRIN­ITY BALL Trin­ity Col­lege Dublin Fri 10pm ¤76 (sold out)

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - Listings - TONY CLAY­TON-LEA

Hands aloft, legs akimbo, easy on the tequila and don’t spare the horses – this year’s Trin­ity Ball is the fastest-sell­ing in the his­tory of the event. Whether tick­ets fly off the sys­tem be­cause of the bands play­ing or just be­cause it’s – hey! – the Trin­ity Ball is a moot point. Cer­tainly, this year’s bill is a cracker, with the likes of Ash (mak­ing an early ap­pear­ance in 2007 and bound to be play­ing songs from their next album, Twi­light of the In­no­cents), The Flaws (cur­rently in the stu­dio aiming for a Septem­ber de­but album re­lease), CSS (pic­tured be­low), Di­rec­tor, The Im­me­di­ate and Chan­nel One. Whether the stu­dent body elect will ap­pre­ci­ate such mu­sic at 4.30 in the morn­ing, drunk on the prose of Proust and the po­etry of Plath if noth­ing else, is an­other mat­ter al­to­gether. We pre­dict not a riot but a col­lec­tive headache.
