Dublin teens liv­ing the dream

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - News -

The sec­ond episode of a D411, a four-part doc­u­men­tary se­ries that fol­lows the tri­als and tribu­la­tions of Ir­ish teenagers, is aired on RTÉ 2 on Sun­day. This episode con­cerns LYD (Live Your Dream), a three-piece rock band from a dis­ad­van­taged in­ner-city neigh­bour­hood, and their jour­ney from bed­room band to play­ing in pub­lic.

Singer Amanda, lead gui­tarist Jodie and bassist Caitlin have been play­ing to­gether for the past three years, but have never gigged be­yond the con­fines of their lo­cal com­mu­nity hall. D411 fol­lows them as they at­tempt to write their own ma­te­rial and im­press Bryan Scully, the mar­ket­ing man­ager of Dublin’s Pint Bar, as they try to land a gig at his venue.

They’re also deal­ing with the chal­lenges of grow­ing up and find­ing their own iden­ti­ties. The episode airs at 11.55am on Sun­day.
