Who is the most fa­mous per­son to have shown up at one of your gigs? Not really one of our gigs, but ap­par­ently Ger­ard But­ler showed up to one of our par­ties at SXSW last year.

Spirit Store, Dun­dalk 8pm 112 042-9352697 Then he left, and some dude lit his face on fire. Our par­ties are pretty cool. What’s the most you’ve ever paid for a gig ticket? Bears are rarely let into venues. How many road­ies does it take to change your light­bulbs (ie, how big is your en­tourage)? On our last two sup­port tours our crew num­bered be­tween one and zero. We’re pretty self- suf­fi­cient. Any use­ful stage tips? Re­mem­ber what city you’re in. Tra­di­tional list­ings: Siob­hán Long slong@irish­times.com

From face-burn­ing par­ties to shoot­ing with black pow­der guns to play­ing Woodstock to break­ing in to the ho­tel swim­ming pool on the last night of the tour with all the other bands and crew.

It was pretty epic. And old VW cam­per vans were an amaz­ing way of travers­ing and ex­pe­ri­enc­ing the US.
