Belated Happy Paddy’s Day y’all! I spent the weekend off my tits on Guinness and recuperating from said-stout sessions in between bouts of SXSW updates and update-driven jealousy. I spent Paddy’s Day in the Guinness Storehouse for fucks sake! That place was the whirlpool of “Éire” over the weekend with shamrock-wearing tourists and pissed up Paddy booze hounds in Leprechaun hats mingling on seven floors of hops-encrusted revelry. It was actually good fun and I caught Jenny Lindfors, Ben Kritikos, Ham Sandwich and the amazing 215-piece strong Auburn University Marching Band (Amazing, I tell you! ) performing.
The big draw for me over the weekend was the Edan/Dagha show in the Tivoli Theatre. I’d heard such great things about his Crawdaddy gig in 2006 (Choice Cuts have archived the performance for your listening pleasure). (more…)
