Hello, world. I’m MacDara Conroy, and this is my blog.

Burn Piano Island, Burn!

Last night I was at the Temple Bar Music Centre to see this lot:

The Blood Brothers on stage at the TBMC

It was an excellent show (click here for a review) despite the poor turnout. If anything, it was better that way due to the favourable lack of poseurs.
The people who were there were pretty bemused, though. I only spotted one person dancing, but he was quite drunk so it doesn’t count. And I, for one, wasn’t about to leave my well-earned stool to start bustin’ moves at the foot of the stage (not without friendly support, at least).
I just hope the Brothers weren’t too put off by it; many a touring band has abandoned these shores as of late due to our fear of the new or unusual.
Hell, I’ll book them to play in my own back garden if I have to.
