true story – truly brilliant

Thanks to all who came out and made the brownbread mixtape #3 such a storming success in our new venue at the Stag’s Head. We had amazing spoken word and musical performances, with a few magical collaborations that lit up the night. The Guilty Folk wowed us with his witty lyricism and catchy tunesmithery once again, culminating in a deadly duet with Sarah Williams. Stephen James Smith was a last minute super-sub in the poetry team for Colm Keegan and gave us another top notch performance with a fantastic musical-slash-spoken-word rendition of  W.B. Yeats’ September 1913 with the mighty Enda Reilly. Enda himself played some stunning tunes in English and Irish later in the evening to a raucous reception. The room was stunningly silent as Pearse McGloughlin unplugged and sang some lush songs in the middle of the room. Pin. Drop. Heard. More true story infused poetry was laid bare by Karl Parkinson who truly captured the audience’s attention with his honest and uncompromising poems. Additional japery and tomfoolery came in the form of true letters written by Kalle to crap Irish celebrities. On the night they were read aloud by actors Sean and Gus McDonagh. The audience also contributed some wildly funny and odd true stories that were shared. A sampler of all of these acts can be found on our myspace jukebox right here.
