I was utterly exhausted from Thursday night’s celebrations (when KISS picked up the gong for Mag of the Year at the Magazines Ireland awards, go us!) but managed to drag myself across to meet Yvonne at Green Nineteen on Camden Street for a comforting dinner of slow braised pork belly with mash and cabbage – very yum and very reasonably priced at €10. I also sipped a honey lemon daquiri which was delish.
Then on to Ms Hayes. Yvonne and I have been fans for years, and we’re eachother’s defacto gig buddies when it comes to seeing her; I really missed her at the last Gemma gig I went to, way back in May ’08.
It was an intimate and acoustic set, and she tried out some great new songs (Tokyo and Shock to the System are the ones that I can remember), played some old ones, and was her usual adorable, charming self (girl crush alert).
Below, a few shots and the vid for the very lovely Oliver (love the lighting and the moving focus in the video).
