VIBE FOR PHILO XXIII-DANCING IN THE MOONLIGHT
The 23rd Vibe for Philo – takes place at the Button Factory, Temple Bar throughout the 3-4th January 09. Tickets are currently on sale through Ticketmaster.ie and outlets nationwide. Limited edition picture tickets from Freebird Records , Sound Cellar & Mojo’s.
It’s that time of year -so here we go again! After much deliberation, the organisers of this critically acclaimed event have finally decided that this year’s theme will be “Dancing in the Moonlight”. Virtually every major venue in Dublin has hosted the Vibe as it crosses the river Liffey from North to South and now The ’09 Vibe returns to the Button Factory from the 3rd to the 4th of January, with the Pre-Vibe, Main Event, and a repeat of the successful Matinee on the Sunday afternoon Being a weekend there will also be numerous side events, organized and impromptu, but more of that later.
We realize how little precious time there is left, and with Crimbo and the New Year Celebrations in between, January will be here before you can say “Jack Frost”…Established acts such as Elvis Costello, Sinead O’Connor, and Adam Clayton were previous special guests and created enough optimism to convince everyone that this event is one that warrants much public appeal and signifies a most entertaining event for Lizzy fans old and new. So far we know that the Lizzy Boys (Japan) are “Ready to Rock” on all three shows with a different set on each occasion, Hoodoo Rhythm Devils, MD Brian Grace and numerous guests inc. – Matt & Phil (Tizz Lizzy), John Conlon (Thin az Lizzy), Derek Herbert (Les en Fants) Dave Mc Guinness (Lir) Colm Quirney (Q) Mark Adams, Paul Toal, Jimmy Coop, Ditch Cassidy, Robbie Bray & Ritchie Buckley and anybody else of interest and with a good idea that props up between now and the event!
New Lady on the block – from New York City – with a brilliant Debut Album and a Top 40 single under her belt and flavour of the month with Ian Dempsey’s Breakfast audience on Today FM – the charming Nell Bryden is also a huge Philo fan having been fascinated and inspired by his writing technique …No stranger to Ireland she has preformed to sold out shows nationwide …Welcome on board Nell , who will render a acoustic set and join the House Band for a ditty or two…Other Acts on the Show inc. Emerald, who did an acoustic set some years ago but will go full- on -electric on this occasion with some interesting versions of lesser performed songs …Renegade will drop in and out over the “Happening Weekender ” with a few other bands in mind for alternative slots on each Event ,,,Spice things up and keep it interesting over the three shows would be the plan …
“Audio Visuals will be present throughout, even though it’s hard to know what to feature at this stage as most people have built up extensive libraries over the years …A few rarities and a few classics I’m sure will do the trick, as it will after all be the Gospel according to the Main Man that was Philip P Lynott …The Boss of Irish Rock …On a related subject – Chatting Today with original Thin Lizzy Manager -Terry O Neill he brought it to my attention that in 2011 when we are staging the climaxing 25 Vibe for Philo it will be exactly 40 years since they debuted supporting Skid Row .at The Countdown Club ..I was present on that occasion …We might try combine our efforts to stage something spectacular , but that’s a thought for another day …Let’s get this one done and dusted first and foremost…”
