>> Without further ado (partly because of busy uni times atm), I'm going to cut straight to the chase week's highlights. One certainly notices that we are shortly before the beginning of spring with numerous easter specials coming up, which I'll definitely talk more about during the next couple of weeks. I assume, the promoters are in the middle of awaking from hibernation... We do, however, have a few cream toppings amongst this week's highlights. Such include punk-rock-royalty New Model Army & the "horny young urchins" (Ian Wade, BBC) from Wild Beasts.
And, for all those of you, who like to put themselves in life-threatening situation, you should miss out on celebrating Ireland's most beloved feast day at Mojo or O2 Academy (aka getting totally shamrocked).
