Something for all the family: a nice blend of acts you know, acts you’ve read about here, acts who’ve played HWCH before and acts you (and I) have never heard of. You can do your pre-HWCH homework on the bands here.

Unasked for advice for bands who didn’t make the cut and are pissed off about this: as we suggested last year and the year before, put on a fringe event. Less fuming, more do-ing please. Better to try to organise your own event than spend tonight (and tomorrow night) griping at your girlfriend/boyfriend/band-mates/ma/da/brother/ sister/workmates.

The small print: HWCH 2011 takes place in Dublin city-centre venues the Button Factory, Workman’s Club, Grand Social, The Mercantile, Twisted Pepper and Shebeen Chic from October 6 to 8. A weekend ticket is €45 and a night ticket is €20 (both prices plus fees).
