OTR column – what’s the best gig you were ever at?
A new book on the Irish music community’s favourite gigs has just been published in aid of the Irish Red Cross
You’ll find this week’s On the Record column from The Ticket here. “I can tell you what’s my favourite album – Marvin Gaye’s What’s Going On – and I can explain the reasons why this is the case until the cows come home and go out again the following morning. But the issue of a best gig, a favourite gig, often can’t be answered in quite so righteous and absolute terms. If you’re brutally honest with yourself, the gig which stands out in your memory changes as the years go by.”
