Diary dates, lists and other miscellany
Plenty afoot, folks, despite the weather. First off, Fustar is back with Dreadful Thoughts: find your reading assignments here. And in the spirit of new years, Fashionista Rosemary MacCabe has a fancy new blog here. Though the Temple Bar Trad Fest is still a fortnight or so away, it may be time to note it in the diaries. A little sooner, Conor Byrne’s county gigs continue next week at the Button Factory with Kildare, and bejapers if it isn’t Christy Moore that’s the special guest this time. And another one for your diaries, while you have them out: the IFI is offering a day of free screenings on February 6th throughout the venue. Full programme details will be released on their website www.ifi.ie towards the end of this month. And here are the so-far sounds of 2010 according to the BBC: number one slot still open, any takers?
