This was our third time playing The Academy and again we sold it out. Dare we say it was our best set at the Dublin venue yet? We promised lots of new things (after all we had a Best Irish Live Act award to defend) and hopefully we delivered.
No pressure, honestly, none what so ever!

We did get some Buckfast backstage, although it was children’s size.

The support act was ace!

Charlotte played the second room (and she was also really nice!), but the excellent This Side up were on warm up duties with Konmak X Marty, the #BuzzersBursary, winners also on hand to set the crowd up nicely.
Then we got ready to do this…
That Was most excellent 😎😎😎 @KingKongComp

If you haven't experienced the insane energy of a @KingKongComp gig then you haven't lived. Best live act going in my book

@KingKongComp savage night in The Academy.Just as good and better than EP. Broken but worth every bit of it. Best act to come out of Ireland
