Gooday there, Sinkerz from Ozzie band Hat Fitz and Itchy. We have played Cork twice in the last couple of years at the Cornerhouse.
Can anyone who has seen the band please contact me to suggest a bigger venue for our planned return on May 18th 2008.
Crane Lane Theatre Late Bar is by far the best music venue in Cork. This is just round the corner from Counihans Bar [near the GPO]. Good size stage and a brilliant dancefloor. As well as the main function room there are two other bars, and a smoking garden so there's a place for everyone here.
The Whiskey Bar is now open and their upstairs function room is also perfect for your gig. This pub used to be The Phoenix and is on Union Quay [near City Hall].
- the Old Oak on Oliver Plunkett Street
- Clancy's on Marlborough Street
- FredZ on Parliament Street
These venues all run band nights and other than the Savoy - [an old theatre/cinema which can hold gigs for about 200 people] then all the other places I know of are smaller even than the Corner House.
If you still come up blank after that - contact either "whazon.com" or "peoplesrepublicofcork.com" Both websites are great for venue/event information and you can e-mail them with questions.
You may remember me from your Corner House gig - Loved the CDs I got from you - on my Laptop so with me everywhere.
Feel free to ask silly questions - I'm good with them.
Happy to do any research you think might help you sort out the gig.
Did I mention I used to do band promotion years ago? lol
Keep on Rockin'
