Sansara @ Hope FM, 20 Feb 2013

Sansara @ Hope FM, 20 Feb 2013Sansara were one of the bands I’d yet to have the pleasure of hearing live – no more after tonight. They perform four songs live (ambient acoustic), we have another from their first EP, and there is plenty of talk and laughter about their next upcoming release, videos made and making, a tattoo fund- and awareness-raiser, and their various gigs. The full show can be heard on mixcloud.

Krista Green @ O'Neills, 20 Feb 2013On to O’Neills where Krista Green is playing some tunes accompanying herself on ukelele. She’s later joined by Leo on tambourine as she plays out songs from her latest (live) album.

A quick trip to the Anvil for a catch up with Sansara after the show to sort out some further details. The open mic / grand jam is uninspiring so I’m not tempted to stick around and head back to O’Neills.

Blue Demon @ O'Neills, 20 Feb 2013Comedy duo Blue Demon are performing their last ever set of four songs as one of them is moving away up North. As its a celebration the rowdy juice has been flowing a bit making it more novelty than duo.

Si Genaro @ O'Neills, 20 Feb 2013Si Genaro is our penultimate act, rare for him to be at O’Neils on a totally Lost It Wednesday night as he comperes the Tuesday Night revolving Door Open mic night here. Leo again shares some of the songs with him. He’s on good form tonight, he’s also been roped in as compere also, so Leo introduces him with what Si describes as his best intro ever. I don’t really need to write about his music here, as he’s doing all the usual beat boxing, medleys / mixtures and amusing talk between the songs.

The last act are More Than Solitary – I apologise to Taff and Jack┬ábefore they go on as I leave for the evening, missing their set.
