Shameless plug: Thought you might be interested to hear that some friends of mine in the Dublin band Settler have been invited over to Chicago by “I Wanna Be Kate” tribute CD producer Thomas Dunning to take part in some shows around the city over Easter. Although no Kate songs will be performed (well, on stage anyway), the band will be involved in Tom’s famous Hoot Nite on March 27th in Schubas, the theme of the night is “The Cure vs Diana Ross”, so its battle of the big hair-dos! Those wanting to find out more about Tom’s tribute album (Kate loved his CD by the way, she said “I think it’s absolutely wonderful…”) go to this page. If you’d like to read more about a Dublin band on the up, read more about my Settler pals here. And finally don’t worry, while I’m away in Chicago The Duck will be here in case of any important updates. Just wanted to fill you in on an exciting site-related happening, many thanks again to Tom.
