HMV To Reopen Six Irish Stores?

Posted in Music, News with tags , , , , , on May 9, 2013 by Tickets There

HMVGood news for the cheap DVD and CD consumers as Hilco look set to provide a rescue package for six of the original sixteen Irish HMV outlets.

Stores in Dublin, Galway, Cork and Limerick might re-open if the filthy, nasty, miserable auld bunch of landlord scum agree to reduced rents in favour of supporting Irish jobs and less empty premises along Irish streets. Fortunately for Ex-HMV staff, Irish landlords have a history of being very open to reducing their preposterous rents.

It’s unknown currently which stores are likely to reopen, but it was reported a few weeks back that Dublin’s Henry Street premises was likely to open its doors once again.

Is this good news? Tickets There thinks so. Smaller shops and the bands they help still have a better chance than this time five years ago as large music retailers shift their focus more to games, movies and electronics. Also more jobs for the young and less empty shops on our streets.

The Riptide Movement – Still Keepin’ On

Posted in General Tickets There Blog, Gig Listing, IRISH NOISE!, Music, Music Video, New Music, News with tags , , , , , , , , , on October 22, 2012 by Tickets There

Dear bands everywhere – this is how it’s done!

The Riptide Movement are a band familiar to us all and well they should be. Along with a limited number of names (not starting any wars here), TRM are the epitome of hard work, performance and energy. They are a credit to the Irish music scene and spend every second they can promoting their band, making themselves sharper, song writing, rehearing, exploring new avenues of self-promotion, making videos and constantly pushing themselves higher and higher up the chain. When they do a tour, it’s not two shows, its thirty.  If they don’t have a gig – they busk. When they’re not busking they’re working behind the scenes – constantly and that work is now paying off.

The band are currently in India representing Ireland at the Rendezvous festival in New Delhi, which they’re capturing for Hot Press as their 2012 ‘Most Unusual Gig of the Year’ spot. When they get back, they start the task of promoting new single, ‘Without You’ from their second album, Keep On Keepin’ On that came out earlier this year. The promotion tour will take them around Ireland (including headlining shows at The Olympia, Roisin Dubh, The Forum and Dolan’s Warehouse) before they jet off to Berlin, Munich, Hamburg, Prague, Vienna and Amsterdam.  Irish dates can be found below and you can expect to see a review of their new single…..very soon.

Oct. 27th – The Slate, Cork.

Nov. 2nd – The Roisin Dubh, Galway

Nov. 10th – The Olympia, Dublin *Almost Sold-Out

Nov. 17th – The Forum, Waterford

Nov. 24th – Dolans Warehouse, Limerick

Nov. 30th – The Palace, Navan

Congrats to the Riptide and please – Keep on setting the bar for others. If all bands worked as hard as you, there’d be a lot less X-Factor in the world.
