Review: The Riptide Movement – Live @ The Academy 2, Dublin (March 5th 2011)

Posted in Gig Review, IRISH NOISE!, Music with tags , , , , on April 7, 2011 by Tickets There

A month! That’s how bloody long it’s taken us to knuckle down and tell you how good The Riptide Movement were at the Academy on March 5th. Whoever said Tickets There was a lazy blog owes us a serious apology. With speed like this we may even be considered for expulsion from the Irish music scene we hold so little presence on.

Aside from the delays, blurry memories and drunkenness that was ensnared us at The Riptide’s gig in March, we are happy to report that they rocked the place to it’s core. Not only that, but they managed to out play, out last and upstage the Go Team who were holding court in the venue’s main room on the same night. Having missed the opening acts of the evenings, Tickets There and a completely packed out Academy were treated to an hour and a half of excellently performed blues rock from one of Ireland’s brightest hopes in guitar rock for 2011. There was the hits from the forthcoming album including Hot Tramp and new single Keep on, Keepin’ On as well as a sizeable chunk of material from their début, What About The Tip Jars. There was an orchestra, there was crowd participation. Hell, there was even attempts at crowd suffering when things really heated up.

Without going into half fictional details due to the whole beer, lack of notes and goldfish like memory, we can honestly say it was one of the best Irish shows we’ve been to in yonks. The band’s practice of playing live every five seconds is ensuring their sound is delivered as good as any seasoned band and their songs are getting better by the day. With gigs beginning to exceed expectations in every way, you can bet that The Riptide Movement is a name you’ll be hearing a lot more of over the next few months.

….but no matter how good they are, we will never encourage them or any other Irish band to play the same stage as The Kings of Leon, no matter how good of an opportunity it is! Damn the KOL to hell!

The Riptide Movement – Keep On, Keepin’ On (Single Review)

Posted in Gig Listing, Music, News, Single Review with tags , , , on March 1, 2011 by Tickets There

The Riptide Movement are back with a new single from their forthcoming debut album….(no title yet, excuse the lack of press J). Keep On, Keepin’ On follows their highly successful debut single, Hot Tramp that stormed the airwaves late last year.

Keeping their standard blue grass feel, the band has produced another tobacco chewing, spittoon of Cajun rock. This time the cut throat rock feel has been toned down but the feeling of Americana is still there and the band’s sound can be heard expanding with each note.

An excellent number that deserves as much attention as you can give it. The album is finished and coming out this year so keep an eye on Tickets There for updates because this is one you don’t want to miss.  

If you want to get a taste of the new record, make sure you head down to see the lads live in The Academy 2 this weekend.

There’s two shows so whether you’re a young folks who can’t shave yet @ 14:00 (under 14’s) with special guests The Boxing Plot & The Competition followed by a late show (with drinkies for all you over the hill, drunken silly folk….myself included) @ 20:00 with special guests Leaving Las Vegas & Powderhorse

Tickets are priced E10 for both shows and there’ll be free CD’s on the day!

Congratulations to The Riptide Movement

Up and coming rock Bois, The Riptide Movement have released the official video for their new single, Hot Tramp. Before you ask, no the girl from the singles cover doesn’t make a cameo (big sigh). Fear not, you’re still left with a tune that’ll smack the pants off ya.
