    I assumed this gig was on in the wurohease until I turned up to find the place empty. I thought I had gotten my dates wrong but I saw a poster in the bar saying that the gig was upstairs. I have never seen upstairs as packed as it was for this gig. Luckily I found a spot just inside the door with a view (and a seat!) just before Fionn went onstage.The last time I saw Fionn in Dolans he was in the wurohease and there was a big crowd, so much so that the gallery upstairs was open, so I can’t understand why they put him upstairs on Sunday. I do recall that the crowd on that night was quite young too, however I was surprised at the amount of general chit chat and noise on Sunday as usually you could hear a pin drop at one of Fionn’s gigs.Apart from that, I enjoyed the gig and the new songs sounded good – I’m looking forward to getting my hands on the new album!
