Yeah, would trip down after work myself, but I see they are playing in Belfast in a few weeks, so come to Butthead

It is most inconvenient for me to get to Dublin but I'm going to do it now! Where would you have to travel from?


I'd be coming from Galway but I'd have to tip up after 6pm and then drive straight back down after. I'd also have to find someone who likes Bellx1 sufficiently to come along with me. Also, realistically I'd have to travel the 25 miles into Galway city to pick up whoever eventually comes with and drop them back and then be up at 7 Thurs morning. But dammit if I find someone I'm gonna go. Knowing my luck I'll turn up at the box office and my name won't be there.

Living the far side of the Atlantic these days so unfortunately can't take the guys up on their offer directly :( Sending a friend along in my stead though. Roll on the North American tour!

Who else would I bring?! It's just like old times... I'm skipping class to go see the Bellies. But this time it involves driving approx 150 miles.

Rocky - do it! Between us we'll be increasing the carbon footprint of the entire population significantly!

Ya fuck it why not. I'm looking at a 450km round trip and no sleep for the night but I feel like this is something that has to be done. Now to find someone to come with. My bro is mad to go but he's only 16 sadly

Lord knows Oisiers... I am coming from Derry. Supposed to be in class until 3.15 but I may sneak off at about 12. Going via Meath to say hi to the folks and retrieve Hamish. We should meet beforehand though... power in numbers in case they don't believe us at the box office that we actually have tickets...

Found my person to go with so it's official. I'm going. I better not arrive at the box office to be told there's no tickets for me there. :oops:

Yeah imagine it was all a massive hoax! We'd all be standing there raging...

My essay is finished. I think you can actually pinpoint the point at which I decided I didn't give a crap any more and was going to rush through it to go to Bell X1 :D

I'm just thinking... we'll possibly all be close-by will we, all us bellyboarders? That'd be cool. Either way I'm excited now and hope I'll get up there on time.
