Cry Monster Cry and In Their Thousands

20130907_210012

September was a busy month, gig wise, and the start of 24 gigs in four months. What better way to start than with a double header in Whelans – and two great performances from In Their Thousands and Cry Monster Cry. I’d seen In Their Thousands at Arthurs Day Play on the Day, where they were the national winners. A chatty crowd detracted slightly from their set, and it was obvious that most were there to see the second act of the night – more fool them, as In Their Thousands are ones to watch.

Cry Monster Cry were well worth waiting for though. Despite a bad case of laryngitis, which lead to their gig the following night being cancelled, their slick brotherly harmonies and charming folk sound was a real treat. Definitely want to see these again.

The final of the Hot Press Guiness Play on the Day Final brought the winners of all the regional finals to Whelans for a head to head final. Protobaby, Hot Sprockets, The Calvinists and In Their Thousands all put on a great show, but the Donegal men were to go on to claim the crown.
