Charity show up on the podcast

The Longtails on stage
Part I of the two part footage from the charity gig at the sugar club (3rd August) is up on the podcast:
Just as a reminder:
A gig was put on in The Sugar Club on Friday August 3rd in order to raise money for Fighting Blindness. Paul Loughran from NEAR 90 fm and friend Joseph O Connor are climbing to Everest basecamp in October for Figting Blindness and this gig was part of their fundraising initiative. Three bands played on the night: Kill City Defectors, Deadbots and Longtails .....
It was a great night with all acts putting in great perfomances. They also put on a raffle to win a trip for two to see Prince in London. This was won by a Ms Roslyn Doran. Overall they raised 2300 on the night and have now raised 9500 altogether. They are aiming to raise 12000 in total and more if possible.

Also here is a little about Fighting Blindness:Fighting Blindness is Ireland’s leading charity promoting research to find therapies and treatments for eye disease. The charity also provides valuable support and counselling to those who are affected by degenerative blinding conditions. Fighting Blindness need to raise substantial funds to maintain their very expensive medical research programs and to continue to provide the invaluable support and information services to individuals and families.
