I recently got a mail from Gearóid ó Dea asking if we would like his group P.A.L.M to run a music gig at the Village to raise funds for Wells for Zoe. This was a wonderful and exciting offer. Caitriona went along to the gig on behalf of W4Z and had a great night, enthused by the energy and support of the bands and the crowd.
Financially, it was a huge success and the lives of many poor rural Malawians will be changed forever as a result. For this we thank everyone concerned and involved in the night.
I have sneaked some information on one of the bands who were very involved with the P.A.L.M gig, KILLER CHLOE who were Signature band on the night
This up and coming local four-piece is gearing to take the Undergroung scene by storm. After a string of Dublin gigs, including The Village,Eamon Dorans and The Voodoo Lounge, the group are already creating quite a following. Their debut EP was released earlier this year and was very well recieved. KILLER CHLOE, one to watch in 2008.
