I had no plans for this weekend until The DJ Bambi Show on Twitter uttered the immortal words 'Any interest in a ticket for...' and I, after thinking it over for a millisecond, said YES!
The ticket was for Alex Gough in the Button Factory in Dublin. Now, I'd heard of Alex before, but if I'm being honest, I didn't know much, if anything about his music style. To make things interesting, I didn't listen to any of his tracks before I headed to the gig, so I walked in blind!
I won't lie, I did get a tad worried when a group of young ladies sat at the table next to me though... I wondered was this guy going to be an Irish Justin Bieber! (not that there is anything wrong with his music, I'm just not his demographic!)
I needn't have worried. To put it mildly, I was blown away, I really enjoyed his set. His singing style kinda reminds me of early Huey Morgan and there's a lovely bit of funk running through the music. The young ladies beside me? They loved it as they screamed and cheered along all night. The rest of the crowd (once again restricted by Covid regulations) seemed to really enjoy it, as did Alex himself.
So yeah, all in all, a great night out in Dublin again. Definitely keep an eye out for Alex Gough, he's going places!
Now, on to the photos:
