'A Gig For Haiti' at Crawdaddy, March 27

Vyvienne Long, The Last Tycoons, Rob Smith and Sweet Jane all on the bill

The gig is the brainchild of Dublin indie musician Rob Smith. "I just felt I had to do something," Smith says, "and I thought to myself I may aswell put on a good show, raise some cash and have a super night in the process."

The bands will all be performing special acoustic sets, with stand up comedy from Aidan Bishop and Shane Langan.

Admission is €10 with all profits go to Oxfam Ireland to help aid in Haiti.

Doors are 8pm.

The show will presented by Near FM's Jacqui Carroll.

So far best known as Damien Rice’s cello player and the provider of quirky cover versions, Long could well be a star waiting to happen. Birdtalk is a good place to start. The EP’s lead track ‘They’re Not Waving’ tries to balance drama and pop and nearly succeeds, while ‘Never Leave You’ has a downbeat, almost rap feel. While the two cover versions included (Pharrell Williams’ ‘He Wants To Move’ and the Flaming Lips’ ‘Yoshimi’) are both great, you still feel that they’ll still end up overshadowing Long’s own material, which would be a shame.
