"At these relatively early stages of a promising career, the evening’s energy was truly electrifying – and has this reviewer convinced that Pauric O’Meara is undoubtedly a star in the making."
Onstage, the lights at The Grand Social dim following invigorating opening acts by both Jacob and the Ordeals and St. Francis.
With their Tulips EP, and a recently released single, 'Return', Jacob and the Ordeals proved themselves to be a new act to keep in our sights. They were nothing short of passionate and intoxicating – and having put together a great performance for the intimate venue, they've left us all wondering what stage they will be gracing us next.
St. Francis took centre stage soon afterwards, with a well-organised set that energised the ever-growing crowd. Guitars and basses were traded off during a smooth transition, in preparation for the night’s main event, rising, homegrown star Pauric O’Meara.
The audience draw in close, awaiting the beginning of O'Meara's arrival. And just like clockwork, a series of excited shrieks and hoots arise in the back of the room, carrying with it the pop/rock singer as he makes a direct path to the microphone and kicks off his intoxicating setlist.
"This has been the best gig ever!" declared the singer/songwriter, beginning to close out the night. But before he could succeed in doing so, the eager crowd's insistence brought about an encore and secured them all an invitation to the coveted after party where the night's excitement would continue.
At these relatively early stages of a promising career, the evening’s energy was truly electrifying – and has this reviewer convinced that Pauric O’Meara is undoubtedly a star in the making.
