Fionn Regan at the Sunset Tuesday, was at Sonic Boom Monday
Ballard got the first part of a double dose of Irish songwriter Fionn Regan‘s vist to Seattle at Sonic Boom Records Monday evening. The store’s aisles were largely filled with a college age and younger crowd for the five song set which stuck to his latest release and included the much lauded “Be Good Or Be Gone.” His album The End of History is up for a Mercury Prize (a big UK prize), and after getting familiar with the album it’s no wonder.
Lucky you he stopped by KEXP at noon on July 30 for a live performance, so check the archive for that time if you want a taste. He’s playing the Sunset in Ballard Tuesday night along with Death Vessel. The Sunset seems like the perfect small, intimate setting to really appreciate Regan. Anyway you should be there. The detail’s once more.
