...MB '05 Tour: Day 76: travel to Dublin, Ireland
Today we went to Dublin, some by plane, some by bus (via ferry). Everyone was excited to return to Ireland, in whats only our second ever visit to this exceptionally cool and merry land. After arrival the band zoomed over to a small recording session at a local studio to work on a few necessary things while they had a chance. Later the requisite walking around happened, with various favorite spots revisited - Leo Burdock's, Wagamama, etc...

This night there was a cool show in town - The Pixies with Kings Of Leon and Teenage Fanclub, plus local act Turn, who are also set to open tomorrows Weezer/Nine Black Alps show. Weezer was invited down, though not all members could make it due to the recording session and general tiredness. Those who could make it reported that it was pretty epic. It must be like the ultimate festival for some of these Dubliners who have tickets to all the gigs going on here these days!
