Things are moving swiftly along at The Medicine Sessions HQ, situated some miles up in th Knockmealdown mountains. Surrounded by a thousand pieces of paper, not enough biros and fashioned only with very low quality 1MG broadband (thanks Eircom), Vick manages to actually organise something! She sits back in delight, secure in the knowledge that the first show will be stunning, and the second show will be just as good and even the show after that is looking like it might be a stonker (please kill me if I ever use that word again).

Ahead of schedule and all as everything is moving though, it became apparant that some form of run through had to be undertaken. So, a cobbling together of a few friends, some guitars, leads, mics, PA, extension leads, a camera and an ipad was done. It would be the first time The Medicine Room was viewed at night, with the fire lit and the first time the PA was given a spin in the room.

A few pints later and niggles were logged.

1: Lightbulbs way too bright.
2: Dangly thing over the performance area needs to come down.
3: Ipad built in mic is not going to be able to handle live audio.. (need help with this dilemma)


1: The acoustics are fantastic!
2: The fire is fecking gorgeous.
3: The room looks amazing.
4: There is no hardship about going to the bar downstairs, thanks to trays.
5: Mike the landlord has even started doing pizza, so you can get your dinner at the Sessions too.

All in all, Vick and The Ronald are feeling pretty chuffed with themselves.

Don't worry, they'll be more audience than this on the night!
