Today First Music Contact (FMC) revealed the lineup for their 2013 nationwide tour and it packs a serious punch. The six gigs will host Daithí, Funeral Suits and Le Galaxie, as well as a different local opening band at each venue. To be in with a chance of being one of the opening bands, all you have to do is head over to your Bandcamp and check out the ‘Opportunities’ section of your dashboard.
The six dates look something like this:
Thursday November 7 – Roisin Dubh, Galway
Friday November 8 – Dolans, Limerick
Saturday November 9 – The Pavilion, Cork
Thursday November 14 – The Spirit Store, Dundalk
Friday November 15 – Gigstarter (Vote for your area!)
Saturday November 16 – The Workman’s, Dublin
The 5th night is a bit different, on the FMC Tour website, you have the opportunity to pledge to buy tickets so that the gig will be hosted in your local area! You have to pledge the money to buy tickets, but will only be charged if you offer the winning bid.
Tickets are €10 and supposedly available from entertainment.ie, tickets.ie and the respective venues, but so far I’m having a slight problem locating the tickets so I’ll update this post when I know any more!
In the meantime, have a listen to Le Galaxie’s new single Lucy Is Here to get yourself in the mood for FMC Tour 2013!
