Have you seen this man?
Rumour Number One: Frank Black, ahead of his Dublin show tonight in Vicar Street, will be playing an acousitc set in St Stephen’s Green Park at 5pm today. I don’t know about you, but rumour or no rumour, I’m going to head down to the park and follow The Pixies fans til I find Mr Black.
Rumour Number Two: Mongrel magazine has ceased publication. I didn’t see a January 2008 issue in any of the usual spots (Laser, Tower, Cafe Irie) and have been informed by an informant that my second favourite free magazine (first favourite being Totally Dublin) will no longer grace our Dublin streets and make us laugh with its ridiculous record reviews. Their website was last updated in late January, and there isn’t a peep about operations shutting down. Anybody know anything about this?
*update* Rumour Number One was definitely true, and thanks to my new friend David Maybury, we now know that Rumour Number Two is (thankfully) false. Those pesky mongrels will be back on our streets before the month of February is up. Yahoo!
