Now that’s a way to spend a Sunday evening. The final day of the Oxjam takeover at the Oxfam Home store on Francis Street saw four acts perform in front of a large crowd, all making themselves comfortable on the various pieces of furniture spread around the store. Booka Brass Band kicked us off in their usual energetic style, followed by the intense guitar pop of Amidships. Star in the making Rocstrong channelled the sounds of the deep South, Africa and funk rock before the stripped down Come On Live Long duo of Rob and Louise brought the night to a beautiful conclusion. Thanks to all involved for their time and effort.
