State’s Midnight Mass raises funds for War Child

It seems a long time ago now, but in reality it was only just before Christmas that our annual Midnight Mass took place at the Mercantile in Dublin. And a splendid night it was too – featuring some breakneck rock ‘n’ roll from The Pacifics, dark synth sounds from our overseas guests Kool Thing, an epic set from Come On Live Long, Bitches With Wolves putting the sparkle into affairs, a stunning showing from little xs with eyes (now officially our favourite Irish pop band) and Toby Kaar finishing the night in his usual dynamic style. Best of all, the gig raised €900 for Warchild Ireland – not bad considering it was a free show. Thanks go to all the bands and everybody at the Mercantile.

  • YAY – that’s great news, what a great way to start the Christmas celebrations. Thanks for having us!
