Shout out to bands: Goldenplec’s Tea & Toast Tour is Coming Your Way


Our mates over at Goldenplec are much nicer folk than us and they’re doing a deadly thing for charity. As part of their 10th birthday celebrations (we didn’t even know the internet was that old) they’re doing an event called Coast to Coast – Tea and Toast to raise money for the very worthy Down Syndrome Ireland. The concept is this: on April 6th, Good Friday, they’re driving from Portmarnock to Achill and back and at various stops along the way they’re gonna stop for tea and toast and a one-song gig from a local band.

They’ll be recording each performance and sharing it on YouTube/Twitter/Facebook on the day – which makes it a great opportunity to plug yourself and get the word out about your latest gig/EP/album.

Interested? Musicy type? Wondering if you’re on their route?

Aidan Goldenplec [that’s his name as far as we’re concerned] says: “we will be looking for a band who can be at that location around that time on Good Friday to meet us for a 10 minute stop where we will have tea and toast and the band will play a cutback song for us either in the back of the car out from the boot. It’s very much guerilla gigging. There won’t be any power, just yourselves, your instruments and your voice. No messing.”

Their list of stops and the times they hope to arrive are after the jump…

8:00AM – Dunboyne from 8:00am (Aisling McWeeney)
8:20AM – Maynooth  (Maynooth shopping centre)
9:03AM – West Meath (Topaz Mullingar, West Meath motor group)
9:50AM –  Longford (Longford Shopping centre)
10:25AM – Strokestown (Entrance to Strokestown Park)
11:55AM – Castlebar, Mayo – (Topaz just past town centre)
13:18AM – Achill Island
15:45AM – Ballymoe, Galway
16:12AM – Roscommon Town, (Topaz / Supermac / Papa Johns)
16:46AM – Westmeath (Athlone) (Topaz entering town)
17:42AM – Offaly – (Topaz/Centra Western Relief Road)
18:22AM – PortLaois, (Gandon Court Topaz)
19:02AM – Newbridge, (Maxol Garage)
19:58AM – Portmarnock  (Hotel in area to finish, To Be Decided)

But wait, as they say, there’s more…

Aidan says of the final stop back in Dublin: “We hope to confirm a hotel function room and fit in a load of bands from Dublin right at the end and get everyone some tea and toast and have some lovely one song gigs from each band who appears. So we would love to hear from lots of Dublin bands, new and established to make the finale a party atmosphere”.
