anne maree barry says hi

I started this blog in 2007. No one had heard of The Wire and I was making experimental films that a select few saw. My initial tagline for this blog was: 'I write concisely. always. I'm trying to improve this - however, sometimes few words work better'. Then I found Twitter. However, I still post here once a week, so feel free to comment or just to simply say hii.

Hot 8 Brass Band
The Hot 8 Brass Band are playing in Whelans, Dublin on Feb 28th. The Hot 8 Brass Band are a New Orleans based brass band that blends hip-hop, jazz and funk styles with traditional New Orleans brass sounds. I was listening to Rebirth Brass Band's amazing track 'You don't want to go to war' featuring Souljah Slim on Diplo's Mad Decent Worldwide Podcast Episode 5 (New Orleans aint dead..it just got a limp) when it was suggested to me that I should see The Hot 8 Brass Band. Hot 8 Brass Band were propelled to wider prominence globally by an appearance in Spike Lee's 2006 documentary 'When the Levees Broke: A Requiem in Four Acts' and also by a version of Marvin Gaye's Sexual Healing. 

They also have been the featured band in an important relief project 'SAVE OUR BRASS' following Hurricane Katrina and the devastation wrought upon New Orleans. 

I think I can smell Summer.
