Yes, I hope to be in the Sugar Club for the 10th,

Weekend Review,
Irish Independent, 10th Sept. 2011.
Ireland's 20 most influential women.
# 6. Joan Burton.

She overcame her bitter dissapointment at not becoming Finance Minister to throw herself whole-heartedly into her job as Social Protection Minister.
Joan ( 62 ) likes to unwind by reading Jane Austen and listening to Leonard Cohen.
Fionnan Sheahan , Political Editor, says :
" She has made all the right noises about welfare fraud and reforming the system". ;-)

Yes, I am afraid it happened. I have explained the whole mess to Carlowmike in a PM, but to tell it shortly: while moving a single message posted in a wrong thread to the correct one, we managed to merge the Sligo thread to Adam's tour thread. It was a bit complicated to get them back to two separate threads but finally it was done - we lost only 2-3 messages. Unfortunately there was no way to save the number of views, and the number cannot be updated or changed back in some way. - In the same way the number of views in Adam's thread started last night from zero.

Sorry Jarkko and Mick, I guess the mix up was my fault, I did not realise there was a dedicated thread for comments on Adam's concerts, apologies to all.

Thanks to bridger15 for sharing this with us, I am told Tony Palmer will be there ;-) ..
Leonard Cohen: Bird on a Wire (Irish Premiere) at The Model, Sligo,
Nov 24th


Leonard Cohen:Bird on a Wire (Irish Premiere)
Introduction by Director Tony Palmer

Dir: Tony Palmer
106 minutes, 1972, re-released 2010
The Model, Thurs. Nov. 24 at 7pm
The original film was thought to have been lost until more than 290 rolls of film in rusted cans were discovered in late 2009. The cans contained much of the original ‘rushes’ of the film, and importantly most, if not all, of the original soundtracks. In 2010, with Leonard Cohen once again at the forefront of popular music, Tony Palmer lovingly restored the film to much of its original glory. The film runs at 107 minutes, as did his original in 1972 and will include much that will make this the ultimate package for Leonard Cohen fans.

Tickets to Leonard Cohen: Bird on a Wire & Ladies and Gentlemen, Mr. Leonard Cohen: €10

Avail of our Sound+Vision Festival passes, providing complete access to all screenings and events.

1 week Festival Pass: €35

(Week 2 Wed Nov 23 – Sun Nov 27)

Full Festival Pass €60

Thanks BV. I always enjoy listening to Tony Palmer talk about Leonard Cohen and the saga of BOAW. He always seems to add something I had never heard before. It was well worth a listen and the Sligo based interview came through fine here in the US.

Thanks for the link.

Music Reviews.
Irish Times.
Fri. 2nd Dec. 2011.
The Ticket.
Eoin Butler's guide.
Leonard Cohen. Show Me the Place.
Columbia ***** (5 stars )
Kelly Lynch is the woman who allegedly stole millions from Leonard Cohen in the early 2000s.
In time, music fans may acknowledge the debt of gratitude we all owe her : were it not for Cohen's financial woes, the 77-year-old maestro probably wouldn't be recording and performing live today.
"Show Me the Place" is a bruised masterpiece in the vein of Tom Wait's "Down There By The Train".
We know who we have to thank for it, even if we don't say so out loud. ;-)
