will be playing two shows in one night. That's right!! On
2/26, Moonspank will play one 30 minute set at Rory Dolan's
from 9-9:45pm. This is a benefit show for John Fitzgerald
- a fan and good friend of the band. John is currently trying
to raise money to support his new film about baseball in Ireland
Information for this film can be found @ Theemeralddiamond.com.
After that, Spank will be arriving at Burke's
to play their main show of the evening (Starting @ 11pm).
Like always, we plan to have an awesome evening and encourage
fans to catch both shows!!!
The Emerald Diamond is an independent documentary
about the history of baseball in Ireland. It's a great story
- like a documentary version of Rudy meets the Bad News Bears
- at times funny, at times sad, all the time about a bunch
of people who believed in themselves enough to overcome huge
There will be a Fundraising Show featuring five bands at Rory
Dolan's Bar on March 26. Proceeds from the show will go towards
completing the film. The original plan was to have the costs
of the film paid for by film grants in Ireland and the US,
but that hasn't happened. Every film grant and funding organization
in Ireland has refused to support the film because it is being
made by an American director. And every US funding organization
has passed on contributing to the film because most of the
filming is being done in Ireland.
It's the intention of the director, John Fitzgerald, to make
a film that benefits Irish youth baseball and the Irish National
Team by bringing their story to more potential benefactors
in the US and Ireland. The film is very close to completion
and the Fundraising Show will help achieve this goal.
