On their second last stop of the Chop Chop Pop Up Shop tour, Paul, Dave and Dominic entertained quite a large crowd in the back garden of Bridies Bar in Kilkenny. The trio played a wonderful acoustic set to those who bought their latest release Chop Chop. The set contained some songs from the new record such as Feint Praise, Drive By Summer and The End Is Nigh. There was also a rendition of fan favourite Flame and a banjo led cover of the Curtis Mayfield classic Move On Up.
The sun soaked garden was filled with people enjoying the fantastic mini set that the band played. For many, the highlight was meeting the band afterwards in the garden to chat and get their copies of the album signed. “We really enjoyed it today.” said vocalist Paul Noonan, “hopefully the weather will hold up for the Iveagh Gardens show on Saturday too” .
Bell X1’s new album Chop Chop is available in Tower Records, on iTunes and on Spotify.
