Culture Vulture at The Odessa

Just a quick note about my night…

Barry and myself went to the Odessa to Culture Vulture, a monthly night curated by Tony Clayton-Lea.

This month’s guests were John Cummins, Lisa O’Neill and Lenny Abrahamson, who did a Q and A.

Lisa’s set blew the doors off the room, it was lovely, charming and quirky, like the lady herself. We saw her a while back supporting Rodriguez in Vicar Street, and I fell in love with her song Elvis, I give you Irish Stew. Her between-song chats were great too, so engaging and fun.

John Cummins is the Irish Slam Poet Champion and an absolute legend. I believe he should be the poet laureate. His line about “Agenda Kenny” got a whoop last night.

Here’s John in action at the Brownbread Mix in 2010.

We had a great night, can’t wait to see who’s up next month.
