In Photos: Ham Sandwich + little xs for eyes @ The Academy, Dublin (18.02.12)
Boisterous Kells rockers Ham Sandwich played their biggest headline show to date over the weekend in front of a capacity crowd at Dublin's Academy. Buckfast, confetti cannons and giant balloons all featured prominently, as did an impressive cover of Kate Bush's 'Running Up That Hill'.
The band's sophomore LP, 2010's White Fox, has just been reissued on vinyl, with a deluxe digital repackaging (featuring four live session tracks) set to follow before the month is out. They'll also be embarking on a nationwide tour in early March - check their official site for more details.
Support on Saturday night came from lower-case-obsessed locals little xs for eyes (how long before the rising Dublin outfit are packing out venues of this size on their own merit, I wonder?...). Check out Colm Kelly's shots of both bands in action below.
