Belsonic 09 - Panama Kings
Describe in a tweet: Local lads wasted on an empty, damp arena. Fair play for trying, though.
What went down: It's a comedy turn out for the Panama Kings - the initial gathering would barely fill Auntie Annies. Singer Niall Kennedy is greeting people personally from the stage as if they've just wandered into his living room. And it starts to rain pretty much the minute they start playing. Nightmare.
The Highlight: Them carrying on regardless and putting on a show. Half these songs, especially superb set finale 'Golden Recruit' need a baying crowd. Which is a good thing for the band in general, if not for their set today.
