Stoneybatter skyline

Music documentarian Myles O'Reilly shot his classy new video of Anna-Mieke Bishop and her band a couple of days ago. It gives a relatively unusual view of Stoneybatter from up on the roof, during a sublime sunset. The music's great too.

Check out the full video out on Myles's website.

That reminds me: need more skyline stuff in next book.

The aul blog has already featured some of Myles's Stoneybatter-related handiwork before - his film of Ye Vagabonds playing in Walshes pub.

Anna-Mieke was also filmed recently playing at the nearby Grangegorman Community Collective. Though it's a much more rough-and-ready film than Myles's ones, the sounds and images give an idea of the atmosphere at the squat before it was evicted.
