CSS in Carlow
Cansei de Ser Sexy, which is Portuguese for ‘tired of being sexy’ are a Brazilian band from Sao Paulo (they are also referred to as CSS). They played a couple of gigs in Ireland and I went to see them in The Music Factory in Carlow a couple of weeks ago. The band is made up of five girls and one guy and they played their asses off for more than an hour and a half. They had great energy and enthusiasm which had a very positive affect on the crowd. The lead singer is pretty mental in a good way and even dived off the stage at one point and was carried by the crowd for a while. The guy in the band played drums for most of the songs but swapped with one of the girls to play guitar for a while during the performance. The girl that he swapped with was a really good drummer. If there is such a thing as reincarnation I think I’d like to come back as a drummer in a band like CSS. The Music Factory is a good spot and seems to attract lots of good bands. Sometimes it’s nice to get out of Cork and experience music elsewhere. Cheers to V-girl for doing all the driving and for having tissues in the car when I had an incident with a freshly whipped ice-cream cone. Ratgirl, it was similar to your incident with an ice-cream cone in Florence!
