The 9th JD Set is to return to Dublin this Thursday evening at Whelan’s.
The Jack Daniels’ sponsored competition aims to find and promote unsigned Irish bands and give them a platform to perform and is also Ireland’s longest running competition for unsigned bands. To celebrate its return Tim Burgess of The Charlatans is coming to meet with unsigned bands in Dublin and Cork to encourage them to enter the competition.
Tim is going to be in Whelan’s this Thursday from 4-6 PM where he will talk about The JD Set and offer entrants advice based on his own experiences in the music industry. He will then travel to The Pavilion in Cork on Friday from 3-5 PM.
Live music is set to begin in early 2010. The Dublin and Cork heats are to be hosted in Whelan’s and The Pavilion respectively, in February 2010. Entries are being accepted from 19th October. For full details check out the website.
