Lena at the International Bar, Dublin

Submitted by admin

Vic Stathopoulos performed Lena at the International Bar, Dublin, Ireland on Monday 21st October 2013.  Check out the video performance below.

This is the first time I have performed original music in Dublin in a long time. After performing 'Lena' at Tootsies in Nashville in September 2013 I was inspired to perform live. This was the first time I played solo with guitar and no backing band. I felt nervous and was worried I might forget the lyrics when I went on stage.

I arrived at the International Bar at 10pm and signed my name to play one song. Open mic started at 11pm and I was fourth on the list. Before 11pm pre-booked artists were performing. These artists included a French Poet and comedy duo sing at cats (which I thought was catastic!).

I stood at the entrance of the bar most of the time because it was very warm and the small venue was full. I went up and down the stairs to the top a few times to get some fresh air, plus to practice my lyrics and check the tuning of my guitar. This is the first time I used my accoustic guitar live. Its a Cort guitar.
