Performance notes: U2 win the Harp Lager Talent Contest at the Savoy Cinema. The prize includes a chance to audition for CBS Records. This is one of the earliest appearances of the band as U2 (or "U2 Malahide") rather than Feedback or The Hype. Setlist is believed to be complete but the order is unconfirmed. "The TV Song" is an early U2 original named because the band felt it resembled the sound of the band Television; some reports claim U2 played an early version of An Cat Dubh at this show, which may or may not be what "The TV Song" refers to.

what they said
"A lot of punks reject us, and of course, as it is here, a lot of the hippies reject us because we’re new, so we have this peculiar audience, this cross-section. That’s why the name U-2 is ambiguous, it’s in between, like a tightrope we’re treading."
- Bono, 1979
