The band are not present but are projected onto a screen. The Walls perform "Bird in a Cage" from their forthcoming album "Stop the Lights" at the Temple House Festival, Sligo in Sept 2010. They've developed a two-man show that ingeniously features the full band without the actual musicians being present. It means they can do shows abroad where the budget doesn't allow for bringing the extra personnel. This is one of the first few gigs they've performed this way and they hope to travel to the US and Europe with it next year. The new album is a multi-layered affair, less guitar-based than their previous work, but featuring lots of synths, brass, mandolin and of course guitars. So performing this way means they can still showcase the songs as they are meant to be heard and the audience still get to see all the musicians involved. Not all the songs are performed like this. Some are stripped down to vocals, guitars or keyboards and percussion but there are always interesting visuals as well. According to Joe the show is "an ongoing work in progress where the only limits are your imagination".

'Bird in a Cage' is an autobiographical story of growing up in Dublin and moving to the west of Ireland as a young boy and the apprehension and finally the happiness that the experience brings.
