Culture Notes

CMC’s plans for Culture Night unveiled – technophiles take note!

Justin Carroll’s group Togetherness perform in The Back Loft on Sat 19 Sept. I’m not in Dublin that weekend but it should be a great gig with Sean Carpio on drums, Dave Redmond on bass and Hughes Mayot on sax.

size2shoes are going from strength to strength and about just launched a “mini-website”, The Vault, featuring tracks, interviews, free downloads and loads more. I really like these guys after seeing them support Julie Feeney in Crawdaddy for her album launch. They’re gas lads, check it out – you might even learn a bit of beatboxing from Moley…

I joined artists network called Art Review but am still trying to figure out how it’s going to benefit me… More on this as soon as I figure it out…

Unique performer Dave Flynn is featured on two new releases – his own CD of contemporary traditional Irish guitar available for purchase here, and his guitar music also features in a publication called Contemporary Anthology of Solo Guitar for Five Fingers of the Right Hand. I haven’t had a chance yet to listen to the CD yet but if Flynn’s live performances are anything to go by it should be an excellent listen.

On Thur 27 Sept The Clonmel Junction Festival presents Dulsori in Chadwicks. “Their energetic, elemental performances are raw and passionate affairs as the world’s most enthralling drumming troupes. Dulsori never fail to thrill and excite.” – sounds like great craic and it’s very reasonably priced at €15 for adults and €5 for children. Call Premier Music on 052 6129811 for tickets!

    I joined ArtReview as well. Not sure what I’ll get out of it, or be able to contribute. I wish I had a way to import feeds fro your existing blog. Because I don’t think I could manage writing there as well.

    I think it’s a place for artists to share their work. I uploaded some recent collages, mainly just to see how the whole thing works.

    It’s a really active community, and like most it would take commitment to get/give enough to make it worth the time.

    Looking forward to seeing you on Culture Night!

    I don’t think I’m going to get to everything I want to. It finishes so early… This is my list.

    Hey Heather,
    I know what you mean about Art Review – it’s seems like a great resource but I find the pages so busy, I’m not sure what I’m looking at to be honest! I like clean lines. Especially late at night when my contacts start playing up! ha!

    Culture Night wahey! Of your list I’ll def be heading to the Model, check out the SLAM expo on Castle St also and taking some pics of Sliglow. I also really want to catch the Beautiful Unit’s pop-up gig. Must find out where it’s going to “pop-up”!

    Check u Friday!
