Some tasty giggage on the way courtesy of the fine folk at Foggy Notions…
Having stuffed Andrew’s Lane Theatre to the gills earlier in the year and knocked your socks off with last year’s (dare we say) album of the year Microcastles (4AD)…
Atlanta’s awe-inspiring DEERHUNTER bring their silky drones and razor-blade pop for an intimate stop-off at their favourite Dublin venue: Whelan’s this Sunday August 23rd.
We're told there are 'some' tickets left available from tickets.ie, City Discs, Sound Cellar, WAV & Ticketmaster outlets nationwide. They are priced €17 plus booking fee. Doors: 8pm
“A massive, psych-heavy, art-damaged five-piece, and one of the most inspired new bands we've heard in quite a while.” – Pitchfork, 9.2
“Microcastle could be 4AD’s best release in well over a decade.” – MOJO
“Mr. Cox sings about time, perception, crucifixion and murder, while the band maintains its gift for realizing just how far a small idea can be carried through repetition and accretion.” – New York Times
Not only do they have the highly-anticipated return show of Deerhunter, Foggy Notions also present…
THE TALLEST MAN ON EARTH
Sweden’s Kristian Matsson is The Tallest Man on Earth – a finger picking virtuoso who plays inspired Dylan-esque folk songs.
“His frantic strumming and front-porch poetry recall everyone from the Carter Family to Lead Belly to, most noticeably, country bluesman Mississippi John Hurt.” – Pitchfork, 8.3
“His melodies are as sturdy as mountain ballads, with intricate finger-picking and chords strummed precisely enough to ring with selected overtones.” – New York Times
Catch him plus special guest Valerie Francis play Whelan’s, Sep 11th, Doors 7.30pm.
Tickets €13.50 plus booking fee from WAV Box-Office (Lo-Call 1890 200 078), City Discs, tickets.ie & Ticketmaster outlets nationwide.
