Saturday 4th March - Hot Cops

RRIC in association with Paper Trail Records presents Hot Cops (NI) + Thumper + Shrug Life & Chinese Newspaper. Belfast alternative rock trio Hot Cops have been at this band thing since 2013. A fine job they’ve done of it too. Following plays from BBC Radio 1 and 6 Music, the Belfast based trio played the Introducing Stage at BBC’s Big Weekend Festival, as well as supporting The Front Bottoms and The Orwells. Drawing influence from the likes of Deerhunter, Pavement, and Cloud Nothings, the young group have shaped an original sound normally unavailable to those at such a young age.

  • Reviews:

    Belfast three-piece band Hot Cops draw their inspirations from raggedy indie and grunge dirges. Live, they are beamed from the original era with withdrawn stares and loose clothing. On record, it’s all angst-driven slow rock with spiralling Pavement-esque melodies.Nialler9

    Hot Cops are often compared to heavyweight bands such as Parquet Courts, Pavement, and Cloud Nothings. However, to compare the young trio is a gross injustice to their originality. State.ie

Wednesday 15th March - JARROD DICKENSON (AIKEN PROMOTIONS PRESENTS..)

Texas born, Brooklyn resident Jarrod Dickenson is to release his new album ‘Ready The Horses’ on March 10th 2017. Storytelling is something of a Texas tradition. Tall hats and even taller tales are woven into the fabric of The Lone Star State, and Jarrod Dickenson can spin a yarn with the best of them.

    JARROD DICKENSON
    The Grand Social, Dublin
    15 March 2017
    NEW ALBUM READY THE HORSES OUT 10th MARCH 2017

    “An incredible talent” – Janice Long, BBC Radio 2

    “Dickenson has a superb, expressive voice…” – Country Music People

    “Brilliant songs” – Cerys Matthews, BBC Radio 6 Music

    Album two for the sharp dressing and soulful pickin’ singer-guitarist serves up slices of country blues hotter than Texas Toast, whilst still being able to calm the waters of the Rio Grande on heart-wrenching acoustic numbers familiar to fans of his first full length. Jarrod embodies the originality and style of a bygone era with vintage dress hats and traditional southern sensibilities. The laid back writing found throughout ‘Ready The Horses’ is reminiscent of Gram Parsons, and Jarrod’s vocal flair could best be described as a young Johnny Cash, or Tom Waits before all the smokes and bourbon.

    Genuine country albums are not complete without tales of cowboys and corporate greed, and Jarrod is a hand at depicting the struggles of the working man. All the while, he also proves his versatility as a writer by using his own colourful narrative as a backdrop to pen intimate ballads detailing the pitfalls of love and the constant struggle to be the best version of one’s self.

    All tracks on the album were recorded with the core band live onto 2” tape as his musical forbearers would have. From the recording Jarrod anecdotally recalls, “recording to tape produces a much warmer sound, and the reels we worked with happened to have been previously used by Paul McCartney and Roger Daltrey. If you think about it, in a roundabout way I managed to get them to sing on my record!”

    Cutting his teeth for 10 years on the Texas and Nashville circuit, Jarrod has most recently supported The Stylistics and Jools Holland on UK tours. He embarks on his own UK & Ireland dates to support ‘Ready The Horses’ in March 2017, including a date for The Grand Social, Dublin on 15 March 2017.

    Tickets priced €15 go on sale this Thursday 9th February at 9am through www.ticketmaster.ie & usual outlets nationwide.
