    The “Wood & Wire” tour is go!

    Irish metalheads Therapy? will be bringing their Wood & Wire acoustic tour to Whelans, Dublin on 25 April 2017 offering their fans a rare chance to see the band in a different context. The set will consist of ‘acoustic/unplugged’ re-workings of songs from their extensive back catalogue.

    Frontman Andy Cairns says:

    “We in Therapy? are proud and excited to announce that we’ll be taking our music on the road in an acoustic setting. This will be a challenge for us and hopefully a chance for our fans to hear the melodies, guitars and rhythms in unique settings. We’ll be working on songs from across all our albums and in intimate environments we’ll be able to give insights into the stories and influences behind them. We’d love you to join us in helping make this a celebratory experience”

    Outsiders from day one, Therapy? have drawn upon the attendant feelings of alienation, frustration and dislocation for strength and inspiration across their remarkable 26 year career, crafting a dark, idiosyncratic worldview which has garnered the group a reputation as one of the most uncompromising, creative and individualistic bands of their generation.

    2015’s Disquiet, produced by Tom Dalgety (Royal Blood / Band of Skulls / Turbowolf), extended this proud legacy, and proved the trio of Cairns, bassist Michael McKeegan and drummer Neil Cooper are in incendiary form. The band’s fourteenth studio album, but first recording for new label Amazing Record Co., Disquiet, has been widely hailed as a worthy sequel to their iconic album, Troublegum, and featured on numerous Albums of the Year lists, with Metalhammer proclaiming: “Therapy? (have) released a batch of killer songs that sound like an all-new Greatest Hits collection.”

    “Whelans First Ever Regular Trad Session”

    Believe it or not Whelan’s has never hosted a regular trad session.

    No one knows quite why but what we do know is what we want ‘Call The Dancers’ to achieve.

    There’s a clue in the name. Trad geeks may recognise ‘Call The Dancers’ as a battle cry issued on ‘I gCnoc na Graí / In Knocknaree’ a live album by Tony McMahon and Noel Hill from 1985 that captures the spirit and passion we humbly hope to take a stab at generating.

    Call The Dancers is where Rónan Ó Snodaigh and Eoin Dillon and friends will share the tunes they love.

    They’ll be sharing them with each other and with the dancers, drinkers and groovers who cross Whelans threshold each Tuesday for the next three months.

    This will be blistering. It will ooze the excitement of our glorious music and bring it to the world with the force it deserves.

    Call The Dancers is for and by people who adore trad and can’t get enough of it.

    We’ll be updating who the guests are when we know.

    Sometimes we will know in advance, sometimes we won’t.

    ‘AN INTRODUCTION’ EP TOUR

    LAURA RYDER

    ^ Upstairs ^Facebook event

    Mr. Billy Fitzgerald is a charming, witty, and self-deprecating champion of 90s R&B rhythms, folksy acoustic guitar, and remarkable harmonies that are informed by the likes of Prince, Beck, and Eels. He’s releasing his debut EP “An Introduction” on April 14th with a national tour including the launch show at Whelans, Dublin.

    In a previous life, he fronted alt-pop band The Dead Flags and played on stages all over Europe, from Ireland’s ‘Sea Sessions’ to Germany’s ‘Eir Mit Speck’ as well as multiple appearances at Hard Working Class Heroes. He released Top 30 singles in Ireland, the acclaimed “Gentlemen’s Club” album and received heavy rotation on BBC Radio One, 2FM, Today FM and RTE Radio One. It was wonderful, but nothing lasts forever.

    Between then and now, Billy found himself searching to find a sound that represented him and his relationship with music. He spent three years in the studio – completely alone – writing, recording, experimenting and exploring.

    The outcome is a concoction of old-school drum machines, down-to-earth acoustic guitar, joyous harmonies, and catchy melodies. Billy’s trademark upper-register and sweet, sweet falsetto is layered on top resulting in a liberated take on solo songwriting. Additional drums are provided by Dennis Cassidy (Mixtapes From The Underground, Selk) but after that every instrument, every voice and every sound has been created, performed and produced by Mr. Billy Fitzgerald.

    “An Introduction” is the forerunner of Billy’s first long-player due later this year. The EP will be released through the usual digital services and in physical form on the tour.

    “A tour de force… brimming with energy interspersing songs with some witty banter” – State Magazine

    “Charismatic and engaging… Billy Fitzgerald blends infectious rock songs with a fantastic voice.”  – Hot Press

    Burlesque and bravura served up with a big helping of the funkiest New Orleans second-line grooves you’ve ever heard. From Bunk to Monk through Skunk, Junk, Punk and Funk. Anything goes!

    A tireless performer – More than a hundred and fifty gigs a year, every year, as well as studio sessions, theater performances, voiceover and film work.

    He has played, recorded and toured with the likes of Linda Hopkins, Wendell Brunius, FFF, Phoenix, Chilly Gonzales, The Hot 8 Brass Band from New Orleans, Bernard Lavilliers, Black Minou and Liz McComb. He has played mainstage at the biggest festivals worldwide – Glastonbury, Paleofestival, Transmusicale de Rennes, Francofolies, Montreal Jazz fest, Lincon center NY, Kennedy center Washington DC, Barbican London, Pinkpop, Pukkelpop, Sonar Barcelona and Roskilde just to name a few.

    He played, wrote and recorded the Charlie Hebdo magazine X-mas album and he organised the music, played and sang at the paper’s editor Stéphane Charbonniers’ (Charb) funeral in 2015.

    One of his songs (Ooh là là Paddy”), sung with Brisa Roché, was recently used in the soundtrack of a major Hollywood movie (“Behaving Badly “directed by Tim Garrick with Selena Gomez).

     

    He played the longest running Gig ever in modern Paris history, 20 packed out years at The Coolin, St Germain before the venue was bought up by Apple to open a store. He has since successfully moved the whole night over to O’Sullivan’s at 63 Avenue Franklin D. Roosevelt where he alternates Sundays with his favorite protegé, Swedish singer Ellen Birath..

    He recently played Estragon in a French language production of Waiting for Godot at the Procenium theater, Paris.

    DAVE MORRISSEY BAND

    https://www.facebook.com/davemorrisseynews/

    Dave Morrissey is a seasoned songwriter based in Portlaoise now and currently working on new material from his home studio for his second album.

    Following the release of his debut album ‘Bring Out The Light’ in 2012, Dave has toured extensively throughout Ireland and abroad covering ground in the UK, USA, Australia and Europe.

    Dave has supported many big Irish acts such as Imelda May, The 4 Of Us, Jack L, Sharon Shannon, Mundy and most recently Aslan.

    In 2016, Dave began attending music college in Bimm Dublin where the current band formed and continues to go from strength to strength on the live stage. The sound is big even though the songs are written on acoustic guitar. There’s vast arrangements here and everything from the bare acoustic ballad to full on Rock n Roll on stage!

    THE INK-LINGS

    https://www.facebook.com/EoinKeelyMusic/

    The Ink-lings are a Dublin based modern, folk band led by songwriters Eoin Keely and Briana Horan. Their songs are lyrically driven, emotive and thought provoking. The melodies and lyrics are interwoven with influences stretching from Irish folk to The National, Bon Iver, The Civil Wars and The XX. The songs tell tales of love, loss, morality and friendship.
    The sound swells from stripped back acoustic guitar to three part harmonies accompanied by piano, bass and mandolin. Their single “Star Wars”, recorded at Little Wolf Records, will be released in May 2017 and the band are in the process of recording their first album

    NEW CALIFORNIA REPUBLIC

    New California Republic are a Dublin based americana band with an indie/alt-rock feel, or alt-country and sludge as they like to call it. Having spent two years in Toronto, ON. frontman David Singleton immersed himself in the Local Alt-country scene there becoming a founding member of the Sad Boys Glee Club, upon his return he reunited with former Half-State bandmate Chip McCann to start a new project taking influence from his time in Southern Ontario. With former Social Circuit Drummer Mikey Corrigan behind the kit, the traditional country sound was ripped away for more of an upbeat indie feel, this was paired with the spangly pop guitar stylings of Keith Kavanagh and Emer McDermott on fiddle to round out the indie/country sound.

    THE WINTER PASSING

    ALBUM LAUNCH

    plus support

    _ Main Venue _ Facebook event

    The Winter Passing have always fearlessly followed their own path, an approach fueled by their distinctly collaborative nature. Every member brings a unique set of skills, influences, and perspectives that coalesce into a sound that is difficult to categorize but easy to love. On their fittingly titled new EP, Double Exposure, the Irish quartet take this approach to a new level, expertly layering their many inspirations for the sake of one goal: to create music that moves listeners

    On their debut LP, 2015’s A Different Space of Mind, The Winter Passing created an infectiously raw mix of punk energy and indie rock quirks that garnered critical acclaim. When the time came for a follow-up, the band sought to create a record that built on that adventurous spirit and further utilized each member’s individual musical sensibilities. The band recruited legendary producer J. Robbins (Against Me!, The Promise Ring, Texas Is The Reason, Jets To Brazil) to help execute their vision in the studio, and the result is an incredibly dynamic release that effortlessly bridges the gap between anthemic punk rock melodies and the spunky complexities of ‘90s alternative. While its moods and tones are many, Double Exposure is an impressively cohesive release with a uniquely Irish spin.

    The Winter Passing have never shied away from intensely personal lyrics in their work, but on Double Exposure the band write with an even deeper vulnerability. Predominantly crafted by brother and sister songwriting duo Rob and Kate Flynn, the EP’s lyrics form a loose concept around the use of multiple starkly personal perspectives being seamlessly woven together to make a unified narrative. This approach creates a universal quality to very personal songs that follow the sibling’s parallel struggles with the physical and mental instability caused by intense anxiety.

    More than most bands, The Winter Passing is a sum of its parts, and Double Exposure is the result of that cooperation at its finest. Each member’s distinctive contributions blended together to make an incomparable portrait of a band coming into its own.

    ‘Double Exposure’ is our April 21st via 6131 Records (US) & Big Scary Monsters (EU)

    THE DUBLIN BLUES CARTEL

    – PLAY THE FRONT BAR –

    10:30pm – FREE ENTRY

    Dublin Blues Cartel formed a year and half ago, after a long association. They began playing every Monday in the Leeson Lounge, playing mostly a version of New Orleans R’n’B with a classic rock twist, sandwiched with swing, Rock’n’Roll, Soul, Funk, Blues and rap of all eras. Their sets consists of radical reworkings of well known R’n’B standards which segue into lengthy improvisations that are one minute, blues jazz crescendo, the next a funk dervish, one minute a pyschedelic freak out, next a country boogie twist, the next a dark ascension of Wagnerian majesty.

    Featuring some the best musicians Ireland has ever produced, Dublin Blue cartel are:

    James delaney (James has played with Sharon Shannon, Van Morrison, Paul Brady, Chuck Berry, Andrew Strong)

    Pat Farrell: Lead Guitar (The Business, Red Peters). Pat had shared stages with B.B. King, Jeff Healy, John Primer and Carlos Johnson

    John Quearney: Bass (Donovan, Heavy Waits, The Business, Left right n Centre,)

    Noel Bridgeman: Drums. Noel was a founding member of Skid Row, one of the most important Irish rock bands, whose members included Gary Moore, Phill Lynott and Brush Shields. He has also recorded with Van Morrison, Steve Earle, Sharon Shannon and has played with Mary Black and many other legendary Irish artists.

    Mick Pyro is a member of Republic of Loose who have had three top ten albums in Ireland, one reaching number 2. Mick has supported U.2., The Roots, Ian Brown, The Neville Brothers, Guns n Roses, Snow Patrol and the New York Dolls. He has Co- produced a track for Sinead O, Connor and has appeared with her on stage several times. He has recorded with Camp Lo, Styles P (I like Music) and U.2. (Tribute to Ronnie Drew)

    Sunday the 30th of April sees Niamh Regan headline her first solo show in Dublin’s live music venue Whelan’s.

    Special Guests on the night include the band Saramai and the multi instrumentalist/songwriter Anna-Mieke.

    NIAMH REGAN

    http://www.niamhregan.com
    https://www.facebook.com/niamhreganmusic

    Niamh Regan is a 22 year old singer, guitarist and songwriter originally from Galway, ‘who catches our ear with a sweet, pure folk voice bursting with potential’ – The Irish Times

    Her genre of music can be described as Alt pop/Folk/Singer-songwriter.

    ‘Regan’s voice has the inflections of UK folk music singers like This Is The Kit, to a lesser extent, Laura Marling combined with the gasping rasps of Karen Dalton. It’s a timbre that is commanding and wise, that pushes vowels around in interesting ways. You can detect a Nick Drake influence on the music too.’ Nialler9

    After a successful summer of Festivals in 2016 including Body&Soul Main Stage at Electric Picnic where, ‘’Crowds gathered – all of whom seem to have plenty of eyes locked and ears perked for the offerings.’ – State Magazine, She now releases her EP having worked and recorded with producer Alex Borwick from New Zealand. On the 30th of April, Upstairs in Whelan’s she will launch this well anticipated work.

    ‘One thing is for sure, we’d love to hear more.’ – Folk Radio UK

    ‘For Irish folk singer Niamh Regan, the future has never looked better.’ – Pure M magazine

    Those Teenage Dirtbags are back! Wheatus play Whelan’s on May 1st. Tickets on sale now from Whelanslive.com

    What if you really REALLY loved your part time job? …but, what if it didn’t pay enough? Well then you may be in Wheatus.

    It’s a special time for music. Not too much of it sticks and when it does well, it usually isn’t everyone’s cuppa. “…we really don’t run into people who don’t like Dirtbag, including us”, Wheatus frontman, producer, songwriter Brendan Brown quotes, whilst fiddling with a vacuum tube that reads “Made In West Germany”. It seems that Wheatus do indeed still love playing their multi-­‐ platinum, ubiquitous 2001 classic, “Teenage Dirtbag”.

    “I grew up idolizing Rush & AC/DC. Bands that last forever…One of the fears I had when “Dirtbag “kicked off was that it would get old quick or be received as a fad…I was wrong to worry about that. It feels new every night. I think that’s because it’s hard to play correctly, but what the hell do I know?”

    It has not been an easy go for Brown & crew. They scrape recording & touring budgets together by selling last year’s gear on ebay. “It’s an interesting paradox that people won’t buy music but they still buy the stuff to make it and that we can carry on that way…together, we found a way forward. I still can’t believe it started 15 years ago though…that’s hard to imagine for a song that continues to be renewed. We owe a debt to that album and to the people who remember us.”

    So yes, at least one band from before the days of iTunes & Spotify have found a way forward …and forward they come, on a full tour of the UK, Ireland & EU playing songs from their 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th 5th, 6th & 7th Albums!

    The Circle Sessions is a not-for-profit performance collective based in Dublin, established in February 2014. We are known embracing the individual’s creative talent and nurturing through advice and respect, in small intimate venues.

    In its short 3 year life, The Circle Sessions have already staged events at Electric Picnic, Body & Soul, Scrobarnach and the Northern Ireland Mental Health Arts and Film Festival, not to mention weekly events in The International Bar (Dublin) and The Harbour Bar (Bray).

    We are delighted, with the help of IMRO, to be able to bring to Whelans a selection of our ‘best bits’ in the third of a series of larger Dublin showcase events; having already hosted similar showcases in The Sugar Club and The Academy.

    For our acts, this is a perfect chance to push themselves forward on their journey of performance; for us, it’s a great chance to push the boundaries of our inclusive space and open us up to a wider audience.

    — — — — —

    So, here’s who we’ve got coming up!

    – Natasha Helen Crudden (Punk Poet)

    It would be fair to say that Natasha is not everyone’s cup of tea. But merely because she’s most people’s rocket fuel, with a side of hard whiskey. Expect a 240v ride through the seemly and not so seemly aspects of human interaction.

    – Joshua Dowling (Singer/Songwriter)

    A BIMM student with a perfectly delicate vocal and 200 yard stare. Could be accurately likened to someone who rhymes with mozier.

    – Tommy Keyes (Singer/Songwriter)

    (Noun) Ivory Tinkler. Tommy’s wealth of songwriting and performance experience is unrivalled at circle sessions. Watch out for a skilfully crafted intro and transportation back to your formative years.

    – Bobby Burke (Poet)

    A self-confessed stargazer, Bobby is Circle Sessions’ answer to Frost, delicately probing human reaction to nature and the most important of life’s little questions.

    – Meg LaGrande (Singer/Songwriter)

    Canadian by birth, but more Irish than all of our other acts put together. An orchestra of one with a passion for traditional music that it is nothing short of infectious.

    – Charlie McAuley (Singer/Songwriter)

    Where poetry meets music, literally. Famous at Circle Sessions for his poetry introductions to his balllads, Charlie will have his whole band on hand to add the perfect depth to his musings.

    – Liam Oragh (Singer/Songwriter)

    Composer extraordinaire and winner of multiple awards, Liam brings his quirky style and the energy of a newly finished album.

    – Sean McComish (Singer/Songwriter)

    A catchy loop-tastic act just back from a recent tour of Austria. More layers than an OAP on pension day in January.

    – Clare Brennan (Spoken Word)

    An English and Drama Major straight out of Michigan. Clare helps her audience to criss-cross the Atlantic with her in spellbinding fashion.

    – Justin McCann

    A Circle Sessions Stallworth with more talent in his little fingers than most have in their whole bodies. Justin drives a piano led band through jazz and blues with emphasis on African rhythm. Interested yet?

    Facebook event

    Martin Creed was born in 1968 in Wakefield and grew up in Glasgow. He learned violin from the age of three, changing to piano and guitar as a teenager. Having been unsure whether to study music, art, English, psychology or architecture he decided to apply to art school, believing that you could do all those things there. He attended the Slade School of Fine Art in London between 1986 and 1990. Soon after graduating he began producing musical compositions alongside his visual work. Over the years he has continued to work across many different media. In 1995 he released the album, ‘Nothing’ with his three-piece punk band, Owada. Since then he has worked under his own name. In 1999 he released his album, ‘I Can’t Move’, with Art Metropole, Toronto. The title song was used in the TV programme, ‘Weeds’.

    In 2001 Creed won the Turner Prize and moved to Alicudi, a remote island near Sicily. Over the years he has exhibited, talked, and performed music all over the world. Creed has composed orchestral works for the Birmingham Symphony Orchestra (2008), Hiroshima Symphony Orchestra (2009) and the London Sinfonietta (2012). Creed’s music for elevators (the ‘singing lift’) is permanently installed at the Royal Festival Hall, London, as well as at the Ikon Gallery, Birmingham, and at the Van Abbe Museum, Holland. In 2009 Creed composed and choreographed a show of music, dance and talk featuring classical ballet dancers performing onstage with his band. Premiered at Sadler’s Wells, London, it has since travelled to Utrecht, Brussels, Edinburgh, New York, Chicago and Kyoto.

    The London 2012 Olympics opened with ‘All the bells…’, Creed’s Work No. 1197, written for the occasion. In the same year Creed released the album ‘Love to You’, which collected together songs that had been in progress for the last decade. This was closely followed by ‘Mind Trap’ (2014), which combined orchestral works, rock music and gospel, recorded during a year-long residency at the MCA Chicago. His latest album, ‘Thoughts Lined Up’ (2016) was recorded live on tape in a small studio in Brixton, London, with an enlarged band that included flute, saxophone, classical singers and lap steel. The songs were developed during a tour of solo acoustic gigs and talks around New Zealand, Seoul and the UK. Since the release of the album Creed and his band have played at music festivals and events around the UK and Europe.

    Many of Creed’s songs are accompanied by his own films and videos. A retrospective of his audio-visual works was exhibited in 2016 at the Park Avenue Armory in New York. Alongside his films the show featured a troupe of roving musicians playing music live in the gallery and a series of cabaret performances by Creed and his band.

    In summer 2017 Creed will be performing at the Edinburgh International Festival throughout August.

    ‘A burst of pure delight….a deceptively serious collection of hooks that snag the imagination long after it’s gone.’
    — David Quantick, Q Magazine

    ‘The tunes are catchy, punk-folk-minimalist amalgams that parody pop music by increasing the simplicity and repetitiveness of much of it, and use and abuse language brilliantly.’
    — Roberta Smith, The New York Times, USA

    ‘His unmistakable voice and deceptively simple lyrics reflect the intensity of subject matter.’
    — Karen Wright, The Independent, UK

    ‘Creed managed to bring to the audience the curious, personal sense of awe that accompanies all of his work.’
    — Ross Devlin, The Student Newspaper, UK
