    MOOR MOTHER

    (Don Giovanni Records)

    https://www.facebook.com/MoorMother/
    https://twitter.com/moormother
    https://moormothergoddess.bandcamp.com/

    Moor Mother is the viscerally charged output of Philadelphia based interdisciplinary artist, Camae Ayewa. Her music is often harsh and strange, projecting both the cathartic anger of punk and the expansive improvisatory spirit of Sun Ra. Using a variety of machines, field recordings, and analog noisemakers, Ayewa constructs fractured, cacophonous waves for her words of punishing pertinence to ride.

    As a musician performing under the name she has toured in Europe and the U.S. at numerous festivals, colleges and universities sharing the stage with King Britt, Islam Chipsy, Claudia Rankine and Bell Hooks. As a soundscape artist she has had work featured at Samek Art Museum, Metropolitan Museum of Art Chicago, and Everson Museum of Art.

    Her latest album, Fetish Bones, was released through Don Giovanni Records in September 2016. The album features 13 songs conceived and recorded in Camae’s home studio and it is an album intended as a form of protest and as form of time travel — a collection of sounds that are events themselves, telling stories rich in history about the journey that brings us to today and the future we are creating. Fetish Bones is not an album meant to help you forget. It is made so that you will remember the injustices that we bear witness to and participate in.

    Ayewa is also a renowned poet and author of a forthcoming poetry book, also named Fetish Bones, and a member of Black Quantum Futurism, A Collective which has recently released its first book, Black Quantum Futurism theory and practice Vol. 1. BQF has presented in Copenhagen Perspectives on Time Conference, Ferguson is the Future at Yale and Afrofuturism Now festival in Holland. Camae is a 2016 Leeway Award recipient and 2016 Blade of Grass Fellow.

    In addition to all of this Ayewa is also a core member of radical spiritual jazz collective Irreversible Entanglements who released one of the truly great records of 2017.

    To summarise: miss this show at your peril.

    JONI is originally a classically trained violinist whose musical education and sound straddles the divide between the organic instrument and the electronic bass world. Joni’s naturally soulful singing style is combined with electronic beats and smart lyrics to make a sound all of her own. She has worked with many prominent Irish producers across many diferent genres such as Eomac, Deviant, T-Woc and Major Grave. Her debut single ‘Running’ was featured on BBC Radio 1, and appeared on Nialler9, Disco Naivete and Dazed and Confused.

    Over the last 15 years SUNKAN FOAL aka Dunk Murphy has been of Ireland’s most prolific and prodigious electronic composers with a vast back catalogue of startling high quality including releases on Planet-Mu, Black Acre, the Fear, Acroplane, Front End Synthetics among many more. In recent years he has become something of a self-run cottage industry releasing album after album on his own Countersunk label as Sunken Foal, The Natural History Museum (with Carol Keogh.) and last year’s superlative ambient offering as Minced Oath.

    A true red and white travelling songwriter, Pat Maloney has performed a thousand times in the last few years all over Canada, the United Kingdom and the United States. He’s a casual strummer who sings in a rich baritone, stomping away and whistling like no other. Three full length albums deep, Pat’s catalogue is diverse in character & feel. A committed genre hopper, his music is inclusive and free of pretension. The one thing his songs have in common is that they all tell stories. Real stories, with real heart and a healthy sense of humour. His favourite bartender once said his voice makes her want to sip a nice bourbon and fall in love. He told her he would add that to his next bio.

    FIELD DIVISION

    _ Main Venue _

    American folk/roots pop singer-songwriter Josh Rouse has announced a date for Whelan’s in April 2018.

    You don’t have to work hard to enjoy Rouse’s music. His songs present themselves to you with an open heart, an innate intelligence and an absolute lack of pretension. They are clear-eyed, empathetic and penetrating. Without pandering, they seek to satisfy both your ear and your understanding. The verses draw you in with telling detail, both musical and thematic, and the choruses lift and deliver. They resolve without seeming overly tidy or pat.

    Josh Rouse was born in Nebraska, and following an itinerant upbringing he eventually landed in Nashville where he recorded his debut Dressed Like Nebraska (1998). The album’s acclaim led to tours with Aimee Mann, Mark Etzel and the late Vic Chestnut. The follow-up- Home (2000)—yielded the song “Directions” which Cameron Crowe used in his film Vanilla Sky.

    “Every time I’ve made a record, I’ve tried to make it different from the last one,” says Rouse. “I always became fascinated by a different style of music. But at the end of the day, no matter how eclectic I try to make it, it’s my voice and melodic sensibility that tie things together.”

    His most recent release, The Embers of Time, was one of his strongest—self-described as “my surreal, ex-pat, therapy record.” Charles Pitter astutely noted in Pop Matters. “The critics may long for drama and scandal, but The Embers of Time often demonstrates that a simple life could be for the best.”

    “Some Days I’m Golden All Night”

    Robert John Ardiff is best known for his work as part of the Choice Music Prize nominated Come On Live Long. In a quiet period for the band he decided to write and record an album of his solo work. The album entitled ‘Between The Bed and Room’ was hailed by the Sunday Times as ‘a record of wistful wee hour gems’ and by The Last Mixed tape as ‘a distant sounding take on the indie-folk genre awash with texture and depth.’. Following on from his sold out show in The Grand Social in January, Ardiff is delighted to bring his full band show to the intimate environs of Upstairs in Whelans. His debut album “Between the Bed and Room” is out now. His latest single “Paint Your Nails” can be found here;

    “Ardiff’s venture into a solo project will not just be a compliment to his other work, but a noteworthy collection in its own right”. – The Thin Air
    “A textured, melodic and warm offering; ‘The Fall’ is a testament to Ardiff’s notoriety as a songwriter and performer.” – Golden Plec

    Five songs from Ultan Conlon’s last album ’Songs of Love So Cruel’ were included in the award winning film ’Songs for Amy’ which starred Sean Maguire and was released in 2014.

    ^ Upstairs ^ Facebook event

    Derry alt-punks The Wood Burning Savages are proud to announce a headline show Upstairs at Whelan’s to celebrate the release of their long awaited debut album ‘Stability’.

    With pulsating riffs and a sharp political edge, they are often compared to Manic Street Preachers, Future Of The Left and Queens of the Stone Age.

    The band has been lauded for their frenetic live shows, each night serving up a full-blooded cocktail of breakneck guitars and frenzied anthems. With each track The WoodBurning Savages share gritty real life tales of disillusion and indignation, giving a voice to a generation more marginalised and divided than ever before.

    27th April 2018 will see the release of the band’s highly anticipated debut album ‘Stability’, produced by Rocky O’Reilly (Touts, Cassels, exMagician) in Start Together Studios, Belfast, and mastered by Robin Schmidt (Wolf Alice, The 1975, Jake Bugg). Described by frontman and singer Paul Connolly, the album is “a collection of songs about a working class furious at years of empty promises”.

    Over the past few months The Wood Burning Savages have played a string of shows supporting fast rising rock acts The Amazons, VANT and Fangclub, alongside a hometown show with cult Irish guitar heroes And So I Watch You From Afar.

    Having played the BBC Introducing tent at Glastonbury, the band have went on to play riotous sets at festivals throughout Ireland and beyond, performing in Scotland, Poland and Germany. They tore the house down with two shows at Reeperbahn 2017, were selected to play Whelan’s One’s To Watch 2018 festival, and were hand-picked by Jesse and Sebastien from Death From Above to support them on the Irish leg of their European tour 2018.Their music has even been embraced by the world of wrestling with Philadelphia grappler ‘The Product’ David Starr selecting ‘We Love You’ as his entrance theme!

    “In Paul Connolly they have one of the next generation’s great rock frontmen.” – Tom Robinson, BBC Radio 6 Music‘The best band to come from Derry since The Undertones.’– Daily Mirror

    ‘Northern Ireland’s best live band!’ – Hot Press Magazine

    ‘They absolutely slay it. ‘ – Phil Taggart, BBC Radio 1

    The Wood Burning Savages are: Paul Connolly (Vox & Guitar), Dan Acheson (Bass), Michael Woods (Guitar) & Elliot Finlay (Drums)

    THE DUBLIN BLUES CARTEL

    – PLAY THE FRONT BAR –

    10:30pm – FREE BEFORE 10:30PM

    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)

    20 MILLION SOCIAL MEDIA VIEWS

    2 X NO.1 HIT SINGLES

    After 2 of the biggest hits from the past 2 summers, ‘Takin Over France’ and ‘There’s Only One Conor McGregor”, Mick Konstantin brings his first ever live
    performance to Whelan’s on April 29th.

    In the space of 2 years Mick Konstantin has built up a huge following, on the back of his two mega viral hits. Now with the recent releases of “Insta Generation” and “Up and Over They Go”, that have also amassed hundreds of thousands of views, Mick is finally starting plans to take to music full time, and it all begins with this gig on the 29th of April.

    Konstantin musical career had humble beginnings, busking on Grafton Street, learning his trade the same way so many before him had done. He first shot to
    fame with “The Ballad of Copper Face Jacks”, a song about the infamous Irish Nightclub that struck a chord with thousands around the country.

    A year later, ‘Takin’ Over France’ was written, a tune for the Irish Football team and their fans in the Euros in France. When this was recorded live in Bordeaux by
    Pundit Arena and posted on Facebook, it had built up over 3 million hits in the space of a few hours. By the next day, the song had become viral all over Europe.
    On the back of the legendary Irish travelling support, Mick went on to record the tune back in Ireland a few days later. It stormed the charts, reaching Number 1 in
    the Irish iTunes charts that very day. Konstantin was rewarded for his efforts with a trip back to the Euros for the Ireland and France game a week later.
    The following summer, no one would have predicted what was in store for Mick.

    Topping the previous summer’s tune would be a serious feat, but he managed just that. On the 2nd week in August he released “There’s Only One Conor McGregor”, a song which would receive international acclaim. The subject of course being the biggest boxing fight of all time, Conor McGregor vs Floyd Mayweather.

    Millions and millions of views and streams followed worldwide, as did Interviews with the likes of Sports Illustrated, stations in Australia, South Africa, UAE and all over the US. Again, the song reached No. 1 in Ireland for weeks, but also made the top 20 in the UK, many European countries, and Australian Charts. But by far the most exciting part of the experience was when McGregor himself heard the song, and loved it so much that he flew Konstantin over to Vegas, put him up in the same hotel as his family, and gave him 2 tickets to the fight itself. Incredible!!

    Since this experience, Mick has being hard at work, writing and planning for a musical career. And finally the time has come, for him to set about being a full time
    musician. With two releases this month, which have been greatly received, this is the next chapter in his story. The very first gig of many. So don’t miss out!
    Whelans, 29th April, here we come!!

    METZ has just announced a show at Whelan’s, Wexford Street on May 1 st 2018.

    Tickets priced €17.50 inclusive of booking fee go on sale at 10am this Thursday, December 7 th via Ticketmaster outlets and www.ticketmaster.ie

    METZ is inarguably one of the best live bands around, and this incredible footage proves it. Watch them deliver blistering performances of the politically-charged Strange Peace standout “Mr. Plague,” and “Eraser,” the A-side from their split Three One G/Sub Pop single from 2016, filmed live during their European tour in Paris at Le Trabendo on November 21st, 2017 by La Blogothèque for ARTE Concert.

    METZ’s 2017 tour dates in support of Strange Peace resume Wednesday, December 7th in Seattle at Neumos and continue through to December 15th in Austin at The Mohawk. The band will see support from labelmates Moaning (Dec. 7th-15th) and Cherubs (Dec. 15th).

    The band have also announced a new, European headlining and festival tour for 2018, which begins April 19th in Amsterdam at Paradiso Noord and ends May 5th in Leffinge, Belgium at De Zwerver. The 2018 trek will bring METZ to the Netherlands, Luxembourg, Italy, Germany, France, Ireland, and the UK. Tickets go on sale for these shows Thursday, December 7th at 10 am GMT/11 am CET.

    Recently, METZ delivered a mind-altering visual for “Drained Lake” from Strange Peace. Directed by Shayne Ehman (who also directed the band’s video for “Cellophane”) the piece highlights nothing less than the transient nature of time and space, through cutlery and kitchen wares.

    Strange Peace is available now on CD / LP / DL / CS worldwide (except in Canada) from Sub Pop [link here]. In Canada, Strange Peace is available from Royal Mountain Records [link here].

    What people are saying about METZ’s Strange Peace

    “Recorded with Shellac’s mastermind Steve Albini, Strange Peace is an album that doesn’t need to be explicitly political to make a statement about our current chaotic climate. The opening track, “Mess of Wires,” gallops out of the gate like a malfunctioning industrial robot, a tangle of mechanical riffs and Edkins’ oddly infectious chants. The band’s ability to inject melody into the weirdest of places is most striking on “Cellophane. ” Slightly more laidback than the usual METZ song, it’s closer to a garage-rock anthem than a skin-peeling punk rager, and Edkins’ refrain of “How will I know? / How will I know?” is designed to lodge itself in the brain of the listener like some insidious implant….cathartic rather than hopeless — an exorcism of nervous energy at a time when it’s direly needed.” [First Listen] – NPR Music

    “Strange Peace is more – more intense, more melodic, more brutal, more confident.” [4/5] – DIY

    “With Strange Peace, METZ have created an album that still largely has one foot rooted in the best of their past, but sees the other stretching forward into a future that is just as riotous. Long may it continue.” [8/10] – The Line of Best Fit

    “Laden with hypnotic riffs and Alex Edkins’ delightfully coarse vocals, the album has a basement-to- radio quality. METZ maintains the relentless punk energy from their first two albums, but with a more accessible play-through; Strange Peace could serve as a comfortable introduction to noise punk….Born out of political defiance, punk rock is a necessary retort at this juncture; it can’t be dead, especially if METZ has anything to say about it.” – Stereogum

    “Hardcore fans can rest easy knowing that METZ haven’t skimped on the nitrous- fuelled angst that has inspired legions of us to smash windows with our faces since 2012.” – Under the Radar

    “Strange Peace is an album that just sounds great from front to back, consistently knocking it out of the park with heavy guitars, concrete drums, and basslines that threaten speaker systems everywhere.” – Northern Transmissions

    “The band’s third album, Strange Peace, is very much like its first two, and that is a good thing. Each is single-minded in its purpose and methods. There are no ballads, no songs that are quiet or long or contemplative. Instead, there is a constant search for a frequency that is thrilling and a commitment to it.” [8/10] – Popmatters

    “Strange Peace is as raucous and fun as you want a METZ record to be.” [4/5]- Dork

    “The Toronto-based trio METZ have incorporated harmony into their heavy sound on their third full-length. They shift away from all-out abrasion, adding color to their eruptions.”- Pitchfork

    “With the aid of his friends Chris Slorach and Hayden Menzies, who make up METZ’s colossal rhythm section, Edkins and his guitar have never sounded so cunning, confrontational and, yet, so compellingly uncertain.” [9/10] – Exclaim!

    “It’s hard to imagine where METZ can go after pushing their sound and skills into the red zone as they have on Strange Peace, but with their third album, they’ve left no doubt that they’re one of the most singularly powerful rock bands in North America, and you ignore them at your peril.” – [4/5] – All Music

    “METZ has a habit of keeping their listeners waiting for new music, but when Strange Peace is the final product, the wait suddenly feels justified. The quality of songwriting on this album might not only be the best that METZ has ever done, but it’s also one of the better noise rock records of recent memory.” [9/10] – Glide

    JigJam are a multi-award winning quartet from the heart of the midlands in Ireland. Blending the best of traditional Irish music with bluegrass and Americana in a new genre which has been branded as ‘CeltGrass’, their onstage energy along with their virtuosic musical ability has captivated audiences throughout the world. “Here’s an Irish band that’s going to impact the world as hard as Clancy Brothers or U2 if they get only half a chance.

    “Jamie McKeogh, Cathal Guinan and Daithi Melia all hail from Tullamore, Co.Offaly with Co. Tipperary born Gavin Strappecompleting the quartet. All four members grew up immersed in Irish traditional music and culture which is reflected by the band collectively achieving over twenty All-Ireland titles at Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann competitions. They have now developed their own unique style of music influenced by American Folk music whilst staying true to their Irish roots. Described as ‘The best Irish group so far in bluegrass’ this sharply dressed outfit deliver an energy-fuelled, foot-stomping live performance. All multi-instrumentalists, JigJam interchange between banjos, guitars, fiddles, mandolins and double bass onstage which creates an experience which is pleasing to both the eye and the ear. JigJam have recorded two studio albums to critical acclaim and have been compared to the Punch Brothers by the European Bluegrass Music Association. JigJam have made a huge impact on the Irish American circuit performing at all major festivals including the world-renowned Milwaukee Irish Fest as well as touring various parts of theUK and Europe. ‘The words sparkling, innovative and infectious come first to mind’ when you witness your first JigJam show. Miss this band at your peril.

    Dynamic frontman, actor, singer, songwriter and trombone hero, Paddy was born and bred in Dublin, Ireland and buttered in Paris. A prolific songwriter, his show is 100% original songs

    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.
