From the 12-15 of June, Foggy Notions has organised the fantastic “Future Days” Festival. Split between the Andrew’s Lane Theatre and Vicar Street, the festival is showcasing some of the top alternative artists with a focus on genre defying, unique artists covering a wide variety of styles and tastes. Thanks to promoters Foggy Notions, WE HAVE 2 DOUBLE PASSES to give away for the big night on Saturday 14th featuring Dan Deacon, Deerhunter, Jape, White Williams and High Places. All you have to do is leave a comment to this post with a caption for the picture of the insane Mr. Deacon below, alternatively send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
UPDATE: competition closed, congratulations Karen and Chris!
June 12. Andrew’s Lane Theatre. 8pm.
MATMOS Featuring: J Lesser & special guests: SI SCHROEDER
Californian duo Matmos have done it all, from lecturing at Harvard on sound art to playing for homeless teenagers. They’ve scored the soundtracks for five gay porn films, one pinball machine, and one NASCAR television commercial. Screw Bono singing from a roof, these guys are the real deal when it comes to innovation.
Listen to: Polychords
June 13. Andrew’s Lane Theatre. 8pm
LOW & special guests: ATLAS SOUND + THE HOLY ROMAN ARMY – followed by DJ DAVID KITT
Low’s minimalist, slow music helped a whole genre know known as “slowcore”. However their skills in creating atmosphere and mood are not just limited to their own brand of music as they have been known to do crazy covers of more popular artists. Support includes the excellent Atlas Sound who released the critically acclaimed “Let the Blind Lead Those Who Can See but Cannot Feel” this year.
Listen: Low, Breaker
June 14. Vicar Street. 7pm
DAN DEACON * JAPE * DEERHUNTER*WHITE WILLIAMS * HIGH PLACES
This is the big one and we’ve got tickets for you! This show is an incredible one-off opportunity to catch five of the most exciting new artists in the world on the same bill. The one man carnival-of-fun Dan Deacon makes his third visit to Dublin. If that wasn’t enough, Deerhunter bring their mish mash of ambient punk noise rock to the bill and somehow Jape, White Williams and High Places are squished into what promises to be an amazing night.
Listen to: Dan Deacon, Snake Mistakes
