CARNAGE VISORS

Carnage Visors

Monday 7 March – Saturday 9 April | Rua Red, Tallaght

Carnage Visors, a collective exhibition showcasing some of the country’s pre-eminent artistic minds, aims to engage with one of thornier questions faced by modern artists and makers: is it possible to create work of genuine gravity within the global climate as it stands? Through a diverse, multi-disciplinary collection ranging from Richard T. Walker’s reflections within the landscape, to Juntae T.J. Hwang’s webcam experiments, Carnage Visors makes an optimistic, compelling argument for the significance and, crucially, permanence of art within a world of fleeting social media celebrity and round-the-clock news coverage.

BLEEDING HEART PIGEONS

Bleeding Heart Pigeons

Saturday 12 | Whelan’s | €10, 8pm 

The Limerick trio of Mícheál Keating, Cathal Histon and Brendan McInerney under the guise of Bleeding Heart Pigeons are released their debut record Is through Virgin records this year, and it’s full of high-drama acrobatics taking in the sprawl of Sigur Ros shot through with a touch of emo that their youthfulness demands. Check out our interview with the band here.

OKO TIM BERNE

OKO + Tim Berne: Irish Tour 2016

Saturday 12 March | Sugar Club | €16, 8pm 

For a week-long tour across the county’s art centres, the eclectic, exotic and electrifying post-jazz bandits OKO have teamed up with NYC-based baritone saxophonist and composer Tim Berne. In the downtown jazz world of Lower Manhattan, Berne’s kind of a big deal, sharing stages and bills with the likes of John Zorn and having his work released aficionado imprint ECM. Given that the show comes as the second last date of six gigs, we reckon Berne and OKO will be well acquainted with themselves, but given the pedigree and attitudes of all the musicians involved, it’s still likely to be a weird improvised ride. Tickets and info here.

Send Bort to Ethiopia/Cuba

Saturday 12 March | Sugar Club | €10, 11pm

This Saturday, a selection of the country’s most exciting DJing talent will be seizing control of Leeson street’s Sugar Club and as if that wasn’t enticing enough; it’s all for a good cause. Following his work in Palestine with the wonderful people at the charity Skatepal, all-round good dude, Baz McGinn, is off once again to furnish more far flung locations with killer ‘crete.  All proceeds for the evening go towards purchasing materials for builds run by Make Life Skate Life in Ethiopia and Community Collective in Cuba, both organisations that strive to expose young people around the world, regardless of location, means or gender to the joys of falling on your arse off a plank of wood with four wheels attached. Regardless of where you stand on sidewalk surfing hooliganism, the quality of the evening’s line-up is hard to question, with the likes of Dip, Lumigraph, Frank B, Wino Boys and many more playing. Early bird tickets are still available here.
