Honey Beard is an Irish/Canadian Electronic Dark-Pop duo from Toronto, Canada. The band have been creating music since 2012 drawing on early influences such as Depeche Mode and The Doors. The band have built up quite a reputation for their frenetic live performances with edgy songs that tear apart typical pop arrangements while balancing dark synth with bright thumping beats.

Honey Beard released their debut EP “THOUSAND MILLION THINGS” in 2015 to much fanfare and have since been touring all over Canada in support of its release. The duo followed up a successful year of shows with a TIMA nomination (Toronto Independent Music Award) for best pop act for 2015. 2016 will be a massive year for the band as they prepare to release a follow up to their EP and a second summer tour including a short 2 gig stopover in Ireland in June.

BANK HOLIDAY SONNTAGS (DJs)

SONNTAGS (DISCO/HOUSE/PARTY JAMS)

[EVERY SUNDAY 11PM TIL LATE]

Upstairs @ Whelan’s

Our Ethos is simple. Quality music + Quality People = Quality Time

Sonntags is a weekly Sunday night party hidden away in the centre of Dublin’s Camden Quarter dedicated to only the best quality house, electronica & disco. Every Sunday for the last 3 years, the rotation of resident DJ’s Richie Breevil, Antonio O’Duibhir & James Kirwan have created the perfect Sunday night atmosphere to see off the weekend.

Situated in the dark, cavernous upstairs of the world famous live music venue Whelan’s (well…maybe not world but give me a break, I’m promoting here)

It’s the only dancefloor in the northern hemisphere with an open fire (this claim is also not verified)

Inspired by its Berlin namesake (Sunday evenings in the actual world famous Panorama Bar/Berghain club) with a full heated smoking area, a chill out bar & the tackiest disco lights you’ve seen since 1994.

“Hidden gem, serious tunes all night” Packie Bonner

“I got crowd surfed out the door” Michael D Higgins

“It was great craic until Michael D Higgins took my pint and crowdsurfed out of the place” Bono

And here listen… I’m not gonna lie to you, if it’s not your cup of tea there’s a shit hot blues band on downstairs.

Come and say hello, we’ll buy you a pint *

*No pint guaranteed, especially if you’re a melter.

KATE’S PARTY

It’s hard to quite put your finger on what genre Kate’s Party are. Originally formed as an all female acoustic 2-piece and drawing great influence from alternative rock music particularly from the 90s, the band soon expanded to include bass, drums and electric guitars and have since been compared to the likes of No Doubt and The Smashing Pumpkins. 

After releasing their EP ‘Back Down’ on Toast Office Records in 2012, the band did a string of successful shows around the UK and Ireland including a support slot for Teenage Dirtbags WHEATUS and another for Japanese legends Shonen Knife. Their album ‘Hollow’ was released in March 2014 and has received rave reviews as well as airplay on national radio.

‘this is a performer and writer with oodles of potential’ – Jim Carroll, The Irish Times

‘A simply captivating record, Rachael Lavelle’s music is an enigmatic one, shrouded in shadowy corners and ominous tones. Resulting in an engaging listen from start to finish.’ – Stephen White,The Last Mixed Tape

‘Lavelle’s incredibly powerful voice resonates wonderfully throughout this entire endeavour there’s not a weak moment to be found anywhere on this record.’ – Dave Simpson, Pure M

‘The two things that initially struck me listening to Rachael Lavelle’s Superman E.P. were, one, a depth of maturity in her lyrics, and two, I cannot adequately attach her vocals or sound to any predecessor, there’s a certain sense of the theatricality of Kate Bush, but not the sound.’– Remy O’Connell, The Best of Music & Film

‘The music of Superman is deep, dark and tense. You don’t listen to it, you get wrapped up in it. The weaving strings, the full-bodied chimes of piano and Rachael Lavelle’s soaring vocal all work to create a record that has incredible sense of “somewhere else” ’. – Stephen White, The Last Mixed Tape

Fresh from playing this year’s Whelan’s Ones to Watch festival, Rachael Lavelle returns to Whelan’s with full band to perform an intimate headline show. She has been casting spells around Ireland with her beautifully crafted and enchanting debut EP, Superman which received widespread plaudits in the press and on radio. Drawing from an eclectic mix of jazz, classical and pop, Lavelle creates a strikingly original sound.

Catching a performance of such burgeoning home grown talent is a rare experience: this is one not to be missed.

SPY FROM MOSCOW

plus guests

^ Upstairs ^

Talking about what he sounds like: ‘Someone I know came up with ‘choirboy grunge’ – which is insane and weird, but I kinda like it. When writing though I just like messing around with textures and tones – I put the vocal at the centre and work everything around it. That’s how I make sense of the process. And as long as it’s in tune I’m happy.’

SPY FROM MOSCOW is the moniker of alt-singer songwriter Declan Feenan. After working as a playwright and screenwriter for 5 years he decided to pick up the guitar again and write some songs. And the result is a blend of grunge guitar with heart-breaking lyrics.
After an 8 date UK tour he released his 3 track EP Little War in Autumn 2015. And now returns with his new single Somewhere In Ilfracombe.

SINGLE RELEASE

“Somewhere in Ilfracombe”, is a soft but explosive song about dealing with grief away from home: ‘It’s about someone who experiences loss and imagines themselves in a quiet village off the coast.’ Where’s Ilfracombe, and why?: ‘It’s a place on the north Devon coast. I’ve never been there but I sometimes surf with my friends down the road in Croyde. I’ve always intended to go to Ilfracombe, I just haven’t made it that far’.

Thinking about the release: ‘I’ve been living in London for 10 years but always wanted to play more in Ireland. The music scene has always been so strong back here, especially for singer-songwriters. So I guess it’d be nice to be a part of that, even in a small way. And as the song is about being away from home, coming back to release it feels like a nice thing to do.’“Unique, seductive and utterly addictive.” Music&Manxies

“Mesmerising…timeless” Music News

“A haunting voice that pierces the soul … a real class act.” PluggedIn-SwitchedOn

Young Earth are an alt-pop group formed in Late 2015. In that short time together, they have found their footing in the music scene of Dublin in venues such as Workman’s Club, Sin E and Whelan’s, each gig bringing them tighter than before with a sense of truly enjoying the sound theycreate.

Combining the sunny atmosphere of the Beach Boys with modern rock acts like Arctic Monkeys and Vampire Weekend, their vocal harmonies, shimmering guitars and sing-along choruses will leave a lasting impression in your ears.

“Tallaght slo-mo indie-pop newcomers Young Earth are a band well capable to knocking out killer harmonies and melodies” – Jim Carroll, Irish Times (On the Record)

https://www.facebook.com/Youngearthmusic/ 

 

———

Kicking Bird are a four piece band hailing from Dublin made up of male and female lead singers/guitarists, bass player and drummer, also bringing alluring rhythms to their songs with additional instruments from the harmonica, ukulele, banjo, glockenspiel and cajon which can only give you a small insight into how musically talented they are.

Kicking Bird have played festivals and music venues all across Ireland, including Electric Picnic, Knockanstockan, Canalaphonic, Co-Hear, Roddy Bolands, Whelans, Monroe’s, The Sugar Club,The Grand Social and Crane Lane Theatre, to name a small few.

“The Dublin alt country quartet’s self-titled EP opens its account strongly with the jaw-droppingly good ‘Nowhere To Die’. A bit spaghetti western, a bit mid-period Fleetwood Mac, the song has a barn-storming vocal and firmly states that they are songwriters with oodles of potential. The world-beating ‘Nowhere To Die’ makes the release more than worth the money.”
– Edwin McFee, Hotpress
