STOMPTOWN BRASS :: Fri 10th March
Doors 8pm Tickets €10/12.50  
Stomptown Brass, three years old now, began when a group of like-minded brass players, known to each other from crossing paths with the likes of Trinity Orchestra, Hozier, The Riptide Movement, Kormac's Big Band, Tandem Felix, Attention Bebe, among others, decided they wanted to do something different: find a way of merging the direct energy of street-performing New Orleans brass bands with the subtle complexity of contemporary compositional arrangements. The intention to break down the formal barrier between audience and performer means Stomptown Brass use a split kit (separate snare and bass drummers) so they can bring music right to the streets, not limited by the need to plug in. This has led to impromptu street parties all over Ireland - including a traffic-stopping march down South Richmond St. after Canalaphonic. Stomptown Brass can turn a post-work drink on a sunny evening along the canal into a New Orleans Mardi Gras festival.

LITTLE HOURS :: Fri 24th March
Doors 8pm Tickets €12.50 & very special guest: STEPHANIE RAINEY
From a remote fishing port in the north west of Ireland comes the wildly talented musical duoLittle Hours. 26 year old vocalist / guitarist Ryan McCloskey and 22 year old vocalist / keyboardist John Doherty announce they will return to the live circuit this March. The band latest record ‘Water’ is impacting on February 3rd. Written in their home studio on the isolated clifftops of Killybegs, County Donegal, ‘Water’ encapsulates the purity and clarity of their body of work. The seclusion of their set up is seen in the pared back precision of their song-writing, weaving gorgeous melodies with evocative lyrics. “People in cities and large urban areas are influenced by many different things, so many diverse genres of music, whereas because we’re quite isolated we just write whatever we hear in our heads,” says Ryan. “We are, in effect, not contaminated by influences; our music is quite pure.” The band’s creative vision extends beyond their song-writing. Keyboardist John is a painter, and produces original artworks to accompany each of the tracks the duo record. The powerful forthcoming video for ‘Water’ was also their own conception. These threads of artistry all combine to build a uniquely homegrown approach to their craft. “We take it for granted where we’re from, of course,” adds John, “but we’re also definitely influenced by where we’re from. There is nowhere like it in the world.”

Doors 11pm Tickets €16  
22-year-old Mall Grab is breaking all kinds of moulds on his rapid rise to recognition on the world stage. Working from the confines of his decidedly un-electronic hometown of Newcastle, NSW, he is a clear example of the connective power of the Internet. Proof that the web does have the ability get real talent noticed. His sound has been described as ‘mildly celestial “hella stoned” introspections that pay homage to old Three 6 Mafia mixtapes as much as more recent astral experiences in house and techno.’ Inverted Audio says that ‘Mall Grab has steadily grown into a surefire purveyor of leg-stretching, dusty house material.’ With support from artists like George Fitzgerald and Four Tet, it seems like the best is still yet to come.

Stand-outs like giddy pop-punk belter ‘Sea Hearts’, and first single ‘Ready For The Magic’ are some of their most intense tracks to date. ‘RFTM’ deserves a special mention as a remarkable introduction to HB 2.0; detuned doom riffage and disco-punk rhythms make space for a tornado of a chorus ode to “the explosive nature of infatuation”.
