STOMPTOWN BRASS Requiem for the Truth | Dublin Fringe Festival

STOMPTOWN BRASS Requiem for the Truth.jpg


Outrageously energetic 10-piece street-funk band Stomptown Brass invite you to join them as they take on an audacious task; to host a funeral for the truth. Witness the colourful exuberance of the Haitian Voodoo-inspired New Orleans jazz funeral as it smashes up against the mournful, solemn ceremony of Roman Catholicism. This is a show both life-affirming and other-worldly. An extravagant, chaotic street party with a dark twist. So get in (second-)line, and follow the blistering trumpets and blaring trombones from the streets of Dublin to the house of God as we ask: is Truth really dead? Was it ever alive?

Dates Sep 21 - 24 @ 19:30

Le Galaxie urge artists to enter ‘incredible’ new Other Voices Open Call



Other Voices have launched a search to give one Irish musician the chance to perform at the Dingle music festival as well as studio time and a video budget.

With Other Voices approaching its 16th instalment they are welcoming musicians to send in a sample of their work through the new eir Other Voices Open Call system, with the chosen act securing a performance slot at the festival in Dingle this December.

The act will have all of their expenses paid for the trip to Dingle, they will be given a three-day recording studio session with a top engineer, and a production company and budget to make a music video, as well as practical mentoring from the Other Voices team.
