Amnesty International gig in the Boomboomroom, Conways, 15/10/2007 11/09/2007

Posted by lmd64 in asciinoid, electronic music, gig.

I’m playing a set this Saturday in Dublin’s Boomboomroom (upstairs in Conways on Parnell St) in aid of Amnesty International. Haven’t decided for definite what to play, it’s either going to be a downbeat Asciinoid live set or a downbeat DJ set, but I’m leaning towards the live set (more fun to play/interesting to watch/suited to the indie kids etc).

Here’s the lineup/running order:
21.20 Spook Of The Thirteenth Lock
22.00 Bastard Rain
22.50 Asciinoid
23.40 Corrugated Tunnel

A little bit about the other acts:

Edwin James was first introduced to proper house music when he entered FishGoDeep’s legendary night ‘SWEAT’ at Sir Henry’s night club in his home town Cork, Ireland. Music and computers went hand in hand and the purchase of a laptop and Ableton Live brought his productions out of the bedroom and into Irish clubland. Working his way up through the various clubs and events, he secured support slots with Abe Duque, The Hacker, James Holden, Legowelt and along with Chymera @ the Electric Picnic Festival 2006..
His first proper independent release “High Rise” on his own SeedyR stamp earned him generous 4/5 in DJ Magazine and put his name firmly on the up and coming Irish producers list.
2006 saw him released his acclaimed debut album ‘We are Electronix’ on [Invisible Agent Records/seedyR], which was described as “Coming at you like Kraftwerk jamming with Eno and Daft Punk ” by i-DJ magazine. He is currently working on a number of projects with Mark O’Sullivan (DK7) and producing tracks for Chelonis R. Jones (Get Physical Records) along with his second album. He also has releases signed and coming out on UrbanTorque, HartHouse, Orlando Voorn’s label Night Vision. Plus his debut 12″ on Invisible Agent this summer will see him remixed by Dave Terrida (TRESOR Berlin) artist.

The Spook is Allen from Holy Ghost Fathers/Ballroom of Romance. Named after a poem about a haunted canal lock, the Spook plucks banjos and twangs guitars. He yelps, drones and hums songs about dead revolutionaries, partisans and haunted cobblestone streets.

The Bastard Rain combines elements of lofi electronica, odd folk, and garage rock to produce meandering musical tales of lost souls wandering prairies, old women screaming at the sea, and drunken fights in small country towns.

Amnesty International at work:
In Ireland and across the world, Amnesty International exposes the truth, speaks out and creates change.

Amnesty International’s vision is of a world in which every person enjoys all of the human rights enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and other international human rights standards.

In pursuit of this vision, Amnesty International’s mission is to undertake research and action focused on preventing and ending grave abuses of the rights to physical and mental integrity, freedom of conscience and expression, and freedom from discrimination, within the context of its work to promote all human rights.
