(Father Peter Conefrey, 1934)
At what moment does a ship become tall? At what point do you suddenly move up from being an average sized ship to being a great big tall one? If you’ve ever asked these questions, then this week is for you…
Music – Down with Jazz is the name of a movement started in Fr Peter Conifrey’s to ban jazz in 1930’s Leitrim. You can hear a documentary on it here, but it’s also the name of a music festival in Meeting House Square, running from 24th to the 26th, tickets are Free here. There’s also Santigold (Button Factory) and Noel Gallagher. If you fancy seeing the new policing structures for Dance gigs in the capital, David Guetta plays Marley Park.
Theatre – True West by Sam Shepard starts in Smock Alley tonight! AC Productions version of ‘Much Ado about Nothing’ starts continues, as does A woman of no importance in the Gate, and the Plough and the Stars in the Abbey.
Events – The Tall ships are back in town, and various high jinx have been linked with them. You can get a full line up here, and there’s even a few gigs, with Cathy Davey and Jerry Fish, among others. Kings of Concrete is linked to it, in some way, or maybe just happens to be on at the same time! It has moved to the Grand Canal Dock, so will be right beside it, if nothing else.
UPDATE: No, still we need more events! I forgot to mention Heritage week, which has a mass of readings, talks and events around the city. The best name i’ve found is…”The Stuff That Reams Are Made Of: Innovations In 18th & 19th C. Papermaking In Europe!” I love a good pun though. Full list of events here.
