B. Dolan – Workman’s Club – 29-09-15


Anyone that made it to B. Dolan in the Workman’s Club late last year will know how important this news it! B Dolan commands a crowd like few others, and the chance to see him in a perfect club setting like the Workmans is not to be missed. Tickets are a nice price €12.

His new album ‘Kill The Wolf’ arrives on July 10th 2015.

Dolittle presents B. DOLAN+ guestsSeptember 29th, The Workman’s Club

Following a totally sold-out–packed-to-the-rafters gig at our gaff last November with Scroobius Pip and warrenpeace, B. Dolan makes his Irish return with his very own headline show at The Workman’s Club on Tuesday, 29 September.

B. Dolan’s 2010 debut offering ‘Fallen House, Sunken City’, was a monument to indie rap at a time when the music industry had all but abandoned it. Aggressive, booming and confrontational, the Providence, Rhode Island native announced himself as a high powered presence on the mic. ‘Fallen House’ was met with critical acclaim and cult status among fans, forecasting the resurgence of lyrically driven rap years ahead of its time.

It shouldn’t come as a surprise then that in the five years since, Dolan has largely ignored demand for a speedy follow-up and focused on building another ambitious, epic long player. A pair of mixtapes released in that time, ‘House of Bees vol. 2 & 3’, have given a growing army of devotees huge anthems (like ‘Film the Police,’ ‘Which Side Are You On?’ and ‘King Bee’), as well as tantalizing glimpses of what the emcee’s been building in there. Dolan’s live shows have also become the stuff of legend; he once brought a 20 piece marching band overseas with him as backing and has rocked over 500 shows internationally in the last decade (with acts like ATMOSPHERE, SAGE FRANCIS, and even hardcore bands CIRCLE TAKES THE SQUARE and UNITED NATIONS.)

The new record, ‘KILL THE WOLF’ arrives on July 10th 2015, and features an eclectic and unlikely cast of collaborators including AESOP ROCK, BUCK 65, KATHLEEN STUBELEK (of CIRCLE TAKES THE SQUARE) and the late DAVE LAMB (of BROWN BIRD). The LP features production from ALIAS, CECIL OTTER (Doomtree), BUDDY PEACE and more. It would be easy for an album to go astray amid such varying styles, but Dolan stays in firm command as ‘KILL THE WOLF’s executive producer, utilizing and combining his guests’ talents in surprising ways, all while maintaining the foreground as a seasoned lyricist and songwriter.
