DUBLIN2020 LIVE: PERFORMANCES BY ANDERSON, THE HOT SPROCKETS AND DARLING With MC Eric Lalor
Saturday 17 October | Meeting House Square | 8.30pm till late
The Dublin2020 campaign culminates this week as the Bid Book, which outlines why Dublin should win the title of European Capital of Culture, is handed over.
Dublin2020 will celebrate with a free gig in Temple Bar’s Meeting House Square, featuring performances by Anderson, Darling and The Hot Sprockets, from 8.30pm till late, with comedian Eric Lalor as MC.
Master of the DIY approach, Anderson – aka Daniel Anderson – made headlines earlier this year when video footage of the musician selling his debut album door to door in Finglas went viral. The Hot Sprockets play this free gig before embarking on a seven-week Irish Tour and Dublin duo Darling, whose first album is due out in 2016, also join the line up with their brand of synth speckled, indie guitar drenched pop rock.
Dublin’s application to be European Capital of Culture has been has been influenced hugely by the thoughts and ideas that have come from the meetings, chats and workshops the Dublin2020 team have had with the capital’s citizens. The team invite Dubliners to come and help celebrate the bid at this free gig.
