The Gigonometry Summer Special - Thurs July 12 & Fri July 13th
18:00 - 22:30
The first night of our Summer Special features a very tasty line-up indeed. Newish but classy Dublin-based act Rob Walsh & the Panik Attaks (featuring a certain Mick Pyro) will close out the show in a haze of harmonic mayhem. Kerry-based Deep Sky Objects have descended meteor like on the music scene and will rip through the atmosphere to play a super set of sizzling singles on our special stage, and kicking things off is the wonderful Proper Micro NV, also travelling the M7 to bring a very different slice of the south-west in the form of his captivating electronic meanderings.
Rob Walsh & the Panik Attaks
Consisting of Rob Walsh (Lead vox and Rhythm guitar) Mick Pyro (Lead) Phil Deadly (Bass) Trevor Keogh (Drums), they've been ripping up stages around the country since their debut show last year at Electric Picnic. With a debut album coming this year and a few singles to wrap your heads around in between, it’s the live gigs when you can really start to come to terms with what this stellar line up is capable of. It’s a fuse that’s been lit. It’s Post Punk. Its balls out Rock n Roll. Catch them before it all goes up in flames!!
Deep Sky Objects are a three-piece alternative-rock band from Kerry. The band members include brothers Kevin O'Brien (lead vocals, guitar), Thomas O'Brien (drums and backing vocals) and DD Foley (bass guitar and backing vocals). Deep Sky Objects stemmed from a shared mutual interest in groups such as The Smiths, Interpol and Radiohead.
Released in June 2015, ‘We’re Done Falling’ is Deep Sky Objects’ debut EP and received great feedback from fans alike.
Proper Micro NV aka Rory Hall’s brand of experimental electronic music has seen him being compared to James Blake and Mount Kimbie. His debut EP titled 'EP1' was released in June 2016. The Irish Times quoted "One of the most interesting new voices on the Irish scene in some time", also stating "it was a great showcase for Proper Micro NV's distinctive, soulful, bittersweet vocals and off-kilter electronica”. In March 2017 Proper played Futureproof - the first of a series of gigs run by both Nialler9 & Homebeat. Six months on from the release of 'Its Always Raining' - Proper Micro NV returned with a brand new track 'All About Me', & played the Wonderlust Stage at Body&Soul festival. Colours was nominated for the long list of the RTÉ Choice Music Prize 2017.
The second night is in association with Irish independent music blog REMY, and features a tantalising line-up of acts. Headlining on the night will be experimental jazz and hard-core punk act Robocobra Quartet from Belfast. This will be the band’s first Dublin gig following the release of their sophomore album, ‘Plays Hard to Get’, the follow-up to the critically-acclaimed ‘Music for all Occasions’ which The Irish Times described as; “Frank Zappa, Charles Mingus and Rage Against the Machine meeting in a dark, absurdist alley”. The four-piece have a huge following in Ireland in no small part due to the emphatic intensity of their live performances.
Dundalk five-piece Just Mustard caused a jolt on the Irish music scene when they released their debut EP in 2016. Music critics struggled to define their sound adequately, moving from dream-pop to shoe-gaze to lo-fi and noise-rock. The release of their debut album ‘Wednesday’ in May of this year has confirmed them as an act that see no borders before them in terms of artistic expression.
Having formed in 2015, Wicklow alt-rock and punk four-piece The Felonies released a trio of singles in short succession last year garnering significant airplay on RTÉ 2FM which would directly lead to a slot at Electric Picnic. A stand-out performance at Whelan’s Ones To Watch in January this year has led to a groundswell of interest in the band and their hard-hitting live performance is a must see.
