After 3 years of writing about and reviewing new music, festivals and gigs here at The Minor Fall, The Major Lift we’ve decided it’s about time we put on some of our own. We’ll be taking over Sin É Dublin on Saturday July 29th for the first in a series of curated shows featuring the best new acts this island has to offer!
Headlining on the night are BODIES, fresh off the back of their brand new single ‘I’m Waiting’ . BODIES have spent time cultivating their sound; drawing influence from the likes of Radiohead, Brand New & Sigur Ros. Originally the solo project of David Anthony McGeown, now expanded to a 4 piece live band. Expect a wild sonic backdrop to David’s evocative and sometimes poignant lyrics.
Support on the night comes from Slouch and newcomers KEEP.
Slouch, self decribed as “The sound of gorillas caged in a polystyrene prison cell”, are a 3 three piece that play noisy, toe tappin’, knee slappin’ grungy/stonery tunes in your local swamphole. Often compared to Pinkerton-era Weezer with smackerings of Queens of the Stone Age and Pixies, the guys have released a slew of great singles this year off the back of last years ‘Feminine Elbows’ EP.
KEEP are a three-piece Experimental Rock band based in Dublin. Made up of members of Galway folk outfit Oscar Mild, and Dublin Progressive band Synk; Keep’s chilled sound is commandeered by the steady grooves of primary songwriter and drummer Seann Wynne.
Entry is FREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE and doors are at 8pm. See you in the front row!
Expect to see more gigs coming up over the coming months. If you’re in a band and would like to play at one of the shows please do get in touch!
