Sunday November 11: DJ Ian Fiasco
For the opening night of Cork Film Festival Vitaphonic presents a New ‘Awlins Street Party gumbo of Hot Funk, Soul, Jazz and Rhythm n’ Blues, with Dr Ian Fiasco (presenter of CORNERSTONE show on UCC98.3FM) at the DJ controls playing a scorching selection of his rare vinyl.
Wednesday November 14: North Side Drive with Waking Up Sunday
An evening of contemporary neo classical music from North Side Drive. With support from Jazz/Funk/Electronic Quartet Waking Up Sunday.
North Side Drive is the solo project of Jonathan Pearson, a 25 year old pianist, vocalist and drummer from Cork. Pearson recently set up North Side Drive as a means to create classical music that is enjoyable and accessible to a new audience. Performing with a string quartet, his style is minimalistic, cinematic music that creates a very close and introspective atmosphere for the audience. Pearson will will be playing material from his debut sell-out self-titled EP along with a repertoire of new material.
“Eerie, evocative, graceful piano and strings from Former Monarchs’ drummer Jonathan Pearson which will remind you of the minimalist panache of Hauschka and Nils Frahm.” THE IRISH TIMES
Electro-Jazz-Funk? Whatever you call it, Waking Up Sunday is simply great music, a blend of well-arranged noise, striking hooks and infectious melodies that can only be described as a pleasure for any lover of true music. With a style that resembles the likes of Hot Chip, Adele, Simian Mobile Disco, Stevie Wonder, Fatboy Slim & Royskopp, this is an experience that you won’t want to over-look.
Thursday November 15: Horsemen Pass By with The Karman Line
_“One of the most compelling acts in Cork today.” _DROP-D
“[Horsemen Pass By] played with fantastic energy and timing, hooking everyone’s imagination and admiration.” THE MEDICINE SESSIONS, WATERFORD
The Karman Line are Cork electronic twosome Jack Ahern and Brian Murphy. They have supported The Field, Crystal Castles, Pantha Du Prince, Plaid and Crazy P. They have featured in the IMRO Showcase Tour 2010, recorded a 2FM live Studio Session for Dan Hegarty and most recently participated in the Lightbox Tour of Irish producers with SertOne, Bantum and Simon Bird. The duo released their first EP in 2011 – TKLEP0. The Karman Line’s audio-visual show consists of a lot of gear making a wall of noise, and live visuals working in sync with the music.
“ The Karman Line … is a Cork band that have been creating their own quiet revolution. Call them what you will: Electronica, Post Rock, or simply alternative, they are one of the most promising and least hyped Irish bands around.” DAN HEGARTY, 2FM
Friday November 16: Cian Ó Cíobháin (An Taobh Tuathail, RnaG / 110th Street, Galway) with Phil Hope (Under a Plastic Cloud)
DJ Phil Hope presents Under a Plastic Cloud a dancefloor celebration of alternative 60’s sounds covering freak beat, northern soul, garage punk, psych, R&B, and much more all spun on original 45’s.
Saturday November 17: Ray (Wingnut Records), Albert (Plugd Records) and Gib (Elastic Witch Records) plus special guest Terri Hooley.
Just announced : Terri Hooley, Godfather of Belfast Punk Scene and owner of record store, Good Vibrations, will join Ray, Albert and Gib as a Special Guest DJ.
With the screenings of Good Vibrations: The Terri Hooley Story and Sound it Out at Cork Film Festival, both documentaries which celebrate the important role that Independent Record stores play in the cultural landscape, Vitaphonic decided it was time to pay homage of it’s own and invite three of Ireland’s Independent Record Shop guru’s to play their favourite tracks. With Ray from Wingnut Records (Galway and Waterford), Gib from Elastic Witch (Dublin) and Cork’s own Albert (Plugd Records) on the decks you can expect a musical smorgasbord of Irish, Punk-Rock, Psych-Rock, Reggae, Hip-Hop, Beats, Electronica and more.
We reckon these guys will be in a documentary of their own one day!
