Grimes, Catscars – 3rd August, Upstairs @ Whelans

We’ve some tickets for the Grimes & Catscars gig next week to give away, courtesy of those nice WhelansLive people. are thrilled to present the Irish debut of Montreal’s GRIMES on Wednesday August 3rd upstairs @ Whelan’s. GRIMES brilliantly imaginative & skewed take on electro-pop has seen her debut album, 2010’s Halfaxa garner euphoric praise from all corners and the praise has been no less effusive for her new Ep ‘Darkbloom’ with GRIMES being hailed by many as a true visionary with an ear for infectious cosmic disco like few before her.

Grimes’ audio universe where Kate Bush jams with Fleetwood Mac in a floatation tank while the spirit of Arthur Russell hovers overhead is simply stunning. The European release of Halfaxa last month will mean that you’ll be hearing a lot more from GRIMES in the next year and with artists like James Blake & Lykke Li popularizing interesting mash-ups of sub genres the time is now for GRIMES and her unique style or music.

Supporting on the night is the wonderful Robyn Bromfield aka CATSCARS from Dublin. Presents:
