Drunken Lust Records will host a benefit gig for Pieta House on August 11th.
I [heart] The Monster Hero– is winsome musical collage, a mash-up of primitive sounds that toe the line between lo-fi and no-fi but together manage to engender an instinctively hooking, bubbly sunshine pop.
The Holy Sparks!!! – Are three men with various instruments, of differing heights who make music. You can hear that music here;
George Worrall – Dubliner George took up guitar blues at age 13 and hasn’t stopped since, although he’s incorporated a bit of country and jazz into his sound in the intervening years. His sound draws on early 20th century folk blues, with guitar work reminiscent of innovators such as John Fahey and Jim O’ Rourke.
Earl Mustard– aka visual artist James Mongey, Earl was one half of the cult Dublin art-punk outfit Hoovers and Sledgehammers. This is his solo incarnation, ahead of a debut album due to be released in the autumn.
DLR presents – In aid of Pieta House (Aug 11th) The Holy Sparks!!! I [heart] the monster hero George Worrall Earl Mustard 8:30pm, Saturday August 11th The Pint, Eden Quay Admission €8
About Pieta House
Pieta House, the suicide and self-harm crisis centre, officially opened its doors in Lucan, Co. Dublin in January 2006. The unique clinically based model developed by Pieta House is used across their five centres in Dublin and Limerick. There are also active discussions in progress to open centres in Galway, Cork and Roscrea. Pieta House provides a professional, face-to-face, free of charge therapeutic service for people in the acute stages of distress. Its primary aim is to reduce suicide by helping people get through that critical phase when suicide becomes a plan rather than just an idea.
Since 2006, Pieta House has grown to almost 80 therapists and staff. Demand for their services is constantly on the rise. To date over 6,000 people have been seen and helped by Pieta House.
Pieta House’s vision is that no-one in Ireland should be more than 100 kilometres from a Pieta House centre where they can avail of the clinical services at that time of crisis.
