The Jimmy Cake
Following on from 2008s critically acclaimed Spectre and Crown, The Jimmy Cake are back, with a new set and a new sound. Reduced from a cast of hundreds to a slimmed down six piece, we find the Jimmy Cake’s music equally stripped back: where once there were strings, accordion and tubas there is now the esoteric appeal of the vintage synths and tightly coiled, pounding rhythms. Guitars are back, and they mean to do some business. Headlifting, powerful, hypnotic, the Jimmy Cake have embraced change once more, and, it’s with this feckless bravado in mind that they embark on their latest adventure. Come with them.
Voided By Ponces
“Ireland’s leading Guided By Voices tribute act”, they say… “they” being the assorted members of Large Mound, The Dudley Corporation, Night On Earth, Pantone247 and Land Lovers who make up Voided By Ponces. If you like GBV you’ll like VBP – it’s that simple.
Meanwhile on the POGO side of things, Barry Redsetta will be joined by Stereotonic label star Simon Resoul & John Mahon in the basement, while in the Café there’ll be a Silent Disco (!) with a pair of Dublin Streets DJs to choose from on yer ear goggles.
