AND SO I Watch You From Afar are set to take over the Róisín Dubh in December where they will curate two nights of live music events.
The astonishing County Antrim post-rock/metal/prog quartet will host The Stay Golden: Two evenings curated by ASIWYFA, in association with the Rosin Dubh and the Sargent House record label on Thursday December 19 and Friday 20.
The night is a culmination of what has been a great year for the Ulstermen, which began with the release of their third album, and arguably finest and most ambitious album to date, All Hail Bright Futures.
The band have enjoyed great critical acclaim and their first two albums, And So I Watch You From Afar and Gangs, were both nominated for the Choice Music Prize.
All Hail Bright Futures showed the band at their most imaginative. Pushing past the restrictive boundaries of post-rock, the quartet embrace Brian May style guitar workouts (‘Big Thinks Do Remarkable’ ), duelling metal guitars (the thrilling ‘Like A Mouse’ ), Terry Reilly styled vocal manoeuvres (‘Ka Ba Ta Bo Da Ka’ ), and Irish trad (‘Mend And Make Safe’ ), creating a breathtaking work of imagination and joy.
Each night’s bill at the Rosin Dubh will be curated by ASIWYFA and details of the acts included will follow.
Tickets are available at www.roisindubh.net, the Ticket Desk at OMG, Shop Street (formerly Zhivago ), and The Róisín Dubh.
