The Long Table Supper for Marriage Equality

Walking into Martcade in Rathmines, we’re greeted by a hallway of jam jars filled with tea lights. We pass through an open kitchen area, where Jette Virdi, food stylist and the key thinker behind The Creatives, is working behind a four hob gas oven to cook a meal for the 18 gathered guests at an intimate supper in aid of Marriage Equality. Her signature red bandana holds back her hair while she caramelises the blood oranges for the starter that will kick off our six-course meal for equality.

Music

Music Interview: Áine & Andy from Record Store Gay

An all-day, all-welcome festival of music and art complete with a limited edition tie-in record featuring a slew of Irish acts covering their favourite ‘gay anthems’, Record Store Gay is invariably an unmissable event benefiting a great cause. We had the pleasure of sitting down with Áine Beamish and Andy Walsh, the brains behind the operation, to talk about the importance of the day, tackling stereotypes and what to expect on Saturday 18th April.

Album Review: Tandem Felix – Comma

Tandem Felix Comma EP [Trout Records] https://soundcloud.com/tandemfelix/nothing-i-do-will-ever-be-good-enough There’s a thing that makes making convincing Americana in Dublin difficult, which is the surfeit of pedal steel players. Lucan lads Tandem Felix’s Comma EP is draped and drizzled in the stuff, which gives it an air of being potentially a lost cut read more…

Arts and Culture

12 Points Festival: The Dirty Dozen

Blink and you might miss it, but every second April something remarkable takes place in Dublin for fans of jazz and experimental music. It’s a far cry from the country’s other jazz events, like the Guinness Cork Jazz Festival that pulls in the big names, with wizened professionals churning out standards from the Great American Songbook year after year

There is a strong sense of Wylie’s painting process in her work. Her embrace of mistakes is made transparent through corrective painting; smooth white and pink patches stand out against the coarse texture of her un-primed canvases. The strength of Wylie’s work lies in her ability to discern when to forego the intentional, in favour of the accidental.

This is a Happenings Party, Man
