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.

Artsdesk: Garrett Phelan and Richard Proffitt’s Occultism

Two exhibitions in Dublin this year by Richard Proffitt and Garrett Phelan have explored a contemporary kind of occultism.
