The Long Balconies: Tales from a City.
axis and Musictown presents
The Long Balconies, Tales from a City
8pm April 18th
A Lazarus Soul are an extraordinary band who's roots are in this neck of the woods and our director Mark O'Brien has been raving about them for the past year or so.
So we're delighted to announce a very very special evening as part of the Musictown festival
Brian Brannigan and Joe Chester of A Lazarus Soul will play some of the songs off the band’s last two albums and talk with historian Donal Fallon about their inspirations, songwriting and the importance of the city and it's people in their work.
This is not to be missed and will sell out fast.
Shout out to Ray Corcoran for all his help in putting this together
“Did the tracksuit or stiletto turn this neighbourhood into a ghetto?”....
A Lazarus Soul have written the soundtrack of Dublin’s urban experience
Much like u2 captured the sound of a changing urban dreamscape in the late 70’s / early 80’s with Boy and October and Aslan created the sound of longing hope from the same North Dublin streets in the late 90’s, and Glen Hansard intimate love songs of the streets made magic in Once,
They have captured, across their last two albums, the sound of a city of lost souls remembering, frustrated, revolting, looking again for connection and hope.' Mark O'Brien axis Director
