The Elephant Room & Stitch Jones plus Guests
The Elephant Room play host to a rambunctious night of jovial merriment and general craic-havery. Showcasing some of Dublins more unhinged and ragged acts.
Acts on the night include:
The Motives are an alternative rock band from Wexford that formed in 2001. The members are Geoff Morrison (vocals, guitar), Joe Bernie (drums, vocals), Allan Kinsella (guitar, vocals, harmonica, keyboards) and Dean Redmond (bass, drums) they have been compared to The Divine Comedy, Jonathan Richman, and Talking Heads, difficult to define and get restless slotting into any one genre. The Motives have a singular voice that will appeal to encyclopaedic music nerds and casual listeners equally.
Boom Child are a chaotic rock trio from Dublin. Their music is an irreverent mix of punk, funk, and power pop. Their theatrical live show involves audience participation and a dancing cow. called Boomer.They released their debut "The Super Edible EP" in June 2016 on the first 100% edible music format. The single and video "I WANT TO SHIFT YOUR SISTER" was released February 2018.
Forming in 2014 after growing to hate their other bands, Stitch Jones was birthed out of a want to do something different and completely their own. Consisting of Ross O' Connor on drums/vocals & Watchy Watchorn on Bass/vocals they released 1 EP in 2015 and a full album in 2017 'Echolalia'.They're live show has been described as irreverent jappery with loud punk rock riffs and have played all over Ireland as well as Holland
The Elephant Room is a Dublin based 3 piece and purveyors of their own genre Alco-Pop. With hints of everyone from Wilco to Nirvana and Sparklehorse to The Beatles they present a distinctly lo-fi quality that can ranch from soft and melodically to feedback soaked. Their energetic sound is accompanied by lyrics that switch between either abstract word painting or touch on the more dark and honest aspects of human nature. In 2018 they independently released their single “Naive Green” and will follow it up with the release of their E.P. “Music On The Bones” on the 3rd of May.
