Doors 8pm | Show 9pm | €15 - €18
Formed originally in 1979, Metropolis quickly established themselves as one of Dublin's most interesting and innovative bands, playing the music they used to call Jazz-rock, mostly self-composed but including pieces ranging from Frank Zappa through Weather Report to The Police. Indeed Sting from that band came to their three-year residency in Dublin's Parliament Inn to witness a gig. Flash forward forty years to our belief that there is still much more to uncover and enjoy. We still play music that excites and challenges, but the priority now is the sheer enjoyment of improvising together. Metropolis now are Keith Donald, playing Clarinet and Sax, Paul Barrett playing keyboards, Paul McAteer playing Drums and Garvan Gallagher playing Bass.
