The G-man & Lisa Lemur present a delicious double-header featuring Galwegian garage-popsters Dott and New Zealand dream-folk duo French For Rabbits.
This one’s set to be particularly special as the the Galway group officially launch début album Swoon and the latter will be enjoying their very first professional visit to Ireland. Dott are from Galway, Ireland and play shiny, harmony-driven garage pop. The band is led by songwriter Anna McCarthy (vocals/guitar) with Laura Finnegan (bass/vocals), Miriam Donohue (guitar/vocals) and Tony Higgins (drums). Their debut EP Button was released in 2012 on the Popical Island Collective and on 7″ vinyl with Graveface Records USA.
French for Rabbits are a dream folk duo from Wellington, New Zealand. They released debut EP Claimed by the Sea in March through the Wellington music collective ‘Home Alone Music’. Strong alternative radio airplay of the album and a growing fan base has resulted in a Best Folk Album Tui nomination for the duo. Vocalist Brooke Singer and jazz guitarist John Fitzgerald use nautical-themed language to examine stories of longing and regret in a stunning début set.
This promises to be a storming set kicking off in the Triskel Arts centre at 9.30 and for a mere 7 notes shouldn’t be missed

“We have enjoyed our time making music together immensely but simply it’s now time for us to move on,” a band statement read.
“We would like to thank all our fans, friends, families who have supported us over the years.
“We also offer a big thank you to all of the artists who we have had the pleasure of sharing stages with and the all of the venues who continue to promote live music.”
Fans of the band will have a last chance to see the group as they play a number of farewell around the country in December.
The four-piece will be playing in Whelans, Dublin on Thursday, December 5, De Barras, Clonakilty, Co Cork on Friday, December 13 and Sunday, December 15 in Róisín Dubh, Galway.
“Our final show ever will be in The Pavilion, Cork on Saturday December 28 where there is a distinct possibility that we will have every member of the band past and present on stage together, at the same time, simultaneously.
“We will also be joined by some friends whom we have played with many times over the years.”
