So rather than do a festival I’ve decided to stick to putting on a couple of gigs. The art exhibitions, talks, workshops and comedy are going to have to wait. To be honest the Trash Culture Revue has been a victim of it’s own success. When I started off doing these events through mutantspace there was only about 4 – 6 people interested in producing a show. Last May there was nearly 30. I also don’t have a budget. Last years festival cost €50. Which is pretty incredible seeing as we had a packed programme and national coverage of most events. However I can’t keep that up. Something has to break. And for me it was time.
This year I’ve decided to go easy on myself and have fun rather than stress out over the whole thing. So I’m only putting on gigs. Music is always easier for me to put together and Plugd records have been a great help. So here’s what we’re doing between 17th – 19th May. There are also a few other house events. But I can’t publicise them.
We will be doing our annual Bloomsday event on 16th June and Ill be putting a mutantspace collective art show together over the coming months. So here’s the blurb on the weekend of free music that ranges from psychedelic experimental electronica to slam poetry, punk trad and folk to dark gothic blues.
