There’s a special celebration of Arthur Russell’s life and music happening at the Bernard Shaw, Dublin on Sunday October 30 as part of The Beatyard weekender. Sound Now, Seek & You Will FInd will feature performances from Angkorwat, Patrick Kelleher, School Tour, TR One, Quarter Inch Tape Collective, Conor L, David Kitt and Louis Scully plus The Eatyard food festival and an exhibition of Arthur Russell memorabilia. I’ll also be having a Banter conversation with Tim Lawrence, the author of the fantastic “Hold Onto Your Dreams” biography of Russell (and the excellent “Love Saves the Day” history of 1970s’ American dance culture). Admission to this one is free and proceedings get underway at 2pm.
