Darklights and red elves
Darklight kicked off last night and the Court Yard in Smithfield was jammers – even William Blake made an appearance, in the heartfelt and inspiring words from head of the Canadian Film Board Tom Perlmutter. Did I mention there’s plenty on, including this, which will be grappling with the question: Has Pop Eaten Itself? The discussion will be chaired by journalist Una Mullalay with a panel consisting of Will St. Ledger, journalist Sinead Gleeson, Dylan Haskins, blogger Rapture Ponies, DJ Alison Curtis and musician James O’Neill. But before that, there’s this at the Joinery, an open discussion by Synth Eastwood on their work and animation in Ireland. Which I would be attending, were it not for this: David Turpin’s new album launch. For a sample of what’s in store, click away to his myspace. But here’s a reminder of what came before, from the somewhat aptly named The Sweet Used-To-Be.
