    Darklights and red elves

    Fiona McCann

    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.

    • Wasn’t it amazing? I still have the bone dance in my head now. And wasn’t it such a picturesque setting even if the aucoustics were a little off that was to be expected. This is the chap that was sitting next to you at that gig by the way. Love the blog. I left you a link to my word press.

      Shane, I had a ball and agreed, the setting was enchanting. Ditto your blog.
