Yes, yes, I know I haven’t updated in a few days. A combination of festivals, deadlines and other bits and pieces have meant a bit of prioritising, but I’m back now and will be sticking lots of interesting things up next week.
In the meantime, if you find yourself in Dublin this Saturday night then make sure you go see Viktoria Modesta. An old friend is helping to put the show on and it’d be good to see some support for it.
Here’s the story I wrote on the performance for Hot Press to give you a bit of background and the poster is below.
Gothic glamourpuss Viktoria Modesta has her first date with Dublin This Saturday
Hotly tipped London-based singer/songwriter/model/muse/saucepot (ok, we added in the saucepot bit) Viktoria Modesta pops her Irish gig cherry this Saturday night in the Vaults (under Connolly Station). Promoted by the newly formed Sedition Industries, Ms Modesta’s salacious sounds splices electro-pop with old school 50s rock ‘n’ roll and has already won her an army of admirers over in Blighty.
She is supported by David TG (co-founder of the notorious Torture Garden club) and performance art troupe the Sedettes, tickets are 15Euro and available from www.tickets.ie. Doors open at 10pm. Check out www.seditionindustries.com for more details.
