Watching music on the goggle box
Irish music fans have plenty of televisual treats to look forward to in the coming months. Last week, RTÉ announced their autumn schedule, and along with it, the news that music-based magazine show When Under Ether (now known as Under Ether) will return for a second series on RTÉ 2. Some of the artists expected to perform sessions include Villagers, Adrian Crowley, Natural History Museum and Republic of Loose.
“Honestly, I can’t say I was fully expecting the show to be renewed – hoped like hell of course, but expected nothing,” producer Elton Mullally told The Ticket. “Everyone knows that the Irish music industry and Irish music fans have been crying out for a show like this since the days of No Disco, and we are thrilled to get the gig.” Interested acts should e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
Also renewed for a second series is TG4’s Ceol ar an Imeall, hosted by journalist Una Mullally. Fight Like Apes and The Cast of Cheers are among the live performers, while there will also be interviews with international acts such as Vampire Weekend and showcases of work by 10 Irish music video directors.
The renowned Other Voices is also expected to return for its ninth season. It will be recorded in Dingle, Co Kerry this December.
