Cloud Cas­tle Lake or­ches­trate art gig

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - Inside - lmur­phy@irish­times.com

Up-and-com­ing Ir­ish band Cloud Cas­tle Lake are set to head­line a spe­cial gig tak­ing place at Dublin’s Craw­daddy next week.

It comes un­der the banner of the Heineken Mu­sic-spon­sored Fu­ture Bright se­ries, which is held on the fi­nal Thurs­day of each month and gives bands and artists the reins to curate their own evening of en­ter­tain­ment – ei­ther through their se­lec­tion of sup­port acts or by putting their own unique spin on what a gig should be.

To that end, Cloud Cas­tle Lake – who sup­ported crit­i­cally ac­claimed Amer­i­can artist Glasser at last month’s gig – are plan­ning a spe­cial vis­ual art-themed gig when they play on March 31st. They have also en­gaged the ser­vices of sev­eral mem­bers of the Trin­ity Orches­tra – with whom they pre­vi­ously col­lab­o­rated on a Kanye West cover – to boost their own sound.

“We’ve al­ways had plans to play with brass and strings live, ever since we fig­ured it would work with our mu­sic – so I guess that’s an­other rea­son why Fu­ture Bright ap­pealed to us,” said drum­mer James O’Dono­hue. “It’s giv­ing us space to pretty much do what­ever we want, once we all have fun.”

It’ll also be Cloud Cas­tle Lake’s last head­line gig be­fore they be­gin the record­ing of their de­but al­bum this sum­mer. Sup­port comes from Katie Kim, and tick­ets are ¤5 on the door.
