Richter scales For­bid­den heights

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - News -

It’s been a big week for Dublin’s ever-evolv­ing in­de­pen­dent la­bel Richter Col­lec­tive. Not only has it an­nounced a part­ner­ship with US la­bel Sar­gent House, but it has been asked to curate the Light­house Stage at the up­com­ing For­bid­den Fruit fes­ti­val at Royal Hos­pi­tal Kil­main­ham on June 4th and 5th.

The Cast of Cheers, Square­head, BATS, Not Squares, En­e­mies and Sar­gent House-signed band Tara Me­los have been added to the bill on June 5th, while other new non-Richter ad­di­tions to the week­end in­clude Bom­bay Bi­cy­cle Club and SpankRock. The Flam­ing Lips will head­line Satur­day’s show, and Aphex Twin will close the cur­tains on Sun­day.

Mick Roe, who runs Richter Col­lec­tive and man­ages The Cast of Cheers, said that it was a priv­i­lege to be asked to curate a stage at such a di­verse fes­ti­val.

“Even though the bands we’ve se­lected are all quite dif­fer­ent in style, I think what ties them all to­gether is an en­er­getic and re­ally en­joy­able live set,” he said. “We sign al­most all of our bands on the strength of their live sets. We hope it’ll be a good show­case of both our ros­ter and our friends.” for­bid­denfruit.ie
