Char­i­ta­ble tunes for Trócaire gig

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

It’s not too of­ten you hear of a char­ity mak­ing do­na­tions to their sup­port­ers, but that’s ex­actly what Trócaire have planned for later this month. They’re stag­ing a gig dubbed Thanks, from Trócaire at Dublin’s Grand So­cial on June 23rd, which will fea­ture Ir­ish acts CODES, The Hot Sprock­ets, Sto­ry­fold, Afro-Ir­ish col­lec­tive Tig Linn and DJ iZem.

En­try to the gig is free to those who were in­volved in this year’s Hon­duras-fo­cused Len­ten cam­paign, while tick­ets will be avail­able at ¤5 to other mem­bers of the pub­lic.

In keep­ing with the spirit of the cam­paign, the night will be Cen­tral Amer­i­can­themed. Latino gui­tarists and dancers, film footage, games and crafts from the re­gion, and hot Hon­duranin­spired snacks and cock­tails will be avail­able on the night.

“This def­i­nitely won’t be just your run-of-the-mill gig,” said 2FM DJ Ruth Scott, who will MC on the night. “We’re hop­ing there will be a laid-back, Latino car­ni­val vibe to the event, and it looks like it’s go­ing to be a great night.”
