The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - Inside - iti.ms/hsyxer

To­mor­row’s Record Store Day isn’t the only cel­e­bra­tion of in­de­pen­dent mu­sic-mak­ing tak­ing place in Dublin this week­end. On Sun­day af­ter­noon, a fair dubbed “In­de­pen­dents’ Day” will take place at The Co-op on New­mar­ket Square, Dublin 8, with mu­sic, screen­ings, ex­hi­bi­tions and var­i­ous stalls tak­ing over the space from noon to 5pm.

As its name sug­gests, the event cel­e­brates and show­cases Ir­ish in­de­pen­dent and DIY cul­ture, from mu­sic, to art, comics, zines and more. Launched in 2008 by Anto Dil­lon – who runs the Dublin-based Loser­dom zine – the event has grown in re­cent years and now takes a team of six for sev­eral months to pull to­gether.

There will be live mu­sic from Melod­ica Deathship, Deepinthe­woods66, Fern Floor and more, as well as rock ’n’ roll DJ sets from Beep­beep’s Bop­shop and ska, soul and reg­gae from Tommy Rash.

Fair dues: Melod­ica Deathship will be fly­ing the DIY flag
