AC­TION BRON­SON Rare Chan­de­liers Vice Former chef Ac­tion Bron­son hasn’t en­tirely swapped life at the stove for the de­mands of the mi­cro­phone. Fans of the New York rough­neck from his colos­sal Blue Chips mix­tape will know Bron­son has a fond­ness for throw­ing random lines about food into the mid­dle of his old­school brag­ging and dense ur­ban word­plays. On Rare Chan­de­liers, with Eminem’s buddy Al­chemist rid­ing pro­duc­tion shot­gun, Bron­son sautes, grills and bakes crack­ing rhymes about hard­knock liv­ing, in­salu­bri­ous sit­u­a­tions and dopey hi-jinks. While it’s hard to know just how far Bron­son can take this schtick – is there really a de­mand for a rap­ping An­thony Bour­dain? – his abil­ity to hone such bangers as The Sym­bol and Mod­ern Day Rev­e­la­tions mean there will al­ways be a de­mand for his skills. Book a ta­ble now for his show at Dublin’s Twisted Pep­per. ac­tion­bron­son.com JIM CAR­ROLL
