PICK OF THE FORT­NIGHT

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - THE TICKET - SEVEN DAYS - JC Lau­rence Mackin

When it comes to great wob­bly house bangers that sparkle with pop glitz, Ham­burg DJ and pro­ducer Marco Niemer­ski has it go­ing on in spades. The mas­sive hit Coma Cat in­tro­duced us to his work, but de­but al­bum Glow showed that was just the tip of the ice­berg. Here was an al­bum full to the brim with à la mode house, with plenty of pop twists. Niemer­ski has been a reg­u­lar vis­i­tor to th­ese parts too, ap­pear­ing at the Beat­yard and Life fes­ti­vals in re­cent years. NEW YEAR’S EVE There will be no Ticket edi­tion on De­cem­ber 26th (yes even we have fam­i­lies that tol­er­ate our pres­ence for a day or two), so in the fol­low­ing pages, you’ll find list­ings for the next fort­night, and rec­om­men­da­tions for the next seven days. But see­ing as New Year’s Eve has ac­tu­ally be­come some­thing worth go­ing out for in the past few years, we thought it best to look a lit­tle fur­ther ahead for our last rec­om­men­da­tion of 2014.

The will be rap­ping and rolling its way through the city on Dec 30 and 31. High­lights in­clude Sound­ings: Holy Trin­ity with Dy­lan Hask­ins and Lisa Han­ni­gan at City Assem­bly House, Lingo: Po­ets vs Rap­per and the Dublin Po­etry Slam.
