Remember Elvis in rock’n’roll style
Tomorrow marks the 37th anniversary of the death of Elvis Presley, and those of a rock’n’roll persuasion looking to mark the occasion may be interested in the Rock’n’Roll Conference. The three-day event is free to the public and will encompass plenty of live music from rock’n’roll and rockabilly bands in Dublin’s Dame District (the streets between Exchequer Street and Dame Street), including The Full Moon Boogie Band, Old Moon, The Shades, Slim Jim and the Bone Breakers and more. There will also be an Elvis singing competition, a rock’n’roll fashion show, a vintage auto show with classic American cars from the 1950s and 1960s, and a barber convention for those looking to tune up their pompadours.
The conference runs in conjunction with the Jack of Diamonds Rhythm & Roots festival, which takes place in The Mercantile, Sweeney’s, The Button Factory and The Grand Social. The Cujo Family, Tucan, Tupelo, Gavin Glass, Mutefish, Prison Love and many more acts will play from tonight until Sunday. Facebook.com/jack of diamonds productions
