The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - MUSIC NEWS - lmur­[email protected]­times.com

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
