The Music Tapes

Led by Julian Koster, creator of Night Vale’s Orbiting Human Circus & member of Neutral Milk Hotel. Support from Buí and Orri & Fionn. Presented by Sizeable Bear Promotions

Regional Cultural Centre, 8pm
Admission €15, TICKETS HERE

After decades of beloved otherworldly live shows, music, storytelling, magic, and games, Julian Koster (Neutral Milk Hotel) and Music Tapes co-founder Robbie Cucchiaro come to Ireland for their first in-person appearances of any kind in over two years, in these special duo-shows— featuring material drawing from their entire musical catalogue, and cult favourite musical the Orbiting Human Circus, a fiction narrative podcast presented by Nightvale, created by Koster and produced by NPR/WNYC.

This special evening with the Music Tapes promises to be surprising, hypnotic, and as always, to entertain unlike anything else.

Buí is a collaborative project centred around the music of singer-songwriter Josh Healy. Since the release of their debut album in November 2017, Buí has toured regularly around Ireland and the UK. The band recently released their debut EP ‘Talking to the Walls’, which was recorded to tape by acclaimed recording engineer and producer Julie McLarnon.

Orri & Fionn is a new, yet-to-be-named, recording project featuring composer ORRI and Fionn Robinson of Aul Boy.

This is a BYOB event with cabaret-style seating. Tickets are limited to 100. TICKETS HERE
