Leonard Cohen and Nick Cave both celebrate their birthdays within a day of each other this month. The old master and the young pretender also both release new albums to add to their great catalogue of songs.
To celebrate this, members of The Annulments, Twin Headed Wolf, Vameel and Thumper, amongst others will play some of their favourite songs from these two masters of song.
Other guest musicians include Éna Brennan, Leigh Duncan, Aisling Rowe, Gareth Quinn Redmond and (for one night only) Hugo Newman.
The concert will be a fully acoustic affair in lovely surroundings of The Back Loft. Tickets are €10 and will be available on the door or alternatively here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/cohen-cave-birthday-tribute-tickets-28117169210
