Dublin’s monthly ‘Culture Vulture’ event celebrates 1st birthday with singer Neil Hannon
The capital’s favourite monthly pop culture event, which combines music, spoken word & a public interview, is marking its first year in business by hosting a gig with the Divine Comedy’s Neil Hannon.
In March, Culture Vultures celebrates 12 wonderful months in Dublin’s fair city, and who better to help with the celebrations than the fantastic Mr Neil Hannon on Wednesday 18th March.
Over the last year, Culture Vultures has welcomed stellar line-ups to the intimate surrounds of Odessa Club in Dublin.
The likes of Glenn Patterson, Liam Cunningham, Stuart Carolan, Lenny Abrahamson, and Panti have taken to sitting under the spotlight to chat with with Tony Clayton-Lea.
Cathy Davey, HamsandwicH, Join Me In The Pines, Nick Kelly, Daithi, and Lisa O’Neill have also graced the stage with their musical talents, and the all-encompassing pop cultural night has had spoken word artists John Cummins and Erin Fornoff, and comedians Eleanor Tiernan and Colm O’Regan join the bill.
Under the guise of Divine Comedy, Neil Hannon has, for over 20 years, been at the forefront of creating some of the smartest pop music in the world.
From early albums such as Liberation, Promenade and Casanova to later records such as Absent Friends, Victory For The Common Muse, and Bang Goes The Knighthood, Hannon has managed to capture both humour and poignancy, and to wrap them up in perfectly structured songs.
Following several collaborative and theatre-based works, 2015 sees the re-emergence of Neil as Divine Comedy, but before that takes place, Culture Vultures is thrilled skinny that he is taking time out of his very busy schedule to sit down and chat as well as perform songs.
Tickets priced at €15 go on sale Friday 20 February from Entertainment.ie. Doors: 8pm.
