Antony Cronin

On the shelves of self-respecting, borderline faking it, intellectuals sits a copy of Anthony Cronin's Samuel Beckett - The Last Modernist. Its spine may remain supple, if intact, but it's there. Hovering near his two fat ladies stage of life, this is an opportunity to witness a once towering figure in the arts. As a poet, novelist, biographer and critic, Cronin remains one of the few bridges who can recollect the antics of Kavanagh and Behan. As one of Charlie Haughey's advisors and a poet laureate of sorts along with Paul Durcan to our de facto government  - The Sunday Independent - Cronin has done the state some service. His autobiography Dead As Doornails is a vivid and delightful insight into the complexity of the Irishman chroniciling the "excess of drink, the shortage of sex, the insecurity and begrudgery, the painful limitations of cultural life..." / Zach Joyce

Madlib

Madlib playing on Holy Thursday just couldn’t be more appropriate. As one of the Gods of hip-hop production, his army of devoted worshippers will surely be giving mass the middle finger and skipping Father Bernie’s best sermon in lieu of heading to Choice Cuts’ latest selection. Fans of the late, great J Dilla will already be more than aware of Madlib’s status and catalogue, not to mention his powerhouse pairing project with Dilla, known as Jaylib. Further collaborations with MF Doom and Talib Kweli, along with production credits on 73 albums (almost half entirely by himself) cement his place amongst, quite simply, the smaller community of hip-hop artists actually worth listening to – no bullshit, no gimmicks, just beautiful beats such as Distant Land, Solitude, Flowers and much more. Drop in and let this Holy Thursday be your awakening! / Philip Notaro

concert

Karmacloud

Karmacloud a folk trio that formed in Berklee in Boston (aka best music school in the world) made up of 3 songwriters from Ireland, Holland, and Denmark. Their Irish link is a certain Dan Forde, who's previously played in Slow Skies and wrote the music for Collapsing Horse's wonderful Monster Clock - he's really a sickeningly talented musician, so expect a Karmacloud to descend on the Back Loft as they Peter, Paul and Mary the folk out of harmonies, and create a magical, triangle-clang of peaceful, forest melancholy. It's camp-forest fires, and candlelit ghost stories in the form of a lo-fi trio. Spine-tingling and dream-catching, it's a gig you will not forget. It will haunt you in the best way possible. / Sarah O'Neill
