Celebrating Cultures, Promoting Integration
1. Kaleo at Olympia Theatre
The four-piece band from Iceland who now call the US home will be presenting their new A/B album, a gorgeous and raucous blend of rock, folk and blues.
The concept behind A/B comes from vocals and guitar Julius Son’s love of the split sides of vinyl records and their ability to showcase an artist’s different sides: “I write very different songs that many would like to label into different genres,” he says. “The idea of A/B is to show the diversity and the two sides of the band.” The “A” side is more rock and roll and blues (opener No Good, Way Down We Go, Hot Blood), while the “B” side is a bit softer with more ballads (All the Pretty Girls, Vor I Vaglaskogi, and closer I Can’t Go On Without You).
But no matter which side you’re on and which song is playing, the sound can only be that of Kaleo and you will be able to listen them live and let yourself go to the rhythm of their vibes.
Hope you are one of the lucky ones, they sold out!
Where: Olympia Theatre, 73 Dame Street, Dublin 2
