“Irish funk band Creamy Goodness [above performing Boogie Wonderland] set out to play the incredible music of Earth Wind and Fire tonight in the Sugar Club, [Leeson Street, Dublin]. This will be performed by an eleven piece band chocfull of the best musicians, composers and obsessed fans of Earth Wind and Fire. It’s compulsory all funk fans should attend, especially ones who want to hear September played by an eleven piece band. 10-er in, 9pm start and support from Jesse Heffernan and James Keating on the decks afterwards until late. Come along!”
You’ll be in your element.
Early One Morning – a giant globe made from matchsticks by artist Andy Yoder, who spent two years hand-painting individual matches, gluing each one to a foam, cardboard and plywood sphere then finally spraying the whole thing with flame retardant (come on now. He’s not a total eejit).
The piece goes on display this summer at the PULSE New York Contemporary Art Fair.
