Right2Water National Assembly on Wednesday

If I started writing about this now I might not get this post finished in time for the march on Wednesday.

Here is a pretty good summary of what’s been happening so far.

Here is a useful video that attempts to expose how farcical the tendering process is.

Here is a video that will help you and your community prevent water meters getting installed in your neighbourhood. It also demonstrates the fact that the contractors haven’t a clue (a job’s a job tho innit?).

I don’t want to be making any predictions about Wednesday in terms of what it might lead to but it’s going to be a BIG FUCKING DEAL.

Paul White

Paul White returns to Dublin on Friday. One of the best hip-hop producers of the last few years. Then he goes and changes up the styles on his last album and brought in a load of live instrumentation to create some blissed-out psych and dub-pop. What’s dub-pop I hear you say? I haven’t a clue, go listen to the album though yeah?

I brought him over previously and MANY people on the night said to me it was the best gig they’d seen all year (it was June so it had won over at least 6 months of gigs).

Gonna try and get to both this and the Press Charges launch on the night, stunt doubles out the ying yang mang.

SHAMELESS SELF-PROMOTION OPPORTUNITY:

Redmonk – Paul White Mix by Redmonk on Mixcloud

Here’s a mix I did for the aforementioned Paul White gig from 2.5 years ago. All his productions from various albums. More on the hip-hop/beats tip than the new stuff. QUITE GOOD. Various people ‘in the know’ at the time probably said:

“This is the best 22-minute mix of some of Paul White’s music, in that exact order, available to stream online, that I have ever heard in my life”

YOU WOULD BE MAD NOT TO LISTEN TO IT.
