We’ve had a busy few months here at Tiger Corp. We’ve completed a tour of Austria, Czech Republic and Slovakia, topped it off with some shows in London, and also somehow managed to fit in a week in Paris and moving house. (I had a hard time finding wifi on the road, so my tour blogs weren’t published. Photos from the tour, and blogs will follow here soon.)
And now, as I’m back home, not living out of a suitcase, and things were settling down again… everything starts to take off again.
I’ll be in London this weekend playing a solo set at Urban Fog (http://urbanfog.net/). Urban Fog is an art installation and tea house, led by Atelier ChanChan. Situated between art and architecture the installation is the collaborative effort of Zoe Chan (of Atelier ChanChan), and designers Sarah Khan, Mickey Kloihofer and Mariana Pestana. They’re creating “a momentary community event in what was previously a derelict urban void”. They’ll be selling tea, cake and tea cocktails from their lovely stalls… What more could you want? (It’s in N16 near the Dalston Kingsland underground. I’ll be playing on Sat approx : 6-8pm and Sunday approx : 2-4pm)
Upon my return to Ireland, I’ll be playing a few shows around the country. I’ll refer you to the shows page for all the finer details, but I’m playing a few great venues around the country with Dave Redmond, and a few solo openers, and last but not least, two triple bills with Colm Lynch and Fiach. :
31st May – Kenny’s, Lahinch
1st June – The Locke, Limerick
4th June – Upstairs in Whelan’s, Dublin 2 (opening)
5th June – Apollo Sessions, Dublin 2 (taking part in their 2nd birthday bash)
9th June – Workman’s Club, Dublin 2 (opening for Suzanne Savage’s EP launch)
10th June – Róisín Dubh, Galway (Triple bill with Colm Lynch and Fiach)
23rd June – Odessa, Dublin 2 (Triple bill with Colm Lynch and Fiach)
We’re also pleased to announce that we’ll be playing as part of Münsterfest this September. So, if you’re in Germany and you’d like to see us in your town/city/home/event, please do get in touch!
That’s all for now! Blogs from the Eastern European Tour will follow soon… in the meantime here are some not-very-arty or high quality shots from our travels! http://www.flickr.com/photos/tigercooke/sets/72157626621003295/
