Calling all Blues music fans . . .

The Blues. It's both a feeling and a kind of music. As Paddy says himself, "You either feel it...or you don't."

No one is sure whether the blues caught up with Paddy or if Paddy caught up with the blues, but it doesn't matter. They're here now. Together. Whether he's been living in Ireland, Chicago or California, the blues has been inescapable and ever present in Paddy's life. Most notably, he lost his 17-year-old daughter to cystic fibrosis in 2010.

In 2016, Paddy also released a 4-song EP called 'Ran Out of Road.' He's currently working on new original material for a record launch in 2018!

Show starts @ 8p.m. Tickets: e25 available from the Box Office 051-874402 or http://www.theatreroyal.ie

Now 10 years on, the anticipation for their return is high with just a limited amount of tickets available at the venue on the night. When Mercury Rev's Deserter's Songs was released in 1998, it kick-started one of the greatest, and most unexpected second acts in music history. They had been known for making indie rock

ReTech are delighted to welcome the Waterford debut of COSMIN TRG, alongside our their resident Alan Harris on Saturday April 21st. Tickets 10/12 euro and available from EventBrite.

A singular voice, an idiosyncratic approach of Techno and a firm command of the dancefloor have turned Cosmin TRG into one of dance music's ubiquitous figures. Throughout a career spanning almost a decade, Berlin-based Romanian producer and DJ Cosmin Nicolae has released music with Hessle Audio, Hemlock, Running Back, Rush Hour, 50Weapons, buidling a diverse and iconoclastic catalog in the process.

Taking cues from 90s era leftfield electronics, warehouse techno, the pioneers of early lab recordings and minimal film scores, Cosmin TRG has created his own brand of modern, textural sonics in a contemporary context. His flair for abstract, low-end drum section methodology and a natural propensity for sculpting arresting soundscapes out of contrasting

Underworld - Rise Of The Lycans

If you've ever watched one of the Underworld movies, and God knows there are a lot to choose from, then you'll know that the whole premise of the films is about the war between vampires and werewolves and how great Kate Beckinsale looks in skin tight rubber. Kate Beckinsale isn't really in this movie which is a bit of a surprise considering that she is the main character in all of the Underworld franchise but the film still is about the war between vampires and werewolves. In this particular case the vampires have the upper hand and have a lot of werewolves working as slaves for them. They also provide protection for humans who have to deal with werewolf incursions on their land. These werewolves are feral and never revert to their human part and

    Religious ToleranceAt a public meeting last week to discuss the plans for a new mosque in Kilkenny, it seemed that out of the crowd of approximately 200 that attended, the overwhelming majority were against the idea. While it was reported that most people were against the addition of the mosque to Kilkenny life due to logistical reasons, it was also reported, and quite prominently, that there were more than a few people who were vocally opposed to the whole idea of a any sort of mosque being built on rel …
