Be it single downloads, funky new remixes or even bumper gigs – when it comes to getting musical freebies, we’re a little bit spoiled for choice in this country. Now, here’s your chance to give a little something back. Some of Ireland’s most promising electronic beat-makers and visual extraordinaires are coming together and taking their respective treats on the road in what they are calling the Lightbox tour.
The tour will have 7 acts: Bantum, Feel Good Lost, Monto, Reid, Sert One, Simon Bird and Tenaka and will call into Dublin, Limerick, Cork, Galway, Belfast and Waterford over a week at the end of February. There will be interactive workshops before each gig, where people can get a feel for how the audio-visual work on offer is composed, as well as guest DJ slots from Nialler9, Jim Carroll, Logicparty and Ian Malaney.
Obviously, there are costs involved here and this is where you come in. Lighbox have set up a FundIt page where you can contribute to the tour and in return receive a personalised reward such as a special album featuring unreleased material or even a gig in your own gaff. Naturally times are tight at present but whether you can afford a little or a lot, this is a great opportunity to be part of a commendable DIY movement and give a little something back.
There’s less than 10 days in which Lightbox must reach their target so get involved and spread the word.
