We Play Here & Plugd Weekender
Cork music zine We Play Here makes a welcome return this Saturday with its second issue.
The publications launch fittingly coincides with Record Store Day, an event that seeks to shine a positive light on the physical manifestations of art in an increasingly digital world.
The same team that brought us issue one is back, but this time around The Point Of Everything’s Eoghan O’Sullivan, Brad McLoughlin, Eimear O’Donovan and Emmet O’Brien have cast their net further afield.
There are interviews with Meltybrains? and Croupier, a retrospective look back at Fred’s 15 year career, as well as features on Limerick’s music scene past and present, women in music and film production companies in Cork like Feel Good Lost. Add to that the always stellar photography of Bríd O’Donovan and original artwork by Paul ‘Sunless’ O’Reilly and you’ve got another stunning and original document.
Naturally there’s an official launch happening in Plugd Records / Triskel with lots of bands playing over the weekend. Sure where else would you be?
