A buzzing Good Friday of music at Fred Zeppelins

Wednesday, 17th April, 2019 4:15pm

Fred Zeppelins is set to play host to a special night of punk poetry and hip hop this Good Friday.

Following on from last year’s show, Jinx Lennon and Wasps vs Humans return on Friday 19 April, this time joined by special guests, Dundalk hip-hop duo TPM.

One of Ireland’s best-loved punk poets, Dundalk performer Jinx Lennon has wowed and shocked audiences for the last 20 years with his subversive take on the idea of ‘singer/songwriter’.

Touching on topics from Xanax to the health service and Castleblayney, Lennon’s work is a barbed, wry sigh of exasperation, encapsulated by his ninth studio album ‘Grow a Pair’, which was released last year.

A hip-hop duo from Dundalk, TPM are brothers Charles and Andrew Hendy, showing the world what life is like on social welfare payments in their town with tunes like ‘All the Boys on the Dole’ and ‘Eat That Curry’.

Since 2015, TPM have been performing their anarchic, spontaneous live shows at festivals and venues including Electric Picnic, Body and Soul and Glastonbury.

Wasps vs Humans has shared the stage with John Cooper Clarke, Christy Moore and Scroobius Pip. Following his first novel ‘The Mattress’ in 2016, the punk poet has just published his latest novella ‘Evel America’, the story of a man who lives through his American alter ego combining dare devil Evel Knievel and ‘70s American TV shows.

Musically, Wasps vs Humans has also released an LP and single with UK-based ‘80s experimental band 4,000,000 Telephones, with more recent collaborations including two singles with Cork-based music producers and composers Peter Power and Dave Duffy.

All three perform this Good Friday 19 April at Fred Zeppelins. Tickets are €10 and doors are at 9pm.
