CASTLEBAR BOUND Galway synth-wave band Bury Me With My Money.
Mayo’s best-known independent music label, Umbrella Records, is presenting some really exciting and interesting talent from Connacht in Garbo’s live venue in Castlebar on April 3.
Synth-wave band Bury Me With My Money – known to many for their single ‘Grow’, released last year – are co-heading the event with punk/folk performer Myles Manley. Opening the night is New York singer/songwriter Ray Brown.
Garbo’s has been steadily presenting more and more original home-grown music over the past few years, and the venue is now teaming up with Umbrella Records to start bringing in more ‘out there’ Irish music.
Umbrella helped establish the Claremorris Folk Festival in 2019, which was a huge success, with plans afoot to run it again in 2020. However, the music the label is also focused on incubating and promoting alternative rock, math rock, new-wave, synth-wave, prog and generally alternative music in the west. The brains behind the label hope that their fellow Mayo men and women, who are aligned with these same musical interests, will make the effort to join them in Garbo’s and support them in their live endeavor, and help to spearhead a modern musical movement in the region.
Doors open at 9pm on April 3. Early bird tickets, €10 each, are available from Garbo’s or through Ticketweb.ie.
