Japanese Music Legend in Letterkenny

 Japanese Music Legend in Letterkenny


Legendary Japanese singer and former frontman of the brilliant German krautrock group Can returns to Donegal on Wednesday May 24th for a non-seated gig at Regional Cultural Centre Letterkenny.


He currently leads the Damo Suzuki Network – that tours and performs wild live improvisational music all over the world with specially formed local sound carrier collectives.


The Derry four-piece alternative rock group The Wood Burning Savages will take the role of sound carriers for the night. According to Stephen McCauley, BBC Radio Ulster “Ferocious intelligence, primitive abandon and excoriating tendencies! In troubled times, the world needs punk rock heroes – The Wood Burning Savages are punk rock heroes!” 


Support on the night is provided by Invaderband. According to The Thin Air “Invaderband’s idiosyncratic brand of garage-laced artrock betrays the hallmarks of a band content in doing things their way without neglecting the power of the hook.” BBC 6 Music’s Steve Lamacq said Invaderband were “Sly and cunning with a great hook. I really like this.”


The gig starts at 8pm, tickets priced €10 are available from An Grianán Theatre Box Office on 0749120777 or online at RCC concerts are presented in partnership with Earagail Arts Festival and Donegal Music Education Partnership
