With the return of Twin Peaks to our TV screens (I’ve really been enjoying the trip on a visual level and the multi-layered narrative), it seems like the right time then that a Lynchian event might take place.
The Twin Freaks Festival is a one-day event happening on the 12th of August in the Wicklow countryside (Ballyhook Hill, Grangecon) inspired by Lynch and all his creations.
Music, art, film and performance is promised with music coming from Katie Kim, Paddy Kelleher, Cobra Truth, Brian Conniffe and more.
The National Concert Hall are putting on a homage night to the director of Twin Peaks, Blue Velvet and many more, David Lynch, on November 18th.
In Dreams: David Lynch Revisited will feature Lynch-associated songs the likes of Conor O’Brien (Villagers), Mick Harvey (ex-Bad Seeds), Sophia Brous (Brous, pictured), Cibo Matto, Jehnny Beth (Savages), Stealing Sheep, Kirin J Callinan and Stuart Staples (Tindersticks), all supported by a band assembled and led by musical director David Coulter. Songs which may be included could come from Angelo Badalamenti, Roy Orbison, David Bowie, Chris Isaak, Samuel Barber, Marilyn Manson and Elvis Presley.
Tickets are from €37.50 – €42.50 + fee on Tel: 01 417 00 00 or www.nch.ie
