Action Bronson - Main - Tom Gould

Action Bronson just dropped his major label debut Mr Wonderful (it should be called Mrs Wonderful he shouts out his ma so much on it).

It has some great tracks ‘Baby Blue’, ‘Easy Rider’, ‘Terry’ and ‘Actin Crazy’ (see below) but it’s live really where the food-loving dude (who has an online show called Fuck, That’s Delicious) shines.

Which is good as he’s playing The Academy later in the year on September 10th. Tickets are on sale Friday at 10am priced at €26.50+fees.

After its launch last year, Musictown has now revealed the lineup for the 2015 edition of the city festival that celebrates Dublin as a muse with performances in unusual locations and landmark buildings this April. Participants include Glen Hansard, Hank Shocklee of Public Enemy, Seán Mac Erlaine, Damien Dempsey and Aslan.

The programme features:

The event will feature performances by Seán Mac Erlaine (woodwind/electronics), Seán Carpio (percussion/guitar/loops), Jack McMahon (turntables), and Shane Latimer (guitar/electronics), fiddle player tbc, in the IFI on Friday 10th April.
