London five-piece band play their Dublin debut.
The Last Dinner Party’s rise to large stages was rapid enough for the cynical to call them industry plants, but the truth is the band just have high-profile management in QPrime (Metallica, Muse, The Murder Capital), have decent booking representation (CAA), and are signed to a major (Universal) already.
Having established their industry credentials early on, the band have played most UK and European festivals including Glastonbury and Electric Picnic, supported Hozier on his arena tour and have released two fine singles – both of a guitar pop persuasion with clear classic pop and Abba influences – to date.
So news of their debut Dublin date in The Workman’s Club, Dublin on Tuesday 19th December is likely to be the smallest place to see the band for a while – as the play a late night show on a Tuesday before Christmas.
Doors are at 11pm that night (they are supporting Hozier that week you see).. it’s over 18s and tickets are €17.45 plus fees.
The band have UK dates in October, EU in November and play support to Hozier in Dublin and Belfast that week. See their tour dates.
About The Last Dinner Party
Conceived during a wine-stained evening in Brixton, the name embodies a musical and aesthetic ethos of decadence, mystery, spectacle and charm. Finding artistry in the intersection between the beautiful, sublime and grotesque, the band are guided by their favourite Romantic poets and Gothic novelists.
The preceding years of isolation and anxiety have only served to heighten The Last Dinner Party’s creative appeal as they usher in a new era of unashamed maximalism and untethered euphoria. They cast their net of inspiration across artists and genres, from Kate Bush and David Bowie, glam rock and new wave, to unexpected moments of twelve-bar blues, classical overture and heavy synth breakdowns.
Singer Abigaille, guitarists Emily and Lizzie, keyboardist Aurora and bassist Georgia weave a fantasy of haunting melodies, explosive choruses, and lyrics that embrace tragedy and triumph in equal measure. At their shows, the band lead audiences through the soaring crescendos and pin-drop silences of the most debaucherous dinner parties, gathering a dedicated and growing company of attendees with every performance.
The band is currently based in London, writing, recording, and preparing for their next spectacle.
