RHA’s Hennessy Lost Friday returns for its final instalment of 2017 on Friday, October 20.
As with previous events, Lost Fridays will showcase some of the Irish music scene's hottest talents within the ambient seeting of the Royal Hibernian Gallery.
First up on the night is Dublin band Columbia Mills. Taking their name from the legendary building based on Dublin's Quays, which in the early 90s became a mecca for fans of the rave scene, they're a delicious melting pot of 80s and 90s influences, managing to sound both startlingly original and yet familiar.
They'll be joined by alt-funkers Come On Live Long, who are known for their distinctive blend of exquisite melodies, driving rhythms and ethereal landscapes. In between acts, there will also be tunes from resident Whelan's DJ Alex Donald, who will be conjuring up a heady mix of electro, house, hip-hop, pop and rock.
Those who arrive early can enjoy unique walking tours of the RHA's current exhibitions, Plunge by Vera Klute in Gallery I, and Strange Attractors by Ronnie Hughes in Galleries II & III, conducted by RHA Director Patrick T. Murphy.
Visitors can also experience a tasting masterclass with a Hennessy Brand Ambassador. Throughout the night, Hennessy's expert mixologists will create bespoke Hennessy-based cocktails, including Hennessy & Ginger and the famed Hennessy Sidecar.
