With the combination of the Live Performance Support Scheme and the success of the Government's test gigs at the Iveagh Gardens and the Royal Hospital Kilmainham, we are on the verge of a huge explosion of music activity. As part of our Summer of Music 2021 special feature, we're taking a look at some of the most eagerly anticipated events of the summer...
Nealo at The Workman’s Club
Where: The Workman’s Club, 10 Wellington Quay, Temple Bar, Dublin
When: August 13 & 14
Who: Dublin hip-hop star Nealo
What: Influenced by Chicago’s jazz-influenced rap scene, Irish artist Nealo fused that genre with R&B and soul to deliver a powerful album, tackling universal themes for young people in Ireland: emigration, substance abuse and the loss of loved ones. All The Leaves Are Falling earned him a Choice Music Prize nomination in 2020 for Irish Album of the Year, and a spot on Hot Press’ Hot for 2021 list. As well as heading to the Button Factory in October, Nealo had scheduled play a number of special, intimate gigs at Dublin’s Workman’s Club in August.
Make sure to: Listen to Nealo’s new single ‘Without You’ with Carrie Baxter.
Tickets: Sold out. See theworkmansclub.com
