There is a greater danger to dear Erin than Landlordism and drunkeness. And it goes by the name of JAZZ
Since 1934 we have been crusading against this filthy foreign noise, this source of scandal and ruin.
The campaign continue with a PUBLIC RALLY in Meeting House Square, Temple Bar, Dublin 2 on August 24th/25th/26th.
It is known that a motley crew of Irish Jazz acts will be performing for FREE over three days at this city centre location.
We say DOWN WITH JAZZ!

Expect all styles and none, at this free 3 day festival, with a line-up that includes up and coming bands like OKO and Redivider, funky populists like Max Zazka and Mixtapes from The Underground, and established names like Michael Buckley and Christine Tobin. Between sets there’ll be solo improvs and hot-cat activity telling the story of Irish jazz, with vintage vinyls on the decks giving late-night flavour of the music that caused all the fuss in the first place.» View the full line up
