The G-Man presents... A Low Trees promotion

Yawning Chasm, North Side Drive & Rory Francis O'Brien

The Roundy, 1 Castle Street (Cork)
Friday 17th August
Doors at 9pm - first band at 9.30pm

Following a successful first outing (and melodically magical sets from both little xs for eyes and The David Nelligan Thing), the second The G-Man Presents... promotion returns to The Roundy on Castle Street for an evening of wonderful original music. Pairing local bands, songwriters and composers with their national and international peers, these evenings are soundtracked by the various artists that have featured prominently on Cork-based alternative music blog www.thegmanworld.com.

Yawning Chasm

Yawning Chasm is a three piece from Galway, Ireland centred around songwriter and singer Aaron Coyne, who has operated under the name since the early 2000's. Coyne was joined in 2011 by Declan Kelly who provided live keyboards and guitar and in 2012 by Jimmy Monaghan on drums.

Having wowed all in attendance as support for Mike Gangloff in Plugd Records as part of a Black Sun bill back in March, experimental Galwegian folkies Yawning Chasm return to Leeside with beautifully dark new EP Butterfly and Crab in tow. What Red House Painters would have sounded like if had found themselves lost in a deep, dank, dark cave.

'Wolves' (Bon Iver cover) - www.youtube.com/watch?v=jSmYHU94yUU

"Eerie, evocative, graceful piano and strings from Former Monarchs’ drummer Jonathan Pearson which will remind you of the minimalist panache of Hauschka and Nils Frahm."
Jim Carroll - Irish Times

Rory Francis O'Brien

Better known for intricate guitar work as one third of incendiary bog-rockers Ten Past Seven, Rory Francis O'Brien's solo work with innovative guitarist James Fortune (19th Light) has taken on a life of its own, the blues-folk workings evolving organically over the past 18 months.
