Exhibition-Moon Bounce- Funded by Grow Wild 2019
Sep 5 @ 6:00 pm – Sep 29 @ 6:00 pm

Moon Bounce! Funded by Grow Wild 2019!

Come along to The Green Room to view an exhibition of Moon Bounce! Our Moon Base group members took part in a series of environmental workshops, creating Eco-art and grew their own Mushrooms as part of this project! The grand finale was ‘Moon Bounce’ – the group went down to Clandeboye Estate in Bangor and planted wild flower seeds, learnt to make potato bread on a campfire, played music, had a dance workshop with Charmaine McMeekin and got on down to some Moon Beats provided by our Black Moon DJ’s! The wild flowers have now grown into a beautiful wild flower meadow and we will be exhibiting photographs mapping out the project from start to finish.

CULTURE NIGHT feat New Pagans, Careerist & Problem Patterns
Sep 20 @ 8:00 pm
For Culture Night 2019 and in association with Zero Myth we are delighted to present NEW PAGANs with special guests CAREERIST & PROBLEM PATTERNS.
Problem Patterns 8pm
Careerist 9pm
New Pagans 10.30pm

New Pagans create music that is vivid and engaged. The songs have massive riffs and rare dynamics. The lyrics are ready to start conversations and challenge the given ideas. Every release is a throwdown, a provocation, an education.

The band is based in Belfast but the band members are drawn from across the north. Lyndsey comes from Enniskillen and is mid-way through a PhD course at University of Ulster. Cahir, her partner, was raised in Derry and has a blazing history with acts like Fighting With Wire, Jetplane Landing and Frank Turner. Drummer Conor McAuley is from Belfast and has served with Balkan Alien Sound. Bassist Claire has been active with Girls Names and Cruising while Allan ran with Rupture Dogs.

Their first release for 2019 is an exceptional, loud reckoning. ‘It’s Darker’ refers to a messy party incident. A musician became aggressive and wouldn’t tolerate Lyndsey’s opinions. “That’s where the original anger comes from – a confrontation. It’s happened to me a few times. It’s like, ‘oh you’re a girl, you should just shut up’. A Feminist anger came from that. Yes, I should be able to have an opinion. And it can be different to yours.”

Careerist is a rock band from Belfast (formerly known as Hop Cops)
described as ‘one of the most exciting and idiosyncratic Irish indie-rock bands of a generation’ – The Thin Air

Problem Patterns is Ciara King, Beverley Boal, Bethany Crooks and Alanah Smith. While often lyrically tongue in cheek, no subject is off limits. They use their songwriting cathartically, venting frustrations on everything from political distress to personal conflicts.
