Marcus Patton’s work ranges from screenprints to watercolours and cartoons, often depicting buildings which he depicts with an architect’s knowledge, an artist’s sympathy or a cartoonist’s barb – and sometimes all three at once. This exhibition should provide a reflection on the European Heritage Open Days and the current state of town planning in Northern Ireland.

Friday 28th September. Doors 8pm.
£7 (Black Box members £5.50)
We are delighted to present Belfast’s finest purveyors of bittersweet guitar pop. Sea Pinks perform live at the Black Box to mark the release of their seventh album ‘Rockpool Blue’.
Rockpool Blue is the seventh album by Sea Pinks. At 28 minutes, it’s a short record about the pressure of taking on adult responsibilities when you still feel like a kid, and about the unexpected joy that can come from embracing that. Throughout, the band shrug off the ambivalence that has often characterised their best work for what turns out to be their most cohesive, outward looking and ultimately positive set of songs to date.
Music City is the new band from Conor Lumsden of The #1s fame, due to release their debut single on Static Shock Records in the near future.
Should be a banger.
Live: Belfast Black Box – September 28th 2018, Dublin Bello Bar – October 19th 2018
