Gruß vom Krampus
Dec 15 @ 7:00 pm

We are delighted to be showing ‘Gruß vom Krampus’ for an alternative seasonal film screening this December in The Green Room.

Young men have fun by dressing up in frightening, elaborate Krampus costumes. Traditionally on December 5th “Krampusnacht” is when large cohorts of these “Krampuses” run through the streets of town squares around Austria merrymaking. The documentary “Greetings from Krampus” by female director Gabriele Neudecker points out why this last bastion of men is fascinating to young people in Austria and gives a glimpse of the Krampus runs as a cross between male masquerade, ritual beatings and long standing tradition. “Greetings from Krampus” is awarded with five international prizes so far.

So come along and enjoy this exclusive screening and pair it with a mulled wine and Krampus themed toastie!

Maria Somerville
Dec 22 @ 8:00 pm

Maria Somerville draws on conventional folk forms alongside post-punk, traditional Irish motifs, starry eyed pop and hypnotic drones to create wholly original music that is borne of her roots in Connemara, Western Ireland.

Her debut album All My People (self-released on 1 March and distributed by Rush Hour), channels the wilderness of the Irish landscape through dense, ethereal soundscapes, bare boned percussion and a heady electronic undertow, interspersed with ghostly vocals that are ever present and all encompassing, like crystalline glints of sunshine peeking through dark stormy clouds.

Her enigmatic and enthralling live show comes in both solo and band shape (born of ties with fellow Irish mavericks Davy Kehoe and the Wah Wah Wino crew).

‘With lazily strummed electric guitar and full-bodied organ chords shining through the lo-fi production like a milky sun, she waltzes through the shoegazing ballad with wonderment’ — The Guardian

‘gorgeous, hazy, distant-but-intimate dream pop’ — Gorilla vs Bear

‘shades of ambient haze and murky drones’ — Resident Advisor
