A4 Sounds are super excited and extra delighted to present the first of our quarterly fundraiser gigs for 2015, once more returning to the cosy confines of the inimitable Bleecker Street Cafe Bar on Saturday 28th February.
The lineup includes A4 Sounds’ studio member and all-round hyper-talented Cal Folger Day, whose second release, Adornament, is just out on Reeks of Effort records, as well as the rising stars of Dublin’s live scene, the inimitably named grunge / rock / noise outfit Bitch Falcon. Joining them for a special Dublin show are Rivers and Crows, an awesome alternative folk collective hailing from the wild west of Galway. This promises to be an unforgettable night, with an eclectic mix of music and shovel-loads of craic.
We are fast approaching the first anniversary of getting the keys to our new studio headquarters, AND our 6th birthday as an organisation. To celebrate this, we are running a special offer for the month of February; 6 months membership for the price of 5! That’s right, if you join us during February this year, by signing up for 6 month’s basic membership, you’ll get one of these month’s membership absolutely free!
The number of memberships available is limited, so if you are interested in please get in touch as soon as possible via our membership contact form.
Membership will give you 24/7 access to our shared workspaces, workshop, project & meeting room, electronics area, photographic darkroom, screen-printing, workshop, printers, scanners, shared tools and equipment. And coming soon in 2015, we’ll have our sound room/recording studio, and gallery & event space coming online.

A4er Michael Kunze is a member of Blue Heart Theatre. They have 7 days to go on their Fund it campaign for a new production of Paula Vogel’s award winning play, ‘The Baltimore Waltz’.
If you like what they do….give them some support!!!
“Blue Heart Theatre are an exciting new company formed partly from former and existing members of Acting Out, Dublin’s LGBT community theatre and some new collaborators. Blue Heart aim to present new and unknown plays in Ireland and the UK, in a fresh and innovative way.
This serious comedy was American playwright Vogel’s response to the death of her brother, who died from complications due to AIDS. Whilst it has established itself as a modern American classic, this will be its first professional production in Ireland. We intend to put the play on in March, 2015 in Dublin and Sligo.”
