Secondly any remaining funds will go to Sasane, a charity that provides support, education and training for victims of sex trafficking in Nepal. 


Coldnose (London)

Coldnose creates dirty Techno beats inspired by Electro, D’n’B, Acid and Industrial. Improvised jams are recomposed and organized into songs. Live performances are spontaneous and can go in any direction, which is why each live set is different, semi-improvised you could say, especially with the distorted vocals that expresses frustration, pleasure, nonsense and rage.

You might know Elaine from Morning Veils/Altered Hours/Crevice and Crevice and Wry Myrrh are 2 projects multitalented Irene is involved in, among many others. They recently performed new music at Cork’s Sounds from a Safe Harbour festival. Irene will be doing double duty. Buy her a beer.

Irene Buckley & David Colohan (Cork/Ballymahon)
