The Alkove are a five-piece Cork-based band who deal in blues, soul and rock and roll. The bands original material has been likened to CCR, The Stones, Oasis, Bill Withers, Stevie Wonder, The Kinks among many others. Having recently released their 3rd single “Wait A Minute”, and played Cork Opera House with Aslan, the band are currently combining hard gigging with additional studio work. The live shows are where the band are most at home. The Burma are an indie rock n’roll band based in Cork City. Influenced by the American Indie scene of the early 2000’s and British guitar bands of the 80s and 90s, The Burma’s jangly guitars and bouncy basslines make for refreshingly melodic songs.

Bennie Reilly’s work has always dealt with aspects of the natural world and its peculiarities. Her latest exhibition, The New Past, is a collection of paintings and sculptural objects that present a flux of both accepted and questionable historical fact. Informed by an interest in museology, it is built upon an eclectic accumulation of curios and photographic research.
