Live Night October 7th 2014
Creepy Jimmy - Preview
Jimmy, an innocent and very eccentric thirty-six year old from Bray has been very busy since his two best friends Mammy and Daddy died, exactly twenty-seven and a half weeks ago. There’s been the failed Skeleton Museum Project, the Precious Childrens' Playtime Van and Party Bus (vetoed by Tomek as being inappropriate and possibly illegal), The Hairy Dolly Proposal (a work-in-progress) and finally his new Doggie Portrait business which seems to be going well so far…Husband and wife team Aaron (writer and starring) and Sarah (director) Lennon Ross will be presenting a preview of their one man dark comedy as a taster for their show in the Mermaid on October 23rd. "Charming, Touching and very very quirky" and "different from the norm", (Alan Foran, www.theredcurtainreview.com), we very much look forward to seeing what this Creepy Jimmy character has to offer at our live night!
It's almost like a Space Inside tradition now! We always love to have Conor and friends at our live nights, all first night of the season will open wit a musical bang! From a musical family, Conor has toured the states several times with various acts and plays a lot of shows now with his current band, The Big Muddy. He also is the visionary founder of one of Ireland’s hottest music festivals, the Americana Roots Weekend in Greystones which is going into its fifth year and just keeps getting bigger and better.Conor will give us his lively version of songs from the likes of Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash, Gillian Welch and Townes Van Zandt.
