Tribute to Nick Cave...

Good things happening in Ranelagh Art Centre all the time. Some of you remember this place from my ‘Coffee Flavour’ exhibition a few months ago (please see the link LINK) ;)
Last Friday and Saturday on the first floor in the room lightened only by the candles David Noone had his very personal concert - tribute to Nick Cave.
About an hour of a really good performance wormed up by fantastic atmosphere. On December last year I was working with David on promotional portraits for this gig (please see the link LINK).
Friday afternoon we met again to take a few portraits during David's dress rehearsal.

A few words from press release:

‘Writer and musician, David Noone will perform his unique take on the music of the legendary Nick Cave, at the Ranelagh Arts Centre in February. In this intimate acoustic concert, David will perform the songs of one of his favourite songwriters whom he believes to be possibly the greatest lyricist to have emerged in the last thirty years.  

David grew up in Rathangan, Co. Kildare, where he began his writing career as a music journalist with local newspapers. Moving to Dublin, he formed his first band 'Poppy' and then spent three years as lead singer and songwriter with 'David Noone and the Night Porters'. He has also published a collection of poetry -'My Cat's a Vicious Drunk' and his first play - 'Ructions' was performed at the 2010 Ranelagh Arts Festival.'

As far as i know, both David’s performances were not the last this year...
