As is our wont, the next State Faces show is going to be a real culture clasher – bringing together four acts from across the musical spectrum at the Mercantile on March 7th. In the electronic corner we have two of the finest practitioners in Ireland today – the alternative R&B influenced Kobina (pictured) and luscious ambient duo Benihana. Old Hannah, meanwhile, sit at the organic end of the scale with a mix of bluegrass and traditional sounds. Completing the bill are The Dead Sets, new kids on the fiery rock ‘n’ roll block.
Doors are at 8pm and, as also our wont, it’s free in all night.
