Casiotone For The Painfully Alone. Go.

Casiotone For The Painfully Alone, coming to Ireland for a few gigs this week, and certainly worth checking out. Owen Ashworth's is an often ramshackle but always engrossing style. He is a creator of minute yet tender vignettes, his mild baritone countering the melodic insistence of his battery powered electronic soundscapes. For those unitiated, the gorgeous video to "Nashville Parthenon":

These are the places and times during which you can observe said vignettes:
  • Róisin Dubh. Galway. Friday, March 7.
  • Black Box Cafe. Belfast. Saturday, March 8.
  • Whelan's. Dublin. Sunday, March 9.
If you find yourself in attendance, then do keep your fingers crossed for a performance of Springsteen's "Streets Of Philadelphia". A mean cover, it is easily located on his MySpace. Go forth, via yonder above linkage.
