Gig in The Fringe Factory Saturday 12th September | Oh! Francis & Fringe Festival

Tuesday, August 25th, 2009

Venue: The Fringe Factory, Smock Alley, Essex Street West, Dublin.
Date: Saturday 12th September 2009
Time: 2pm
Promoter: Oh! Francis & Fringe Festival

I’ll be performing at The Fringe Factory in Smock Alley, Dublin as part of a collaboration between Oh! Francis magazine and the Dublin Fringe Festival.

“Oh! Fringe?!
12 magazines at 12 noon and their 4 quarters. An issue for every day the Fringe Festival is running. Are we mad? Yes, yes we are, but Francis told us to do it, so we will.
We’ll be printing, binding and collating each issue in the Fringe Factory, Essex Street West, from the 5th to the 20th of September. Drop in and do a boogie, a tap of the foot or maybe even a spot of chin rubbing. Not only have we decided to rustle up 12 loverly Oh! Fringe magazines and their 4 quarters we’re also curating an exhibition and some Oh, Francis style gigs. Collect the limited edition magazines every day at noon to find out more. Collect them all and solve the jigsaw.”
