Quarter Block Party returns to The Green Room at Cork Opera House in 2023.
Craic Boi Mental – rapper, producer and activist from Cork City, with a knack for lo-fi production and an innate ear for an inescapable hook. His relentless work ethic and deeply idiosyncratic style have built him a Cult following worldwide. Now he’s fresh off the back of his sold Out US tour & looking forward to performing once again for his Irish fans.
Raja Baal is the alternative hip hop project of Cork-based artist/producer Brendan Fennessy. The project came into being when Fennessy sent stream-of-consciousness drum recordings to friends with the single instruction to record whatever they wanted on top. The results were a striking palette of fuzzy, blown-out funk, baroque pop, jazz, afrobeat and psychedelic soul. Fennessy’s vocal approach alternates between rapping, singing and spoken word, with lyrics that set out to deconstruct the limiting security blanket of coolness which often surrounds male artists/bands – instead pushing toward presenting a bright, connective and inviting energy.
