The Masqued Samhain Cabaret Saturday, 01 November 2014 Adm: €10 and €8 (concession) Doors open 8:30pm

New original music, spoken word, short film, comedy, dance and classic cabaret: it’s all at The Cáca Milis Cabaret, Saturday, 01 November at 9pm in Arthur’s Live, 28 Thomas St. between Vicar Street and Guinness’s. The full bar and candle-lit tables create the perfect setting for its “post-modern vaudeville” with original artists and their work, a lot of fun and all of the finest calibre.
There’ll be costume, carnival, ciné horror and a murder ballad or two from Hostess Helena Mulkerns, accompanied by Cabaret Pianoman, musical director Josh Johnston. We’re excited to present the stunning talents of Kit Fryatt – whose Wurm im Apfel poetry events and alternative press have been at the cutting edge of the field.  We’re proud to welcome back Eamon Carr, who set up the late 60s poetry and performance collective Tara Telephone, before co-founding Horslips.  His recent work includes Haiku and drama. Sweet-voiced and soulful, songwriter and storyteller Helena Byrne joins us to perform some of her haunting new original work, accompanied by Josh Johnston. In our Ciné Sweetcake slot: Romantic Hideaway – a truly creepy short film by Andrew T. Wright – just right for Samhain. The superlative Su Hamilton will present some unique Circus Arts, featuring a spectacular new Contact Juggling act.  Delivering another amazing fusion of movement, dancer and burlesque diva Kate Finegan performs Day of the Dead Tribal Acrobalance – don’t miss either of them! And for a little of the Devil’s Music – what better than the formidable, flash-fingered guitar talents of Slidin’ PK and the Junkyard Duo, playing New Orleans and Piedmont Blues. Top of the night, one of our favourite bi-lingual performers, golden-voiced songster Enda Reilly, whose recent CD is rocking our world, and will be available for sale at the gig.
Finally, don’t miss the opportunity to pick up your copy of that commendable tome, Red Lamp Black Piano: The Cáca Milis Anthology, with its unique introduction by Patrick McCabe, and selection of writers and poets who have appeared at this eventing of the arts. With more music to be announced, raffle prizes, and a spot prize for the best retro and seasonal garb, (masks optional) it will be a great night, please join us. Show starts at 9pm (seated 8:45) Admission is €10 or €8 Food and fine refreshments. Book ahead through Entertainment.ie: e1.ie/2put or call 086-20-20-289.
