Kele Okereke Has Mama’s Support

With our competition for tickets to Kele Okereke’s Dublin gig on the 16th of May now closed (and thanks to everyone who entered), perhaps a swift update on songs, support and all sorts of other things beginning with “s” that I doubt I’ll have time to get into after all. I’m such a tease, alliteration junkies.

First off, here’s Kele’s first single, Tenderoni, due for release on 14th June. It’s … pretty dancey. Almost reminiscent of the electro-heavy summer of 2007. This might bother you if you’re expecting something a little more Bloc Party; let me know what you think.

Meanwhile, support for the Irish dates comes from Simone Ogunbunmi, AKA Mama, an intruigingly sophisticated diva-in-waiting…

… whose presence should be just right for the occasion. In fact, I’m quite gently psyched.

Again, the other Irish dates are Dolan’s Warehouse, Limerick on Friday 14th of May, Cyprus Avenue, Cork on Saturday the 15th, and Spring & Airbrake, Belfast on Monday, 17th.

About the Author

That cranky young wan from award-winning blog, Arse End Of Ireland, Lisa’s also noted for her dedication to cobbling together unrelated imprecations to make new and bemusing insults, mostly because she’s not eloquent enough to otherwise explain her deep-seated terror of genre fiction and Fianna Fail. In 2006, The Irish Times called her “… the most talented writer at work in Ireland today”, and her mam still can’t understand why this is better than being the new Marian Keyes. Which it totally is.
