Spook Open Rehearsal

The Spook of the Thirteenth Lock and an electric guitar orchestra will perform the first movement of “Lockout” at an open rehearsal at The Factory, Sunday January 19th from 3.30-4.30pm. Entry is free and all are invited to attend.

“Lockout” is a new large-scale work written to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the 1913 Dublin Lockout. For this project, the band will be augmented with an electric guitar orchestra, bringing the unique sound popularized by composers such as Glenn Branca and Rhys Chatham into the world of contemporary Irish traditional music.

“Lockout” is a grand departure for the band, adding epic volume and scale to the band’s blend of contemporary and traditional sounds and a sharper, more political voice which addresses the timely anniversary of the Lockout, and its relevance today.
