About this event

On Wednesday July 28th Aonair will perform one of the first live shows of the year in the Button Factory, Dublin.

Tickets cost €15.00 + booking fee available at Eventbrite.ie (Tickets limited to 85 and must be purchased online)

This is a seated and socially distanced event.

Aonair began life as a dreamy, keyboard-heavy bedroom recording project in 2016 with the Girls Girls Girls EP, and 2018s Surfs Up EP.

Tinged with elements of modern indie, as well as a heavy dose of 80s synth-pop and classic rock nostalgia, this epic new live show will whisk you away on a forgotten 80s dream.

Aonair is the project of songwriter/producer Brendan McGlynn. After writing and touring with bands such as Raglans, THUMPER and Colour//sound he began this solo venture.

Aonair’s sound combines lush electronic production with dreamy reverbs, huge drum sounds and soaring vocal melodies to create a dreamy but powerful sound. Influences include The War On Drugs, Tears for Fears, Julie Cruise and The Blue Nile.

During the COVID pandemic, Aonair began working on a collection of songs between studios in Dublin and his grandparent's house in the picturesque seaside Donegal village of Rathmullen. The results of this are big and bold, synth-drenched upbeat indie-pop tracks with an 80's edge that he can't wait to share at this upcoming live show in the Button Factory!

When talking about the EP and new music...

“I wanted this EP to sound like an old tape you might find in your parent's attic, from a forgotten 80s band.

The initial concept for the EP was to create something flashy, extravagant and glamorous - the antithesis to the post-punk movement. I want to make something deeply uncool, wear my heart on my sleeve and make people want to dance.”

The Button Factory is dedicated to ensuring compliance of all government guidelines during COVID-19 and to ensure the health & safety of all guests, artists and staff.

A COVID compliance officer will be on-site at all times. All staff will wear masks, as well as a one-way system in place for guests entering the venue and for access to the bathrooms.

All tables and surfaces will be wiped down and sterilised before and after each show.

Contact details for each person/group will be taken at the door, for contact tracing purposes and temperature checks will be carried out with each customer upon arrival.

Strictly over 18’s
