We're absolutely devastated to let you know that The Bernard Shaw and Eatyard will close its doors for good in October.

The beloved pub posted to their website as well as their Instagram and Twitter accounts to announce the end of their Bernard Shaw adventure, and we'd be lying if we said we didn't shed a tear.

"At the end of October 2019 we will close the Shaw, Eatyard, all organisational, art and performance spaces and everything else in the building and yards – for good. We've tried really hard over the last few months to renew the lease, stay on longer, or buy the place. A lot of things didn't go our way over the last 12 months either, but it's out of our hands now unfortunately."

They continued; "We'd like to say a huge thank you to everyone who was part of this 13-year adventure. Our landlord, our neighbours & the council were by and large all brilliant and very helpful & supportive.

"The artists, makers, designers, bands, DJs, promoters, hustlers and lunatics who did their thing at the Shaw – we couldn't have done it without you. We have had amazing, loyal customers, many who came, and left, and came back again over those 13 years as life got in the way while we were busy making plans and being busy fools."

They made sure to thank their crew;

"Past and present we have had incredible people work with us. Everything we do is about people…. their ideas, trying things out, making a mess of it, trying again, getting it right, having fun, making memories, and when the party's over, lets plan another party."

Their last paragraph honestly sent us straight to the tissue box;

"Parties weren't meant to last… Dublin is changing, we can all see and feel it but we are going nowhere and we won't go down without a fight. We'll start something else, somewhere else (plans are afoot), and keep fighting the good fight.

"There are so many young creative, clever, smart people in Dublin & Ireland at the moment – there's lots to be optimistic about – but they need the spaces to meet each other, make plans, and make them happen!" they added.

Both the Bernard Shaw and Eatyard will remain open as usual until the end of October; "We'll have more info, lineups, events, wakes, next steps out over the next few days and weeks."

Gypsies on the Autobahn are set to play at The Button Factory, November 15 2019. Tickets €15.00 inclusive of booking fee, available now from Ticketmaster.

The four-piece is comprised of brothers, lead singer James and drummer Dan Smith, guitarist Niall Mooney, and Gary Quinn on bass. After processing their first outing 2017’s Born Brief, a record ten years in the making, it’s evident that they have arrived at a point in their lives where they not only know the music they want to make but also they know themselves more than they ever did before. Freed up from the pressure of introducing where they came from on their debut, Suspended brings with it a more mature sound and central theme of hope born from moments of struggle.

Talking about writing the record, James said he had always previously found it necessary to try to use his lyrics to speak to someone else. However when it came to moving forward he found that familiar process transitioning into one that delivered lyrics he identified as him searching for hope for himself. It’s that intimacy and insular dialogue that delivers Suspended's big emotional punch and creates inevitable internal conversations for the listener because everyone can relate to them on a deeply personal level.

While they admit they write songs in what might be considered a backwards way, music first and lyrics second, it’s easy to see that it is born from an understanding between four young men who have been creating together for over a decade. This understanding allows them to continually bring each other outside of their comfort zones.

A lack of fear in suggesting things that might on the surface level sound unorthodox, ultimately delivers moments of glory that give this sophomore record brand new life. Being so close for so long doesn’t come without conflict, yet even as tensions rose and a battle between their own aggressions and sensitivities reared its head, all it did was create a raw environment where only candour could exist.

Teaming up with producer Ciaran Bradshaw, Suspended glues together seamlessly but is never afraid to go places the previous track hasn’t, providing big guitar moments that meet at a crossroads with the slower piano driven junctures like the record’s heart breaking first single Make You Mine. You can’t help but feel that Gypsies on the Autobahn aren’t just wanted by those who listen to them, they are needed.

Four men unafraid to be vulnerable in a society where that so rarely transpires. A voice for everyday people who carry real tragedy but can’t help but move forward with an infinite hope for the future.

The Coronas’ December shows at the Olympia theatre are one of the most popular music events of the year.

Their legendary gigs have almost become part of the Christmas calendar now.

This year, the San Diego Song singers will be playing the Olympia on December 3 and 4.

This year, The Coronas have something special planned to mark a decade of Olympia shows.

As always, tickets for the two shows are expected to fly out this Friday.
