Kojaque is playing Whelan's at the end of the month and we're so there

Happy Friday!

To celebrate the 1 year anniversary of his hugely successful album Deli Daydreams, Dublin rapper Kojaque will give a special performance in Whelan's on February 23.

Kojaque (AKA Kevin Smith) will perform the Choice Music Prize nominated album live with a full band at an intimate gig and it looks set to be unmissable.

Dublin Feb 23rd - Hold the date... ?

His debut album is:

"A conceptual project chronicling a week in the life of a Deli worker. The project meanders through the daydreams of Kojaque, the main protagonist, as he contemplates love, life and loneliness in the lead up to the annual work Christmas party. The project is a vignette of working life in Dublin, mundanity, madness and escapism."

The gritty, intelligent and compelling style of the Dublin artist's music has seen his popularity soar over the last year and his live shows have rave reviews from fans and notable people in the music industry, such as Nialler 9.

As an established film-maker and visual artist as well as a musician, Kojaque’s multi-media performances are unlike anything else in Irish hip-hop. It is honesty that consolidates his thoughtful, intelligent, cohesively human tracks.

Tickets for the Whelan's gig start at €21 and go on sale Monday, February 11 at 9am. We're guessing they're going to sell out really quickly though, so act fast!
