Confidence Man at Vicar St – Venue Upgraded
SELECTIVE MEMORY PRESENTS
VICAR ST, DUBLIN
ALL ORIGINAL TICKETS VALID FOR THE NEW VENUE
Due to phenomenal demand, Australia’s Confidence Man have moved their show from The Button Factory to Dublin’s Vicar Street. The show’s date, time and ticket price remains the same. Confidence Man will deliver a spectacular live late show on Saturday night 25th April in Vicar St of Dublin, doors 11.30pm. It will be their first ever headline show in Ireland, following superb shows at Beatyard and Body&Soul festivals in the last two years.
Confidence Man have a question for you: “Does it make you feel good?”
Does it make you feel alive? Does it make you feel warm inside? Does it lift you up? Does it put you down?
Does it take you back to a golden age, when we were brave and a new heaven was all around.
Parading within a brand of dance pop that sounds like Donna Summer and Giorgio Moroder gleefully discovering house music via Dee-lite, and building on a run of breakthrough singles, Confidence Man arrived properly with their debut Confident Music for Confident People.
Following a busy summer playing Glastonbury and festival after festival the Australian four-piece (led by Janet Planet and Sugar Bones) are back with that same pointed, simple question & their latest single: ‘Does It Make You Feel Good’?
Propelled by a bouncy beat, a healthy helping of 90’s dance bop influence, and a seductive repeated vocal, the cut pulls ever forwards to an all out disco breakdown.
The tracks from Confidence Mand come with striking music video treatment, some shot in Berlin with long-time visual collaborators Schall and Schnabel. The band have always had a cult-like following, with people dressing like Janet Planet and Sugar Bones at shows, mimicking their every dance move. It was an easy next step to go with their version of religious ecstasy – hypnotisms, alters, rituals, levitation, lazer boobs and some cute animals for good measure.
With the ever greater push towards poptimism and emotional exploration in all areas of music, Confidence Man have no reason to be shy. They know what they’ve got on their hands, after all:
Feelings are in right now and we’ve got some for you. Watch out, ‘cause the dance floor is wet with tears.
Open up, and let us travel the waterslide deep into your heart.
