The Flaws consist of: Paul Finn on Vocals/Guitar, Dane McMahon on Bass/Backing Vocals, Shane Malone, Lead Guitar and drummer Colin Berrill. Nanu Nanu Nanu Nanu is an ALIEN POP duo based in Dublin. Members MARC2 and GLITTERFACE use analogue and modular synths teamed with electronic beats and live drums (RORY DOYLE SUPERFLY) to create a foundation upon which layers of processed and effected vocals can be thrown - the result is the spectacular sound of NANU NANU. The band incorporates a strong visual element to their performances with the help of leading visual artist JANE CASSIDY. The use of mirrors, prisms and LEDs is often put into play to turn the venue into extraterrestrial wonderland. NANU NANU are a band you definitely WANT to see live!

EXHIBITONS (10am – 10pm)
THELASTWORDSHOW – James Merrigan (Ground Floor and First Floor Galleries)
Awarded the Red Stables' Irish Residency Award 2010-2011, artist-cum-art critic James Merrigan, has placed his two personas/professions in the gallery simultaneously. As an artist Merrigan is a Dr. Jekyll of sorts, having a similar ambition to bring forth the subliminal ‘IT’ that lies just beneath the civilised collar of society. As an art critic he has been called polemical, but is most inspired by artists who lose themselves in the materials of their art making. The metaphor of Jekyll waking up to the damage ‘they’ inflicted on the public the night before is his best way of describing the aftermaths of both art making and art criticism. THELASTWORDSHOW presents this fugue state of artist and art critic as text light-boxes, video, sculpture, sound. Merrigan’s art practice is left wide open to oohs and aarghs with his blatant use of art world generalities, clichés and reductive puns – along with a few uncanny moments that somehow snaked their way in when the critic was sound asleep (or awake?) – the artist doesn't remember.
Cut Throat – Rachel Tynan Cut Throat crosses the divide between art and medical science, challenging the conventions of both worlds and prompting conversation about how people live with Myalgic Encephalomyalgia (ME) / Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS). Cut Throat is an attempt to make visual the impact of living with long-term illness, using the analogy of the freedom of the bird as an axis for the investigation of the physical limitations and vulnerability of the human condition. Supported by Dublin City of Science 2012, this exhibition at The LAB pushes Tynan’s work beyond the fixed manifestations of installation with an explorative performance from contemporary dancer, Rachel Ensor, whose opening night performance will be filmed and screened throughout the show. The exhibition will also encourage discourse between the artistic, scientific, and medical community through a series of talks focusing on arts and health practices. About Dublin City of Science 2012 The Dublin City of Science 2012 programme was developed to mark the honour of hosting one of the most prestigious international science events, the Euroscience Open Forum (ESOF) 2012, the largest general science event in Europe, taking place in Dublin in July 2012.
