Irish Gig of the Week: Novelist

Words: Eva O’Beirne

Jack Daniel’s and District share an authentic love for music culture and we thought who better to team up with to celebrate the best new gigs. Every week, we’re handpicking the must-attend show in the capital, ranging from underground rappers in dimly lit rooms to rising stars on sold-out tours.

Grime artist, A$AP Rocky-collaborator and Lewisham native Novelist will return to Dublin to play The Racket space in the Bernard Shaw this October.

Hosted by Wind Up, Novelist will be supported by Emby, Bobofunk and Lesko.

The MC and producer has been making moves since his breakthrough in 2015. Following the release of his jungle-inspired collaborative track Times Change with D Double E and Mall Grab, Novelist dropped a new track, Don’t Wake Me at the start of September.

Novelist’s collaborations with UK titans such as Skepta, Tom Misch and Chase and Status have cemented his respect within the industry – and he’s only getting started.

Novelist plays The Racket Saturday 22 October, with tickets starting at 15 euro. Click here for tickets.
