Lúnasa Cult and Classic Surf Films Waveriders

The Endless Summer

Dir: Joel Conroy, 75 mins, IRL, 2008/9 Thu. & Fri. 04 & 05 Aug. 8pm. €8/€6 Locally produced Waveriders is the story of the unlikely Irish roots of the worldwide surfing phenomenon that is big-wave surfing, told through the inspirational and ultimately tragic history of Irish/Hawaiian legendary waterman, George Freeth. Waveriders journeys full-circle from Hawaii to California and back to Irish shores.

Dir: Bruce Brown, 95 mins, USA, 1966 Thu. & Fri. 11 & 12 Aug. 8pm. €8/€6 The crown jewel to ten years of Bruce Brown surfing documentaries. Brown follows two young surfers around the world in search of the perfect wave and ends up finding quite a few, in addition to some colorful local characters.

The Thursday screening will be introduced by special guest pro-surfer, Richie Fitzgerald, who features in the film. Narrated by Cillian Murphy Featuring: Richard Fitzgerald, Gabe Davies, Kelly Slater, Kevin Naughton, Chris, Keith & Dan Malloy, John McCarthy, Andy Hill and Easkey Britton

Surfer’s Choice: Surprise Screening Thu. & Fri. 18 & 19 Aug. 8pm. €8/€6 Female pro-surfer and artist Easkey Britton will present a surprise screening of her choice of classic surf films. Come along on Thursday, meet Easkey and join with us as we anticipate her Surfer’s Choice.

Big Wednesday

Richard Fitzgerald at Aileens

“The most unique and visually stunning documentary of its genre… Waveriders explores an unlikely surfing mecca.”

Dir: John Milius, 120 mins,USA, 1978 Thu. & Fri. 25 & 26 Aug. 8pm. €8/€6 Matt Johnson, Jack Barlow, and Leroy Smith are three young California surfers in the 1960s. Ultimately the Vietnam war interrupts their idylic life, leaving them to wonder if they will survive until “Big Wednesday,” the mythical day when the greatest, cleanest, most transcendent wave of all time will come.

Lúnasa Music and Comedy Music Jerry Fish and The Mudbug Club Sat. 06 Aug. 9pm. Tickets: €20 Following Jerry’s massive sell out concert during Sligo Live last year – The Model is delighted to welcome back one of Ireland’s leading troubadours and rabble rousing entertainers. Cross Tom Waits with a circus show band, add a touch of Jacques Brel and Mink de Ville, lather a little Dr. John, Dean Martin and the Fun Loving Criminals and you’re coming close to the sound of the inimitable Jerry Fish and The Mudbug Club. Without question one of the finest live music acts in Ireland today.

Comedy Craic in the Box Joe Rooney & Patrick McDonnell Sat. 13 Aug. 8pm. Tickets: €15/€12 Stand up comedian, voice artist, writer and actor Joe Rooney has many strings to his bow. He is best known for his role as Father Damo in Father Ted and more recently as barfly Timmy from Killinaskully. Joe Rooney has become one of Ireland's most popular “luadars.” His charismatic stand up style is a mixture of hilarious observations on modern Ireland and riproaringly funny musical parodies. Joining him will be Patrick McDonnell, best known as the sickly-sweet Eoin McLove also on Father Ted and his many hilarious characters on ‘Naked Camera’, ‘Stew’ and David McSavage’s hilarious ‘The Savage Eye’ TV show. If you haven’t seen his unique brand of stand-up comedy, you’re missing out.

Túcan

Music Túcan Sat. 20 Aug. 9pm. Tickets: €12 Tucan is an instrumental acoustic guitar based genre splitting band who defy classification. Following the huge success of their “Factory Sessions” videos featuring Daft Punk and Prodigy covers, which took youtube and facebook by storm, Túcan have been working on a new album and entirely new live show, which they will debut as part of The Model’s Lúnasa programme. Join us for this exclusive event which also features a range of special guests.

Music The Gloaming Wed. 24 Aug. 9pm. Tickets: €25 Featuring the virtuoso musical talents of New York pianist Thomas Bartlett, Sean-nós singer Iarla Ó Lionaird, Chicago guitarist Dennis Cahill, fiddler and innovator Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh and the legendary Martin Hayes, The Gloaming is a collective of remarkable individual talents who share a common musical aesthetic.
