Dr. Mindflip's Emotional Menagerie

Saturday 18 Aug
Upstairs, Brewery Corner, Kilkenny
Doors 8pm / Show 8.30pm


Come one, come all, to bask in this collection of curiosities! A very special night where you’re invited to bring your wonderful, weird self out to play (costumes *very much* admired, but not required), against a visual background celebrating your unique emotional landscapes, all in aid of local mental health charities.

For the very first time in Kilkenny, Dr. Mindflip shake-up their unique cocktail of avant-garde pop with the hip-swirling sounds of Auxiliary Phoenix Trio’s fusion of jazz and hip-hop. Chased down with potent sets from our special guest DJs, we have the perfect recipe to tickle the most musically curious tastebuds…

YOU are invited to contribute photos, drawings, videos, and words on the theme of ‘my emotional / mental world’ above...

Tickets €12 - in support of local mental health charities. Arrive early - the first 20 will receive a free pint, a quest for the night, and our artists will be available to transform you..

For the first time, AKA is delighted to welcome Dr. Mindflip’s The Improbable End of Owly, an interactive multimedia art installation like no other. Step inside a 1960’s caravan transformed into an 18th century stagecoach with a unique ‘choose your own adventure’ experience inside.

Steer Owly through his last day on earth: your choices will decide his fate. This quirky, fun and immersive audio-visual experience, with lighting and smoke effects can be played by 3-4 at a time, and lasts for 10-15 minutes.

Keep your eyes peeled throughout the festival…Owly’s stagecoach will be appearing at a secret location for a limited time only!
