The Spook of the Thirteenth Lock will perform their new record, Lockout, as part of the St Patrick’s Day celebrations in a special concert that will take place at The Pepper Canister Church.

Lockout is a work that is epic in scope, with the band swelling their ranks to include an electric guitar orchestra and displaying the influence of composers like Glenn Branca and Rhys Chatham.

Lyrically, Lockout tells the story of the 1913 Lockout when Jim Larkin led the Irish Transport and General Workers Union in protest at their exploitative working conditions.

Musically, The Spook of the Thirteenth Lock weave melodies drawn from traditional music into larger compositions that are added extra bombast by the dramatic swells and stabs of the massed ranks of guitars.

Lockout is a work that has been finessed for years since its initial performances. This concert as part of the St Patrick’s Festival promises to be extra special, with all-female vocal harmony group Landless adding an extra ingredient to the night's proceedings.
