Give Her Up To The Gods

For this year's Solstice Closing Party in Cork, Come As Soon As You Hear have teamed up with the festival organisers to present Human Sacrifice, an evening of DJs, dancing and virgin bloodshed at Murphy's Midsummer Nights at The Spiegeltent from 10pm this Sunday, June 19th. You're cordially invited to come play your part in the ceremony that will see a pretty young virgin pay the ultimate price as part of a gesture of gratitude to The Gods for a bountiful harvest. Tickets are €10 and available here.

And The Winner Is...

Crushing the competition in the loveliest of ways, the worthy winner of Miss Come As Soon As You Hear 2011 was Lola White.

Come As Soon As You Hear are very excited to announce our involvement in Solstice, a brand new initiative being run as part of the Cork Midsummer Festival this month.

The mini festival, organised by four young arts enthusiasts, will run from the 16th to the 19th of June and will showcase work by over 150 emerging artists in the fiels of music, dance, theatre and visual art descend. Transforming the Old FAS Building in the heart of Cork city into a pop-up venue, Solstice will include over 30 performances and will run from 10am to 10pm each day.

We will be debuting a new show, Spurt, devised by Karl Watson and Dan Colley, as well as helping to liven up the festival's top secret closing party with something we've been working on for a few weeks. Check out the full programme here.

Solstice is an exciting new venture and, if you fancy doing your bit to help with proceedings, you can donate to their current Fund It campaign here.

I Personally Believe

She was lovely and fair as the rose of the summer,
Yet 'twas not her beauty alone that drew me near.
Oh no, 'twas the truth in her eyes ever dawning
That made me love Mary, Miss Come As Soon As You Hear.

We're throwing our last Come As Soon As You Hear party for the foreseeable future but, before we dismantle the clotheslines, we'd like to pass on our crown and sceptre to a beautiful torchbearer. You.

Miss Come As Soon As You Hear 2011 will see Lovely Girls and Lovelorn Boys compete over four rounds, compered by Mr Conor Behan:
