Ghostpoet @ The Button Factory
When: 24 October 2017 - 7:30 pm
Where: The Button Factory (see map)
How much: €16
Ghostpoet will play The Button Factory later this year in support of his recent single ‘Immigrant Boogie’.
‘Immigrant Boogie’ is the first new material from Ghostpoet since the release of his third and much lauded, Mercury-nominated Shedding Skin album in 2015.
Ghostpoet aka Obaro Ejimiwe explains:
‘It’s a first person account of a difficult journey across borders, partly intended to ask those who have questioned the arrival of refugees in recent times what they would do in the same situation.
The song is written in two halves – the first hopeful for a brighter future, while the second sees hope snatched away by forces beyond the control of the storyteller.
There is an important story to be told there, but I wrote the song in a way that aims to capture a broader human truth: that while we are all working for a better life for ourselves, we have to accept that we are not in control of the outcome.’
