The Motif Calendar

When looking at the month of July I thought it was going to be a quieter month, but it turns out I was wrong. The mayhem continues on.

Here at Slight Motif we have been loving all the events that have been happening recently. Over the past week our team have attended the Jameson Connects series at The Sound House where we've seen performances from some of the notable artists in the Irish Music Scene. We also let our hair down over the weekend at Kamil Events' Red Cup and later that night continued the party at R3d's House.
