Codes, And So I Watch You From Afar, Dark Room Notes and Le Galaxie are set to play First Fortnight on January 15th to help to raise awareness about mental health issues and the prejudices that surround them. First Fortnight is an annual event held in mid-January, which brings together some of Ireland’s best musical talent with discussion and debate. This year First Fortnight have teamed up with Amnesty International and will donate all proceeds from the show to their mental health campaign “Challenging Prejudice and Discrimination in Mental Health”. All the bands are performing free of charge, and their sets will be preceded by a lively discussion about the attitudes and behaviours towards people with mental health problems in Ireland today. The afternoon discussion is free of charge and will start at 1pm.
