Following on from last months packed out show, we’re back with an evening of face-melting, ear-ringing riffage to close out an amazing summer of music!
Headlining on the night are Belfast shock rockers Sister Ghost, purveyors of grizzly garage punk from the brain of lead singer Shannon O’Neill. Their live show is infectous and raucous, dripping in distortion but always underpinned with a catchy melody. Think Sonic Youth smashed together with The Distillers, recorded straight to a 4 track tape.
“Led by Shannon O’Neill, the outfit is rapidly becoming a must-see on the live circuit, and it’s no surprise given the ferocity and synchronicity with which Sister Ghost take to their instruments.” State Magazine
Support on the night comes from The False and the Fair and Chinese Newspaper.
Dublin based The False and The Fair are difficult to nail down. Their recorded output to date genre hops from psycedelic prog rock to alternative and even acoustic led folk. Their live show stitches this together to make a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts. Chock full of incredibly talented players, expect plenty of improvised sections and suprise transitions.
“There’s a lovely cross-over between late 60’s folk, psychedelia and alternative rock, the former courtesy of Love, the middle from Jefferson Airplane and the latter genre from The Doors. ”
Chinese Newspaper are a 3 piece grunge/garage band from Navan. Fully embracing the DIY mentality has allowed them to be super prolific, self-recording and releasing 2 EPs and a string of singles in the short time they’ve been together. Solid solos and thundering drum lines create an energy thats impossible to ignore.
“Their most recent EP Spotless Mind is also their most accomplished. It’s all very unhinged and raucous but in a clearly very tight and honed manner. It’s got that off the cuff easiness that is actually rather difficult to pull off correctly.” – Overblown
