Tom Speight :: Thursday 18th April 
Doors 7.30pm Tickets €12  
Tom Speight is making up for lost time. Laid low by illness, beset by problems both personal and professional, the songwriter returned to what he does best: writing songs. Using his convalescence as a musical break, Tom found that music simply tumbled forth, a torrent of ideas, a flood of melody. “I wanted to do it,” he says. “I came out of a big relationship – four or five years – and then I was pretty low. I’d just come out of two major operations, so it was a good, cathartic way of getting on with things.” “You have to live life, don’t you? Get your heart broken, meet someone and start something new. Experience things.”.

Doors 7.30pm Tickets €22.50  
The Wedding Present have had eighteen UK Top 40 hit singles… not bad for a band that has, from its inception, stubbornly refused to play the record industry’s game.

In this fashion, the debut single GO OUT AND GET 'EM BOY! was collected from the pressing plant, delivered to the distribution company, and The Wedding Present was born. That pioneering spirit has been at the core of the band's philosophy ever since. From GEORGE BEST, "an unmitigated delight" [NME], the first full-length release on their own Reception Records onwards, the band has charted an appealing, if often eccentric, course of its very own..

Speaking about the single, LYRA explains: “’Falling’ is about something I think most of us girls have experienced in life. You know these guys who want to have their cake and eat it? It’s about one of them! Falling for a guy, who it seems to be going swimmingly with only to find out he’s been seeing other girls on the side… I was quite naive and thought I could win him over and that once I’d done that - we’d be onto something great together. How fecking wrong was I?! I started writing this song at home in my PJ’s when I’d given up crying and decided I wanted to do something that had a bit of a sexy feel to it, something that made me feel empowered in this shit situation I’d found myself in. I ended up going through quite a lot with this guy…I have a lot to say about it - he better watch out!” .

Alabama 3 Acoustic :: Wednesday 29th May 
Doors 8pm Tickets €22.50  
Heeding Woodie Guthrie's maxim, Alabama 3 have never feared the reduction of their technology. Consequently, Alabama 3 acoustic is brave enough to go out on the road armed only with a battered acoustic guitar and harmonica, preaching Guthrie's word that 'this machine kills fascists.' In homage to the classic delta blues slide players like Mississippi Fred McDowell, Howling Wolf, John Lee Hooker and their own Rockfree Base (though not in that pantheon of greats), we present our own narco-acoustic slant on Alabama 3 and the music that has inspired us along the way. Complete with Larry Love's gravelly ash-stained vocals, Nick Reynolds bank robber melodies on harmonica, they provide a raucous show, which is in no way constrained by the boring maxim that often goes with acoustic gigs! An unrivaled Marxist machine gun, Alabama 3 Acoustic are on a mission to get you mashed. .
