Last week I managed to sneak down to Bushmills Live in the City and had an absolute blast. Little Bear, David C Clements and Farriers were all excellent and did themselves proud! This week there is again a lot of local music on offer and some pretty big showcases. I would highly recommend you get down and check out the MSisBS event as all money raised goes directly to charity plus the line-up is beast!
MSisBS – Voodoo – Wednesday 19th June 2013
A stunning bill of local music, all for one good cause. ABandCalledBoy, Deadlights, Droids, Stillpoint, Two Glass Eyes and Window Seats come together to raise money for a man called Martin who has multiple sclerosis – you can read more about his story here. A fantastic line-up and a very worthy cause, please come down and show your support!
Entry is £4 on the door and all profits raised go directly to help fund Martin’s treatment!
SONI Presents: Summer Rocks 6 – The Empire – Thursday 20th June 2013
Quite possibly the biggest event SONI will put on this year features Pay*ola celebrate an incredible 15 years of being a rock band. Expect an evening of hard hitting rock as they play material spanning their entire career. Kudos is also due to SONI for the other incredible local acts on the bill; Shake!, Yellow Car No Return and Shades of Jonah.
Tickets are £5 and are only available from the door!
Open House Presents: Little Bear – Black Box – Saturday 22nd June 2013
I caught Little Bear at Bushmills Live in the City last week and was absolutely blown away (review here). They are the hottest act in Northern Ireland right now and the chance to see them in such intimate surroundings shouldn’t be missed. Support from Dublin based Biggles Flys Again.
Tickets are £10 on the door
Special Mention: Joshua Burnside – White’s Tavern – Wednesday 19th June 2013
Experimental folkster Joshua Burnside takes to White’s Tavern this Wednesday to release his latest EP, ‘If You’re Going That Way.’ Support comes from fast rising and intriguing local female artists, Hannah McPhillimy and Alana Henderson.
Tickets are a measly £3 on the door!
