HOT BLOODED ANIMALS
Time: 9:30 pm
Hot Blooded Animals are a band of trumped-up Culchies who play the kind of Rock n Roll we can all relate to; the kind that shrouds crippling emotional pain and fear of inadequacy in a haze of boozy over-exaggerated machismo. Featuring the blistering guitar work of Billy Comerfield and the shirtless drumming of Bal Fennstein, this is a unique slice of bogger rock that is not to be missed
Time: 10:00 pm
Upstairs in the Frisky Whiskey at the Oliver Plunkett, ‘The Kilkennys’ will be performing. ‘The Kilkennys’ are a 4-piece traditional Irish ballad group, who have been entertaining audiences all over the country, and internationally for the past ten years, with their unique and accomplished style of playing and vocal talent. Known as one of the hardest working bands in Ireland, they perform the length and breath of the country up to five nights a week. Renowned for their incredible musicianship and vocal abilities, The Kilkennys have gained a reputation for revitalising traditional Irish music and adding their own touch of youth and energy. Over the past 12 years the band have toured all over Ireland and have taken their music as far afield as Las Vegas, Germany, Holland, Switzerland and the Czech Republic.
