SOMA #029 ft. Odd Morris & The Wha

SOMA is back at it this month in Whelans and we have two of Irelands newest and most exciting guitar bands playing live sets.

Odd Morris just dropped their debut single ‘What Might Be’ which quickly got the attention of blogs and Dublin music lovers a like. Odd Morris have delivered a sound that’s dark, ominous, and wildly eneregtic we’re extremely excited to be having them headline SOMA #029 and we can’t wait to see what they bring to the SOMA stage.

The Wha have emerged as one of the youngest and brightest additions to the Irish guitar scene. They’ve managed to obtain a sound that is distinctly their own but draws from guitar heroes such as The La’s and Libertines. This is no mean feat and it’s no wonder why they’ve being dubbed as one of Ireland’s most exciting new prospects.

Doors at 11pm

As per usual we’ll have the SOMA Resident DJs spinning your favorite indie (&hip-hop) tunes until 3am!

SOMA originated as a series of house parties in Dublin hosting bands and DJs until stupid o’clock. The SOMA clubnight aims to carry on the house party tradition, showcasing Dublins best up and coming bands followed by a sweaty party soundtracked by all your favourite indie and alternative bangers.

SOMA PLAYS:
FIDLAR, The Dandy Warhols, Arctic Monkeys, Parquet Courts, The Virgins, QOTSA, Blur, Bloc Party, The Strokes, Sleater-Kinney, Brian Jonestown Massacare, The Hives, Wavves,The Vines, Bikini Kill, The White Stripes, The Kills, Nirvana, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Foals, Interpol, Death From Above 1979, The Libertines, Smashing Pumpkins, Green Day, The Stone Roses, Justice, The Orwells, Tame Impala, The Last Shadow Puppets, Kings of Leon, Phoenix, Editors, Glass Animals, The Vaccines, Warpaint, Circa Waves, Wild Beasts, etc. etc.
