Whelan’s Upstairs


Rowdy Outsider have quickly become one of Ireland’s hottest new rock prospects. Consisting of vocalist Matthew Doyle, Drummer Sean Murtagh and Bassist/Guitarist Conor Whearty, Rowdy Outsider fuse the rock sounds of the early 2000’s with contemporary ideas and productions.

“The Ireland outfit fuses pop, punk and new wave sounds to create music that is nostalgic yet contemporary.”(EarMilk)

Garnering thousands of Spotify streams and national radio play in recent years, the band bring their polished, explosive live show to Whelans Upstairs, Dublin.

Alt-pop three piece find-joy are set to play their first headline show alongside Rowdy Outsider, since forming just over a year ago. The modest beginnings of the group saw Tadhg Kelly and Mark Allidine spending days on end recording music and having an incredible time as a result. Soon a close friendship with Colleen Conlon proved that performing and creating together would make the most sense.

The group have played several shows recently including Golden Plec and John Barker’s TiLT #13 in the Button Factory and supporting Post-Party for their sold out headline show in the Workman’s Cellar.

find-joy have released four singles to date including ‘Best Wishes’ featuring Matt Ó of Tebi Rex which made it into Spotify’s ‘New Music Friday UK’ playlist as well as The Fader’s ‘Songs You Need In Your Life’ among others.

The September 11th show will be the group’s first full band performance featuring unreleased music and a special guest!
