Facebook event

On Febuary 14th Hatchlings and NEOMADiC will share the stage in Whelan’s upstairs venue.

Both bands are based in Maynooth and represent two very distinct sides of the town’s growing music scene.
The middle ground for these bands is an ambition to create honest music and mediated lyrics.

Tickets are €7 on the door.

‘They are an honest band who produce honest music. There seems to be contentment, anguish, and many of the vagaries of the everyday. The mood changes in their songs, like our own moods change, often without explanation or reason. Admirably, Hatchlings want to talk about real life and they do it very well.’
– Eamon Doggett, An Interview with Hatchlings, Dogging The Rain

‘Irish hip-hop is the healthiest it’s ever been. Hip-hop duo NEOMADiC are representative of a new Irish generation, kids of multicultural heritage drawing inspiration from their experiences and beyond. Made up of emcees DYRAMiD and noGood, they’re also accompanied by PRiROLL on the decks, producing minimalist jazz cuts to hug the duo’s languid flows.’
– Donna-Claire , NEOMADiC are escapist on their self-titles debut mix,
