Athens are joining up with Glassgears to play Whelan’s midnight hour on 9th of Feb and we’re all super excited about it.

Come join us for a some couple of hours of brand new music.

Both bands have gone through recent member lineup changes and we can’t wait for you to hear new music from both of us.

Athens were formed by guitarist Chris Ledwidge when he went looking for a singer to work with on developing and completing a collection of guitar and piano tracks he had been working on. They have since developed their sound to incorporate alternative, post rock, minimalist and indie sounds.

The current lineup came together in late 2016 and they are looking set to release two EPs this year.

Originally formed as an instrumental band, they had all been gigging and recording in other projects around Dublin, but found an undeniable musical chemistry between them that instantly clicked into their own unique style.

Their debut EP, The Right Side, was released in 2014, and they are currently working on a follow up, having recently signed a recording and publishing contract with Los Angeles based label Preston Beverly Group.



Strictly over 18′s, I.D. may be required.
