/// BOOM CHILD /// “the spread of guitar-based genres Boom Child can run through is impressive. You will rock out, experience an abrupt jazz breakdown without warning, and get whipped by some disco-funk,” – Remy’s Music Blog “…to sum them up they are crazy, chaotic and fun. Go see them live if you get a chance.” – Outcast Magazine “Boom Child are really really good” – Boom Child are a chaotic rock trio from Dublin. Their music is an irreverent mix of punk, funk, and power pop. They released their debut “The Super Edible EP” in 2016 on the first 100% edible music format. Their theatrical live show features audience participation and a dancing cow named Boomer. The single and video “I WANT TO SHIFT YOUR SISTER” was released February 2018. — — — — —

/// FREAK CONTROL /// Freak Control are a fresh Dublin based dance rock duo consisting of Paulus Maximus on Bass VI / Vocals / Synth Pedals & Dietrich Blitzer on Drums. The sound that this duo creates is unbelievably fat and full and when you listen to the band live, it is bigger and more robust than most four or five piece bands. No fake ass backing tracks or loopers allowed!. Influenced by the likes of the chemical brothers, the prodigy, 70’s Funk & 60’s Psychedelia, Freak Control have their own original style and flavour which they add to the mix as only they can do. The duo have an uncanny knack to knock out incredibly catchy ‘groove-tastic’ tunes that get people dancing & going mental in the best possible way.


FREE ADMISSION BEFORE 10:30PM – GUEST LIST VIA FACEBOOK EVENT Strictly over 18′s, I.D. may be required.
