Upstairs@Whelan’s from Midnight.

Doors: 11:30pm is proud to bring you The Midnight Hour. Showcasing the best new talent in Ireland.

Private Underground Residence are Paul McNamara, Kevin Blake and John Machale. Exploding onto the Cork scene in early 2007, Private Underground Residence left bits and pieces of their music all over peoples suspecting and increasingly avalanched ear drums.

PUR embrace everything from various genres, and get compared to sounding similar to such groups as Battles, Fugazi, Slint, The Melvins and The Oxes. Refusing to put their music in a hole with pigeons, the band instead allow all it to run all over the place, picking up the strangled vibrations of genre upon genre as it moves along. A critically acclaimed free single called snuffbox was released for free download on bandcamp, which is from their soon to be released debut album, ‘Dynamics of Idealism’.

The single can be streamed and downloaded from here:


FREE before 10:30pm, Club entry applies after 10:30pm (Thur/Fri/Sat)
