    What's the deal with these guys? I've never seen them but they're playing my local venue on the 17 Feb.

    You should go, mental but quite good I have to say. I saw them in The Roisin Dubh in Galway on new years eve. Id go again if they were in town.

    Been well impressed anytime I've seen them play. Go, you won't regret it.

    Yep saw them at the picnic knowing nothing about them, amazing show, wouldn't normally be into that type of music but blown away by them.

    Yep, go see them. Waterford based band but booking festivals all over Europe this summer.

    Thanks, eveyone's saying that but I'm not really 'getting' it from the videos.  It's a venue in Warrenpoint that only holds about 250 so could be a bit mad.  I'll go out of curiosity if nothing else.

    Ssshhhhh :ermm:


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,314 ✭✭✭BOHtox


    Then you'll love them... not saying nothin'


  • Registered Users Posts: 12,136 ✭✭✭✭MadYaker


    Yeah they are probably best enjoyed in an enhanced state of mind if that's your thing OP. The venue I saw them in Galway was tiny too so don't worry about that.

    I'm getting nothing off that

    Anyone going to these guys over the weekend. Button Factory. I've never seen them. Been listening to them for couple of months now. I’d say it will be great show – for €20.
    I was at Twilight Sad in Button factory on Wednesday. Very small venue. Can’t imagine a band like King Kong Company there – who like to use the stage space for bit of theatrics.

    I've seen them a few times at festivals and am going to see them again in Belfast in November. They're a brilliant festival act but I'm not sure how that will translate into a small venue...

    Well if their festivals are better than last night, it must have been heaven.
    Didn’t expect last night to be that good. Such a buzz. And crowd really up for it.
    Might go again tonight.

    Looking forward to seeing them later. Should be a cracker!
