To celebrate our 5th birthday, we're putting together a special programme between end Sept, right through the month of October, selecting some of our favourite acts who have played with us over the years, and throwing in one or two of our heroes, while always looking forward to bringing fresh quality acts into Cork.

They are quite an influential act and one of our personal faves......

I've seen some fantastic gigs there in the last few years.

I think the Editors one was a standout for me.

Stand out for me was the Maccabees. The Bluetones was the worst, not the band but the turnout.
