Thursday March 19th
Neon Flea Circus
Doors 9.30pm €6 before 10pm / €8 after.
Drawing inspiration from a plethora of great musicians, (Jethro Tull, Rory Gallagher, Peter Green, Small Faces and Amp Fiddler to name but a few) Neon Flea Circus are a band to guarantee you something different every time. Theirs is a music that doesn't focus on political rhetoric or doom & gloom, preferring instead to poke a little fun back into the ever increasingly serious world of entertainment.
Not content to use, abuse and misuse quirky wordplay, lyrical jokes and lighthearted topsy-turvy, they do so on top of grooves that would make even your cool uncle blush, they'll also happily chat up your younger sister while your mother tells her friends what nice boys they are*
Denouncing the established musical demographic “ young or old, some with preference for ballads or others into loud rock, some who only want to dance, others who take their music seriously, those of you who like variation in their music “ would do well to pencil NFC in for a night out.
From Balls-out Blues to Chunky Funk, NFC* bring their audience through an array of styles. Their live shows tend towards grabbing together pinches of Tango, German-Techno, Yiddish Klesmer, 60's psyche, putting them into a big pot, stirring and singing to it for a while, and then seeing what kind of soup emerges.
The only way to know for sure is to go see them.
Also playing are the ever excellent Subplots
and Indie group Miracle Bell
