Coolaboola Events are back with their second installment of 'Indie-vidual', the all-ages afternoon extravanganza, featuring the talents of Fred, Lotus Lullaby and Communal.
Fred are unquestionably one of Corks finest bands. After packing the Operahouse with the launch of their second album 'Making music so you don't have to' ,they sold out the Spiegeltent, played support to Damien Dempsey in the Marquee and will play support to Hal later this month.
Now, after playing at the Hard Working Class Heroes Festival in the Olympia, Fred are back to let the under-agers of Cork experience the conga-lines, piggy-back guitar solos and songs about vegetables that make Fred the most exciting and above all, fun, live acts at the moment. www.fredtheband.com
They've been compared to the likes of Bowie, Muse, Depeche Mode and U2, however, Cork band Lotus Lullaby produce a sound that is original, exciting and new. Having gigged around the country at the likes of the Hard Working Class Hero's festival and the IMRO Showcase, the band's dramatic live shows have received fanatical receptions from audiences and critics alike. Now they're back in their home town to entertain the fine indie-viduals of Cork. www.myspace.com/lotuslullaby
