The Workman’s Club has become a hub of creativity, art and social progress since we first opened our doors in 2010. Run by folks who are passionate about music, we welcome performers of all flavours – and we’ve seen a tonne of incredible performers pass through our doors and take to our stages over the last 9 years. While Ireland’s contribution to art and music across the world has always been phenomenal, there is a new buzz that has been steadily building over the course of the last year or so.
With this buzz of the new, exciting talent that hail from Ireland, we put together our WE ARE Series, in partnership with Roe & Co Irish Whiskey. The WE ARE Series celebrates the multiple, diverse music and art scenes that represent modern Ireland – and that pass through our club every week. We’ve had some OUTSTANDING shows thus far – and Friday, 20 September will be no different.
Curated by the mega-deadly Nialler9, We Are Workman’s is PSYCHED to bring you seriously awesome live music from FOUR brilliant live acts. Get yer dose of culture in on Culture Night!
What could be better than that? Oh, the fact that it’s FREE? Yeah, that’ll do! Four brilliant acts for NO cash. That’s the kind of maths we can get behind.
Hailing from Ireland, SILVERBACKS deliver their own louche take on NYC-indebted rock. A fully fledged five piece, they ply their trade with as much emphasis on the dry humour running through their lyrics as the propulsive, triple guitar-led onslaught in their music. Stereogum describe them as, ‘a contemporary Dublin band but definitely bear DNA from the NYC art-rick of the late ‘70s and early 80s.
They’ll be joined by Dublin four-piece ODD MORRIS. Influenced by Twin Peaks, Radiohead, Beach House, The Strokes, King Krule, these guys blend their melancholic poetry with uplifting melodies to create a stimulating and doleful soundscape. Their set will have you reminiscing about lost love and life’s bemusements.
THE MARY WALLOPERS (featuring the members of the Dundalk hip-hop duo TPM) released their first EP, A Mouthful of The Mary Wallopers. It features five Irish trad, folk stormers with sean-nós moments to boot. Nialler9 has been singing their praises from high, come check ‘em out live to see why!
Finally, check out Dublin indie-punk trio gif! They released their debut tracks ‘Lumière’ and ‘You Said’ earlier this summer. They describe themselves as ‘gnarly, Dublin alt-punk’ and cite the likes of Sleater Kinney, The Smashing Pumpkins and Ramones amongst others as their influences. Check out the video for Lumiere right HERE.
As with all our WE ARE shows, delicious Roe & Co cocktails will be served up to quench yer thirst. Roe & Co Irish Whiskey is a premium Blended Irish Whiskey made from the finest hand-selected stocks of Irish malt and grain whiskies and aged in bourbon casks.
We’ll be revealing more, so keep your eyes on our socials.
