It’s October, Halloween is close and the Hard Working Class Heroes Festival returns to the streets of Dublin. For a mere forty odd Euro, you’ll have access to 100 bands in six of Dublin’s finest venues over the next three days (or you can buy much cheaper tickets if you can only handle one day of the festivities). There’s also street exhibits, art and photography exhibitions and loads, loads more joy n craic going on. The atmosphere should be great craic around the town. As for the bands themselves? Well, let’s see what Tickets There recommends.
Please keep in mind that Tickets There’s talent doesn’t affords us the luxury of spending all day listening to music so I won’t be recommending zillions of bands, just the handful of extremely talented ones I’ve had the good fortune to find.
Friday, 16th October
20:40 – 21:10: The Brothers Movement – The Button factory
22:45 – 23:10 – Talulah Does the Hula (meant to be good)
23:30 – 00:00 – Neosupervital – Twisted Pepper
Saturday, 17th October
19:10 – 19:40: Ollie Cole – The Button Factory
20:15 – 20:45: Kill Krinkle Club (Go and see for yourself just how obnoxiously shite this band are. Very, very funny to watch their fans get into it. You can play nasty, snide little games and pass remarks. Always good fun)
20:55 – 21:25: C!ties – Twisted Pepper
22:30 – 23:00: Sweet Jane – Andrews’s lane
23:15 – 00:00: Adebisi Shank – Andrews Lane

22:55 – 23:30 – Ham Sandwich – The Button Factory
Believe it or not, that’s it. And two of the bands should even really be there. I’m afraid very few of Tickets There’s choices for this country’s leading acts will be on show. Anyways people, relax, check out the official HWCH festival page for more details and the full schedule.
