HWCH09

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

Sunday, 18th October

22:50 – 21:20 – Fiona Melady– Button Factory
21:30 – 22:00: The Brad Pitt Light Orchestra – The Button Factory
22:10 – 22:40: SOUNDS OF SYSTEM BREAKDOWN – Twisted Pepper
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.

Hard Working Class Heroes 09 – MySpace Reviews Coming!!

Posted in General Tickets There Blog, Music, News with tags , , , on October 9, 2009 by Tickets There

Tickets There is getting ready to return to some Irish music folks. After the Megadeth and KISS bonanzas, we feel it’s time to get back to our roots and bring you some of the best….and a lot of the worst music Ireland has to offer.

Our plan is simple. Rather than searching for bands on MySpace to review, we’re going to do a review of every single band playing the Hard Working Class Heroes Festival this year (excluding the ones we’ve already done).

We were hoping to start ages ago but ya know, KISS!. So we’ll be starting tonight and we’ll bring you a minimum of one MySpace review a day. Forget all that nonsense of starting to be nicer, if the bands are shit, we’ll fucking say it (and yes, the list will be returning Shaun J)

So stay tuned later tonight for the first of many, many new MySpace Reviews!!

All the best,
Tickets There
