Mullingar, Longfords and Leeds leading legendary pop rock outfit, The Aftermath are coming to Dublin tomorrow night.

For a measly €12 on the door of The Academy 2, you can experience some of the finest sing along guitar pop classics that this country’s produced since The Stunning. Their 2008 debut album, Friendlier Up Here was chock full of irresistibility catchy, fun anthems and with the lads currently recording their second record, you might get a chance to get a sneak peak at their new material.

Honestly, The Aftermath are a fantastic group and as Friday nights in town go, you’re not going to beat these guys for sher full on entertainment and excellent musicianship. With songs like Are You Not Wanting Me Yet, One if Fun, Hollywood Remake, All I Want Is For You To Be Happy, Northern Lingerie and Joyful Mystery there’ll be no shortage of enjoyment.
