The Lycan Sessions: December line-up revealed

Posted in Gig Listing, Music, News with tags , , , , , on November 18, 2014 by Tickets There

10435119_486880081450813_9020818907833401104_nThe Lycan sessions are coming back next month with two more exciting bands you need to catch. For those not in the know, The Lycan is Whelan’s newest night – dedicated to brining you some of the best live talent from around the county. Oh, and did we mention it’s all 100% HEAVY F**KING METAL? Hell yes!

The second sessions will feature the excellent Zhora and Alpheidae. Both bands will take the stage some time after midnight and play on till the wee small tiny hours that most of us hazily remember through a fog of shots and spirits. It’s free in if you get your name down on their Facebook wall now…or it might just be free in anyway. Whelan’s are merciful promoters, but do not cross them!

December 4th, Whelan’s – be there and support your local metal scene. Kisses x
