What would be the worst name for a festival, if you really put your mind to it, what could you come up with?
The Hard Working Class Heroes is billed as a showcase for new Irish music, with a 100 bands over 3 days in 7 venues. Tickets are 20 euro for a day pass and 45 fro a weekend. The full schedule is here, but the event that stands out in my mind is in the Workman’s club on Saturday night. Its a pity that it clashes with the Theatre fesitval, but maybe there’s not a huge cross over (ok, its just me!).
THE WORKMAN’S CLUB / OTR VS. NIALLER 9
