An Alternative Evening of Light Entertainment on Valentines Eve


with Restive Nation and Witchkicker

Dublin based Lugosi formed in 2016 consisting of JM Burr and Jimmy Rooney (of the band the Reverend JM’s panic worship), film maker and former Hungry Souls guitarist Alan Morton, and Neal Wright, formerly of Belfast’s Memento Mori. Lugosi are a Dublin based alternative rock band, fusing the styles of punk and stoner music with an engaging performance style and lyrics permeated by a singular humour.

With influences ranging from Misfits, Black Sabbath, Fu Manchu and Clutch, coupled with a love of the macabre, Lugosi’s original songs range in subject matter from alien vampires, American Indian legends, horror and witchcraft. A sonic Ed Wood movie, delivered through the medium of rock ‘n’ roll.

Restive Nation are a three-piece electronic rock band from Dublin. Their unique blend of organic and synthetic sounds makes for an extremely textured listening experience. Their style reaches from many influences of industrial, trip hop and electronic genres. Although many of their current works are instrumental, various singers join the line-up for certain songs.

Chris is in charge of synths and production. His background in electronic dance music and sound design helps provide the band with some intense and atmospheric noises. Timmy is on bass. Having been around on the Irish music scene as a past member of diverse bands such as Lotus Eater and Rhiannon and the Face Collectors, he brings the various styles he has cultivated from such groups to add some unique low end to the Restive Nation sound. Kevin on drums, has played with several bands on the Irish scene including Lace Weeper, Franko Franko and 21 Outs with a keen interest in several styles such as indie, electro, prog rock, jazz and ambient.

Witchkicker are an all-female metal quartet based in Dublin. Inspired by the likes of Deftones, Rush, Gojira and Kings X… and ABBA.
