It should be a big night this Sunday in The Mercantile on dame street. They’re hosting a night called ‘Our day in history’. The event will be celebrating and commemorating through music one of the most important days in Irish history, the Sunday of the Easter Rising.
Jerry Fish will be playing a free gig in the venue.
He will be accompanied by performances from The Hot Sprockets, Mute Fish, and The Jive Cats. Doors are at 7.30pm. We’d advise you to get there early, as it’s sure to be a popular night.
If you’re not familiar with the performers, here’s some quick descriptions from the event page.
“Indie legend and ringmaster of exceptional renown, Jerry Fish has evolved into a showman extraordinaire, alongside his new five-piece band including drummer Jeremy Hickey of R.S.A.G. they have captured the hearts of audiences all over, with their now legendary live shows ~ a unique live experience that dissolves all
boundaries between performer and audience, not to be missed.”
The place where The Hot Sprockets are at their best is on a stage, performing for an audience. Live, their take-no-prisoners, white hot, bone breaking approach is stirring up lips among men and women of all tastes and flavours. So, sit back and get ready for the ride, as The Hot Sprockets put their own stamp on rock n’ roll. This is more than a band, it’s a force of nature. ROCK IT LIKE A HOT SPROCKET!!
MUTEFISH are culturally diverse six piece band from Ireland, Poland, Lithuania, Portugal and Ukraine. They fuse the musical sounds and cultures of Eastern Europe with traditional Irish influences resulting in an engaging melodic compilation of tracks. Each band member brings their distinct musical backgrounds and tastes giving them their unique sound which makes it difficult to label their style or genre.
One of the best RocknRoll bands going on the circuit. They bring back the swing in their set with the sounds of the 1950’s. Be ready to jive, swirl and twist as these guys take you deep into the decades. They are the resident house band every Sunday night.
