A4 Sounds are super excited and extra delighted to present the first of our quarterly fundraiser gigs for 2015, once more returning to the cosy confines of the inimitable Bleecker Street Cafe Bar on Saturday 28th February.
The lineup includes A4 Sounds’ studio member and all-round hyper-talented Cal Folger Day, whose second release, Adornament, is just out on Reeks of Effort records, as well as the rising stars of Dublin’s live scene, the inimitably named grunge / rock / noise outfit Bitch Falcon. Joining them for a special Dublin show are Rivers and Crows, an awesome alternative folk collective hailing from the wild west of Galway. This promises to be an unforgettable night, with an eclectic mix of music and shovel-loads of craic.
We are fast approaching the first anniversary of getting the keys to our new studio headquarters, AND our 6th birthday as an organisation. To celebrate this, we are running a special offer for the month of February; 6 months membership for the price of 5!
