Barry Gruff Presents Live: The Statics, The Violet Roadkills and Wayfarer.

20 Nov

Another chance to see the Statics and other musical choices of Mr Barry Gruff, well worth a visit if your in town this Friday night. Details below.

BarryGruff Presents: The Statics, The Violet Roadkills & Wayfarer

After a series of stellar shows in his hometown of Newbridge, music blogger BarryGruff returns to Dublin once again, bringing his taste-making stylings to Arthur’s on Thomas Street, the newest addition to Dublin’s live music scene under the watchful eye of The Mighty Stef.

The show is on Friday November 23rd with double headliners ‘The Statics’ and ‘The Violet Roadkills’, and support from ‘Wayfarer’ in Arthur’s (Upstairs), 28 Thomas Street, Dublin 8. Doors at 8pm and admission is FREE.

The Statics:

Echoing the likes of The La’s, John Power & The Coral, The Statics specialise in upbeat, energetic and heart warming indie-goodness with twangy rhythmic guitars, rich distinctive vocals and sing-a-long choruses, played with energy, refreshing honesty and assured sense of style. This Dublin four-piece are a real hidden gem but hopefully not for too long.

The Violet Roadkills:

Also hailing from Dublin, The Violet Roadkills are a somewhat different prospect. Taking their cue from the likes of Death In Vegas and Holy Fuck, they have a preference for a loud, intense and powerful mix of heavy riffs and driving synths, channelled into a haze of Electronica and Krautrock. Their influences from My Bloody Valentine, Royksopp, Steroelab to Godspeed You Black Emperor run riot throughout their music. These guys don’t mess about, and do what they do very, very well. This is a first Dublin show in sometime and one definitely not to be missed.

Meanwhile support comes from Newbridge duo Wayfarer, whose soft and gentle folk sound is something of beauty, a perfect combo to kick off any night.
