Dublin’s newest indiepopper faction Popical Island hold their first Christmas do on December 17th.
Christmas on Popical Island
Popical Island is having a Christmas revue of some of its bands on December 17th, upstairs in Whelan’s. We offer the discerning pop punter a programme that can’t be beat this side of yuletide:
Land Lovers (wordy jangle-synth pop)
Lie Ins (literate acoustic guitar/drums tour de force)
I ♥ The Monster Hero (one-man pop overload)
Popical Island DJs will then play late into the night
Whelan’s (upstairs), December 17th
Doors: 8.00 PM
Admission: €5 (includes brand new Land Lovers “Yuletide Miscellany” CD!)
About Popical Island
Popical Island is a collective of pop bands from Dublin who have some shared goals and aesthetics. Interesting pop music, a DIY ethos and having fun are what Popical Island is all about. The collective endeavours to operate as independently as possible, working together and interacting with other bands and collectives who have a similar ethos. Popical Island is only a few weeks old but already has a couple of gigs and one release under its belt. There are plans around the corner for more releases and gigs as well as a compilation of Popical Island bands.
