Tonight sees the debut of MMoths live full band as part of the Static Weekender series of gigs in the Button Factory alongside Young Wonder and Regal Safari (€10 in). He dropped a Fader mix this week featuring snippets of new tracks from his Diaries EP out next year so it’ll be interesting to see how he progresses both tonight and next year.
