Hard Working Class Heroes stage times & Nialler9 vs On The Record show!


Hard Working Class Heroes kicks off on Thursday 7th October until Saturday 9th October and features over 100 Irish bands performing in 6 venues as well as mid-day gigs, a photography exhibition, speed-mentoring and panels.

This year, Nialler9 will be going head to head against Jim Carroll On The Record with a ‘versus’ night in The Workman’s Club on Saturday 9th of October. We’ve each picked three bands each and the lineup came out as: We Are Losers, Squarehead, Jennifer Evans & The Ripe Intent, Strait Laces, Trophy Boyfriend and The Cast of Cheers. Should be fun.

Other Vs. nights include Any Other City vs. Richter Collective, the State vs AU Club and Today FM (Paul McLoone) vs 2FM (Jenny Huston). Tickets are €45.00 for the weekend plus fees and nightly Tickets are €20 plus fees.
