Le Galaxie & BARQ will perform songs from Apocalypse Now and Pulp Fiction around the country


The Smithwick’s Soundtrack Series is a series of live gigs across Ireland featuring two of Ireland’s best bands, Le Galaxie and BARQ, performing the songs and score of their respective favourite soundtracks.

Le Galaxie have reimagined songs and the score from Francis Ford Coppolla’s classic war movie Apocalypse Now including The Doors’ ‘The End’, ‘Ride of the Valkyries’ and new pieces for existing scenes like Saigon and Kurtz Compound.

BARQ have reinterpreted the classic soundtrack from Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction including Misirlou, ‘Son Of A Preacher Man’, ‘Jungle Boogie’ and ‘Girl, You’ll Be A Woman Soon’.

Each date is €15 entry via with a free pint of Smithwick’s at the bar and I’ll be DJing after BARQ’s gigs while Sally Cinnamon is DJing with Le Galaxie.
