Following some highly regarded sets at Other Voices, Hard Working Class Heroes and 2 nationwide tours in 2018 – Just Mustard will be touring extensively throughout Ireland, UK & Europe in 2019.

“Their debut album ‘Wednesday’ is a two-toned masterpiece, flipping from hypnotic, smoky vocals to screeching industrial noise on the fly.”

PILLOW QUEENS

The BarN - 12.15am

Having first come together in the autumn of 2016 on the basketball courts of a Dublin city park, the four members of Pillow Queens, soon realised that making music together would be an equally productive group activity. Cathy plays guitar and sings. Rachel plays drums and sings. Pam and Sarah swap guitar , bass and lead vocal duties. Within a few months they’d released their debut EP, Calm Girls, titled in an ironic nod to the bands anxious nature. The three songs dealt with themes of despair, crisis of self and distrust. The closing Wonderboys “an attempt to put into musical form the feeling you get when your eyes roll back into your head when faced with toxic masculinity.” The songs quickly found their way into the hearts of new fans in the local underground DIY scene, and even onto BBC 6music playlists, with Steve Lamacq calling them “deceptively infectious, with sharp hooks and sharp nails” . By the summer of 2017, the band were touring the UK and performing on festival stages.

BICURIOUS

The BarN - 11.15pm

Formed in September 2016 and débuting with a very successful headline gig in the Workman’s Club in February 2017, Bicurious have now played gigs all over Ireland and France, with plans to tour even more in 2018, at home and abroad.

Renowned for their crazy live shows which feature mosh pits, head-banging, riff sing-a-longs, and sometimes even vegan cake, they have rapidly built a loyal fanbase in Dublin and Ireland as a whole.

Their fans have shown their loyalty by funding most of the band’s début EP through crowd-funding and a packed-out fundraiser gig in Sin É, Dublin.

Recording guitar loops live, they build huge soundscapes; ranging from math-rock inspired riffs to jazzy chord progressions.

While Bicurious’ songs can often feature samples of political speakers, which aim to highlight injustices and crises in Ireland, occasional appearances from guests such as Samuel L. Jackson and Donald Trump are not unheard of either. All of this is facilitated by Gavin’s drum sample pad; the unofficial third member of the band.

They released their debut single Sugar Beats on the 6th of April 2017, followed by T.O.I on the 21st of July, 2017. Their début EP was released on the 9th of March 2018, produced by Tom Peters of Alpha Male Tea Party. The band celebrated the release with a sold out show in Whelan's, Dublin.

After almost a year of touring “I’m So Confused” in Ireland, France and the UK, they just recorded some new music in December with Tom Peters which will be released in 2019.
