“London has The Horrors, and here's Dublin's revenge: psyched-out zombie rocker complete with all the horrorshow ingredients: the devilishly swirling Farfisa organ, the bendy guitar twangs, the singer who howls like a teenage werewolf at a beach party.”
— KEVIN COURTNEY, The Irish Times

    http://www.facebook.com/events/194382397344196/ Following a lovely lie-in, surrounded by the remnants of the chocolate eggs that you ripped open when you fell in from The Workman’s Club at 4am this morning, resurrect yourself for our Easter Sunday Live All Dayer. The Workman's Bank Holiday All Day jaunts are some of our best loved nights at the venue. Sunday April 8th, Easter Sunday, the first live all dayer of 2012 will take place and it promises to be a blistering one! The day-long celebration of live music will be headlined by The Urges, who launch their new single ‘Fire Burning’ the same evening. The line up brings together some of the most exciting new emerging acts from our fair city: September Girls, Girl Band, New Town Disaster, Late City Edition and Princess. Only six months since getting together, Girl Band have already been chosen to perform a much coveted slot at this year's Camden Crawl, and the much anticipated September Girls are formed from the ashes of The Chalets, Tallulah Does the Hula and Neosupervital. Easter Sunday Live All Dayer kicks off at 5pm (first act 7pm sharp) and, get this, ADMISSION IS ABSOLUTELY FREE! And don’t forget, it’s a bank holiday, so upstairs its MASS with Sister Lisa Marie and The Workman's Indie Residents spinning the tunes ‘til 3am, just so you can keep the party going ..... -THE URGES -SEPTEMBER GIRLS -GIRL BAND -NEW TOWN DISASTER -LATE CITY EDITION -PRINCESS DJ'S TREV RADIATOR+SISTER LISA MARIE FIRST ACT 7PM SHARP
