Last year the Freezer Sessions were held in major cities across Ireland with huge numbers of music fans vying to get on the guestlist – and for the upcoming series, the organisers felt it vital to include Sligo on the bill. And so, The Jägermeister Freezer Sessions will hit McGarrigles in Sligo on Friday, 2nd December in what promises to be a night of outstanding entertainment with music.
The acts on the Sligo bill have stormed the Irish music scene of late, amassing an ever-growing and fervent fanbase on their way...
It's been a breakthrough year for Dublin powerhouses LE GALAXIE following the release of their fantastically-titled Laserdisc Nights II full-length debut. Their growing live reputation has seen them go down a storm at this year's Electric Picnic festival. With a penchant for glowsticks, futuristic musings and 80's-flavoured synth action, Le Galaxie have established themselves as one of the country's most unique and exciting acts.
Instrumentalist act TÚCAN started off as just an acoustic guitar duo founded by Donal Gunne and Pearse Feeney who would go on to score a top-30 debut album in 2009 with Aliquot Strings. Since the release of that well-received record, Túcan has taken a risk and added drummer and percussionist Paul Wehrly and bass player Keith Kelly to their ensemble. The band has played loads of festivals in recent years and opened for Regina Spektor in Dublin after she saw them busking in Temple Bar.
Dublin pop group THE GORGEOUS COLOURS has come a long way since winning a Hot Press contest in 2006 to play Castlepalooza. The quintet's brand of effortless folk-pop in their self-titled debut album and subsequent releases has been widely praised and earned them supporting positions with big names like Lisa Hannigan this year along with numerous headliners. 'Chopped Hearts' is the latest single from The Gorgeous Colours and comes hot on the heels of the sunny and radio-friendly 'It's OK To Be Normal.'
Borrowing their name from Canadian post-rockers Godspeed You! Black Emperor's song 'The Dead Flag Blues', pop punk merchants THE DEAD FLAGS have been catching the attention of the music industry of late... Their stellar 2010 debut Gentleman's Club won over critics with their surprisingly controlled take on animal attraction in songs like 'Woman!', 'Cheating On You', and 'Oh My Love! Oh My God!' The band's latest offering is the powerful rock number 'You Got It Wrong'.
