We’re not much into fightin’, shmokin’ or indeed drinkin’ but we’ve been enrolled in a musical brawl against the good people over at The Delphi Label. Representing us on the night will be fresh new things The Debutantes from Galway, along with DJ-Sets from The Ambience Affair and Go Panda Go with Hector Castells providing some stunning Catalan visuals. Waiting in the wings will be a set from AdultRock and on the other side Hush War Cry from Cork, Sacred Animals and visual master Feel Good Lost await. It’s part of Independence Month at POD and will take place in Crawdaddy.
