The Hardchargers LR

The HardChargers – comprising Chris Todd, Richard J Hodgen and and Mark Mahood – play the Alternative Social Club, upstairs in the Stag’s Head , Dame Court, Dublin on Sunday at 3pm.

What kind of music do they play?

“here’s the closest analogy I can think of: it’s what might ensue if Jimi Hendrix met Velvet Underground on Muddy Waters’ front porch and then downed a crate of Jack Daniels whilst jamming for a crowd of insatiable sex-crazed groupies….only crazier!” (Belfast Telegraph)

Barry writes:

Minnie and the Illywhackers are a ukulele swing band centred around the exquisite vocal talents of Angie McLaughlin of The Sick and Indigent Song Club. The band are influenced by early jazz, country & blues and create a speakeasy, supper club feel.”

Sunday afternoon?

In the company of a hot gentleman singer/songwriter?

With our reputation?

Barry writes:

“This Sunday at the Alternative Social Club [upstairs in the Stag’s Head, Dame Court, Dublin]  it’s the turn of former Picture House mainstay Duncan Maitland who will be joined by special guests Dave McGuinness (Lir) and Barry O’Brien (Slumberjet). As always our in-house DJ is Karl Tsigdinos Doors are 4pm and admission is a mere €8.. Sure where would you get the like for less?”

“A cure for the Sunday fear,” Bodger assures us.
