Indie Week Ireland: Day 2

0 66

Day two of Indie Week Ireland brought back some of the same bands we saw yesterday, but now with new, improved taste of judging added in to the mix!

The Mezz started off the night with Alex The Great, Sarah Packiam, Animal Beats, and Rooftop Anthem. The pressure was on, the stakes were high, the Jameson was flowing and the competition was on!

These guys stopped at nothing and pulled out all the stops – slide guitar & all!

And the winner (from tonight at The Mezz) is…………….. Animal Beats!!!!!!!
Limerick’s Animal Beats rocked it and the judges picked them to move on to the finals from tonight’s round of judged sets at The Mezz.

 

Meanwhile, at Sweeney’s Mongrel….

Another round of heart-thumping rock was underway, with the Hellfire Club, Marina Zettl, L.Stadt, Ten Year Lull, Nixon, The Vickers, and just in case that wasn’t enough, Nixon came back to close out the night with a DJ Set to bring us into the wee hours of the morning! Phew. What a night.

And the winner (from tonight at Sweeney’s Mongrel) is….. L.Stadt!!!!!
Congrats to Poland’s L.Stadt, as the judges picked them from the impressive lineup tonight at Sweeney’s to move on the finals of Indie Week Ireland!

So two days down, two bands picked to head to the finals – rock on!
