State vs Club AU #2 – The Rags, Escape Act, John Shelly & The Creatures

Hot on the heels of last week’s memorable Villagers, ASIWYFA and Alphastates triple bill comes the second State & Club AU collaboration, this time featuring two names from the AU part of the world alongside one of Dublin’s finest. The Rags have been operating below the radar of late, readying their debut album for a release this summer. We’ve heard it and, believe us, it’s worth the wait. Belfast’s Escape Act, meanwhile, have been winning friends all over the shop with their absorbingly upbeat pop-rock and creative promotional tactics. The two bands are joined by John Shelly & The Creatures, one of the most exciting new names on a Northern scene already bursting with talent.

It all takes place at the Purty Loft in Dun Laoghaire (right next to Monkstown DART station) and kicks off at 9pm, with State DJs spinning the tunes . Tickets are a mere €5 but we have five pairs to giveaway right here. Just email your name to by 6pm on Thursday.
