The Bangles – Vicar Street, Dublin

The L.A.-based quartet with their inventive incorporation of ’60s folk rock, sunny SoCal harmonies and Beatles/Byrds/Beach Boys/Big Star godhead into a sound all its own – beguiling, frequently bittersweet, but always life-affirming; a canny merger of art and commerce. Theirs was a rags-to-riches story, from the band’s beginnings in L.A.’s Paisley Underground scene through their reign as the smart-pop princesses of the 1980s – a problematic decade that was far richer for the Bangles’ presence in its unfolding.

The Bangles live @ Vicar St. October 9th. Tickets are €35 on sale Monday August 9th @ 9am through Ticketmaster and other usual outlets nationwide. Booking Line: 0818 719 390.
