You can never mark Super Extra Bonus Party down as a band that leave their audience cold. Such is their energy and visible excitement onstage that it’s difficult not to feel exhausted just watching them. Luckily,the audience in the Roisin Dubh match the band for stamina and join in the party atmosphere.
After a post-rockified version of acoustic track ‘2’ from second album Night Horses, the band launch into Go! Team-alike stomper ‘Super Team Go!’ and from then on its relentless- fist pumping, hand clapping indie-electro is belted out by the band taking in cuts from both albums until the apex: a riotous version of new single ‘Comets’. Followed that with a stage invasion-led version of ‘Eamonn’ and they’re job is done, with a trail of broken glass, feedback and delirious smiles in their wake.
