State vs AU #2 – the report

It was another case of State meets AU by the sea on Friday with the second of our ongoing series of gig collaborations at the Purty Loft in Monkstown. This time round the emphasis was on the AU camp, with Escape Act and John Shelly & The Creatures both making the trip down the M1 and through the tunnel, to join a bill topped off by Dubliners The Rags.

Escape Act made their debut as a four piece and also threw a clutch of new tunes into the set, John Shelly & The Creatures were a revelation and The Rags proved that their absence has failed to dampen their fiery attitude.

The State / AU Presents… nights return at the beginning of June. Keep it here for more details….
