Giveaway week: Port O’ Brien

We trust you had a good Bank Holiday? Forget that now young ones as we’ve got a week of quality ticket giveaways starting with tonight’s gig from Oakland’s nautical heroes Port O’ Brien.

A few months back we described their single ‘All We Could Sing’ as “a jangly guitar tune driven by a chorus of voices” and since then their album has seeped into our collective brains. JJ described All We Could Do Was Sing in a previous album review as a release which displayed “country and indie roots… but North American folk is the over-riding influence, and for every bit of raw guitar there’s three of four genuinely tender moments’.

State have two pairs of tickets to giveaway to their show in Crawdaddy TONIGHT. All you have to do is send a mail to giveaway@state.ie with your full name. If you don’t hear from us by 5pm, you didn’t win.
