State vs… Popical Island

The State vs…. live music series is back next week (13th August) for another night of gig action at the Mercantile on Dame Street in Dublin. This time we’re teaming up with what is shaping up to be the Irish independent label of the year, Popical Island. Having released their debut compilation earlier in the summer (review here), the collective has found itself the toast of the Irish media.

Seeing as our guests are so damn good we’re giving them two bands, one man trail blazer So Cow (pictured) and the glorious sunny pop of Tieranniesaur. State’s contribution comes in the form of our Introducing…. band for the evening, the “kings of the hard-rockin testicular riff” Biggus Diccus (free download of their album).

As ever it all kicks off at 9pm, is absolutely free in and rounds off with Popical and State Social DJs on the decks. Join the event on Facebook here.
