Wizards Of Firetop Mountain / Jimmy Cake show this weekend

We’re constantly amazed by the lack of real Irish rock bands these days, especially given the country’s legacy in that department, so the arrival of Wizards Of Firetop Mountain has been something to celebrate. Playing a blend of 70s classic rock mixed with stoner rock outs and 80s metal, they picked up the Best Irish Music Video in Drop-d Writers’ Awards 2011 for their video ‘Onwards Towards the Sun’, described as “the finest in sheer rock ‘n’ roll this country has to offer”.

The band play Whelan’s this Saturday night, with special guests The Jimmy Cake and Disguise. Tickets are €7.
