GOTW: Gascan Ruckus @ The INF, Warrenpoint
Bonus points if it's outside Belfast, that's our policy when it comes to gigs. Apart from the fact road trips are FUN, we generally find that shows in smaller towns mean hungrier, more enthusiastic crowds. So here's to our GOTW, which this week takes place in sunny seaside town Warrenpoint, with noisy upstarts Gascan Ruckus headlining the INF on Friday night.
'We're going to be playing loads of new songs at these shows. We've spent some time writing and in the studio so this will be a good chance to hear some fresh material from us' explains Michael from GR.
'Also, a big reason we're playing these shows is because our buddies 'Kill Goliath' are over from London for a wee while. They're great guys and a great band so it would be great if you could give them a mention.'
It's our pleasure, Michael!
'We've spent most of the Winter in hibernation. Will be good to go out and kick the dust off our boots and play live again!'
So there you go, the band responsible for 'Vitamins', one of the most played tracks on ATL in 2012 so far. Also on the bill - Kill Goliath and The Hype! Friday night, the INF, y'all. Go for the sticks of rock, stay for the...em, rock.
(While it goes against the spirit of this recommendation, I suppose we should point out that Gascan Ruckus and Kill Goliath also play The Menagerie, Belfast tomorrow (Thursday) with Strait Laces)
