Take Back The City
Northern Ireland is a great big place, with many little nooks and crannies to explore.
So here at BBC Introducing we've compiled our own little 'Rough Guide' to the musical hotspots of Northern Ireland in a feature we like to call Take Back the City!
Apparently, Dave Mustaine of Megadeth had an awful night here. Push Borders tell us why. They also claim responsibility for rocking so hard that a wall fell down, but that's a claim that's hard to substantiate.
The Hellfire Club explore Ballyclare Rock City, hometown of Andy Cairns from Therapy? as well as the only shop in the world to specialise in musical instruments and sporting goods.
After a little bit of confusion, Two Door Cinema Club take you through the streets and parks of Bangor, calling in at their old school to discuss their alma mater.
Coleraine is not a town known for it's rock and roll history, but the Good Fight set the record straight, telling us of the time they once thought they'd killed a cow with the power of rock…but thankfully didn't.
Explore the long, straight streets of Cookstown with Ellipsus as they share the secrets of how to gravitate to the big league in the local scene.
When they're not conquering the entire world with the help of AC/DC, The Answer are singing the praises of their hometown. James Heatley tells us about going to school with Ash, and what it's like to hit the big time.
Singer-songwriter John D'Arcy manages to squeeze as many fun facts about Lisburn into the allotted time as humanly possible, as well as giving us the rock and roll history of the city.
Fighting With Wire have always proudly waved the Derry flag, so it made sense to turn to them for our tour of the city. Cahir O'Doherty leaves no stone unturned in his expose of the musical underbelly of the city.
Captain Kennedy are our tour guides through a town with a thriving music scene that has been immortalised in song by the Bonnevilles. We go to these locations, and feel a bit famous.
Mid-Ulster is a fertile breeding ground for musical talent, and We Are Resistance do their best to squeeze it all in, as well as doing their best to squeeze all of the band members into the same van.
Colenso Parade take us on a whistle-stop tour of Omagh, including a suspicious amount of places they refer to as, "The Greenwich Village area of Omagh" or "A hive of cultural activity."
Portadown has more than it's fair share of rock bands, so it made sense for hard rockin' Trucker Diablo to be our guide through the rock and roll heritage of the town.
On a freezing cold evening, And So I Watch You From Afar take us on a tour of Portrush from the relative comfort of their van, stopping off at Kelly's nightclub along the way to discuss the good ol' days.
