The Specials Aftershows
To mark this very Specials day for the town, we have laid on a series of aftershow gigs and DJ sets in bars around the town centre – all for FREE.
Donegan’s, High Street // 10.15pm
Tony Villiers, and his badass band of musical mischief-makers, The Villains, bring a refreshing take on classic blues and folk rock. Tony’s soulful voice and intelligent lyrics have brought the band critical acclaim, bringing a strong local fan base. If you like Dylan, The Band, Little Feat or The Felice Brothers then you will love this.
Wolsey’s, High Street // 10.15pm
Bangor’s Gnarkats blend heavy rock riffs, fuzzed out guitars and catchy choruses. Comprising Jordan Evans, Stuart Robinson and Louis Nelson, they cite Fidlar, Saint Vincent and ASIWYFA as their influences. Their two single releases to date have drawn great press reviews and regular radio play on BBC6 music and Radio Ulster’s ATL.
Rabbit Rooms (Upstairs in the Hutch) // – 10pm
Stir It Up! vinyl DJ sets from Craig Walker and Gareth McKinnie – classic reggae, ska, punk, mod, new wave and northern soul.
Hop House // 9pm
Electronic DJ set from Body Fusion label boss Bobby Analog. Crilli Drum & Bass + Friends upstairs.
