DIY DUB-punk and ska from the north of England, and a one man acoustic comedic whirlwind, will be in the upstairs bar of the Róisín Dubh, next week.
Autonomads, are the DIY Dub-punk/ska band. Formed in a basement, Manchester in 2007, Autonomads have since played more than 500 gigs across 12 countries, including in fields, on sites, at demos, on trucks, in clubs, in houses and meadows, free parties, warehouses, pubs. Heavily influenced by 1990s reggae, folk, and punk, expect plenty of anarchism, "ideological ranting" and calls for "absolute freedom to earth, beast, and mind".
Captain Hotknives is the solo whirlwind who is unhindered by concepts such as "being able to sing", or "making words which rhyme", and whose songs cover subjects like begging, solvent abuse, and pigeon hypnosis.
The show takes place on Monday May 14 at 8pm and admission is €5.
