Fontaines DC, the Dublin band who are equal parts poetry and punk, A Joy Division with Lloyd Cole on the mic, are landing at the Legendary Horseshoe Tavern on Friday, Sept 13 2019. The Fontaines DC will drop their debut, Friday Apr 12, same day as the Shoe show tickets go on sale. Yes their first album, first, after lead stories in the major music mags and mentions by the music magic makers, and yes just their debut, ‘Dogrel’, so lot of hype around these kats but these Dubs are up for it I think. It reminds me of NIrvana, over a quarter century ago now but same buzz and I hope enough disaffected youth find a salvation in this rock ‘n roll as many did in the 90s with Cobain & Co and maybe even what some found 50 years ago in those first sneers of MC5 and Iggy. Yip, the pressure is on but they’re Irish, I think they can take it all on and go BIG!
