Upstairs @ JRB’s proudly announce the award winning SUPER EXTRA BONUS PARTY with very special guests SHIPS, PHARE & THE COMSTOCKS to play the Kildare music venue Saturday June 16th.
After a lengthy hiatus, the eagerly anticipated return of SUPER EXTRA BONUS PARTY has arrived! Breaking boundaries and expectations, the Newbridge natives burst onto Irelands independent music scene with minimal Hip Hop clashing with spiky indie guitars, electronica and pounding drums culminating in a kaleidoscopic sound of their own. It’s with this eclecticism and unwillingness to be tied to one genre that had so much appeal and yet equally came as a surprise win, when their self-titled debut album took home the prestigious Choice Music Prize accolade in 2007. Comprehensive tours followed, including an invite to play in New York after the release of their sophomore record Night Horses and now, the ground breaking six-piece band are back with latest offering Switzerland released on Kildare based label 045 Recordings, they are set to play a homecoming show joined by some very special guests…
The all Irish line up presented in association with Junefest Newbridge, brings not just one but two award winning acts to the stage Upstairs @ JRB’s.
The 2017 RTE Choice Music Prize was awarded to Dublin based band SHIPS for the critically acclaimed Precession. The album of the year- brought to production aided by a Crowdfunding campaign, Sorca McGrath & Simon Cullen self -released the record in May 2017. The duo fuse guitars with synthesized landscapes, hailed as intelligent music from perspective practitioners. Atmospheric electronica from PHARE & emerging Newbridge band THE COMSTOCKS complete the bill. An exciting line up of original and independent Irish music.
