Gráda play their first Irish date celebrating their new album…tonight!

March 31, 2010

…and we are very excited!

These guys are the real deal – look what The Washington Post had to say about them “Gráda is to Irish music what Arcade Fire is to indie – informal, prodigious and full of spirit”


This is the first Irish gig of their Irish Tour celebrating their new album, Natural Angle, which was recorded in Nashville with Grammy Award winning producer, Tim O’Brien. Gráda live gigs are always electric and we are pushing back all the chairs, clearing space for dancing and getting ready for a party!

There is lots of footage over on their youtube page to get you in the mood for the gig but we particualry liked this piece of super 8 footage they filmed while touring Germany last year.

Also Galway based Dutch singer-songwriter Christof will be joining Gráda onstage.  The Dock HQ is loving his music which you can listen to here

The Chapters

Just because we are getting very excited in The Dock HQ about Saturday’s upcoming gig with The Chapters (and because we love this video and love the song!) we thought we would share a little youtube goodness with you. The gig kicks off at 8.30pm and don’t forget its one of our club nights with plenty of room for dancing! Aaand support is by Carrick on Shannons very own The Parade. Nice one. See you on the dancefloor 🙂
