Tradiohead will play in the Crane Bar Galway
Tradiohead will play in the Crane Bar (Sea Road) Galway this Friday night, the 24th of August 2012. Doors at 9pm and admission is 5 Euros.
“No surprises? Well, not quite. Tradiohead take the songs of Radiohead and re-imagine them using instruments more often associated with Irish traditional music – Occupy Oxford, if you will. The band made their live debut in March and were then honoured to perform on the closing night of this year’s Galway Sessions Festival. Playing songs from classic albums like The Bends,OK Computer and Kid A, as well as more recent Radiohead records like Hail To The Thief and In Rainbows, Tradiohead play music with a twist. They caught the ear of Galway Bay FM DJ Vinny Browne, who invited Tradiohead to play on his Arts Show in June. Tradiohead come to The Crane Bar ahead of an appearance at this year’s Electric Picnic Festival, where they will be playing in the Body & Soul Area. The band are Jimi McDonnell on vocals, Philip Fogarty on accordion and bodhrán, Pat Hargan on guitar and Michael Chang on violin, viola and mandolin.”
