Following a gig last week in Dublin’s Mercantile, Kilkenny group Audio Fires return to the city this weekend.

Billy Byrne’s hosts the home gig on Friday night. The band boasts the well known local talent of Paul Hindle, Sam Moylan, Daire Nolan and Padraig King. Their unique indie rock sound has seen them tie in a large fan base which continues to grow.

With them on the bill is another act with local connections. The Scenes formed last year tying together talents from across the south-east.

Founded by Wexfordian guitarist Liam Redmond and Kilkenny bass player Eamon McEvoy the latter’s fellow county man Sean Watmore has joined as lead singer.

The three-piece began recording at Jam Studios with Martin Quinn and their line-up was completed when lead guitarist Mick Kelly from Carlow and drummer Alan Farrell from Wicklow.

Their single ‘She Said’ is billed as a “cracking crowd pleaser that gets the crowd jumping to its high energy and summery sound”.

It’s one of the first tracks recorded for their album which is due out this Summer. But first catch them live at Billy Byrne’s with Audio Fires this Friday.
