I like the idea for this year's launch of the Hard Working Heroes Festival taking place in a variety of independent record shops who, not only support up and coming musicians but help give them a break in some way or another.
This evening shall see three different performances in three different record shops. Starting at 6.15pm this evening in Freebird Records (The old Secret Book & Records Shop) on Wicklow Street, Biggles Flys Again opens the proceedings. At 6.45pm Dublin based duo The Ambience Affair take on the crowds in Road Records, Fade Street, with the promised treat of free chips to fill your bellies and lastly, at 7.15pm Belfast band And So I watch You From Afar take to the stage in Tower Records on Wicklow Street and this time the food treat is Pizza.
During the launch more details of this years festival shall be announced and musicians can get more details on how to apply to be part of this years line-up as well as aspiring music photographers. For more info check out the HWCH website.
