ED2012 Music Review: Absolutely Free Live Music (Whistlebinkies)
Delve deep into the cavernous depths of Whistlebinkies for a lovely evening of high-energy folky/rock/ska/punk/indie and all-round great performances. Whistlebinkies arranges plenty of fun every night of the week, accumulating a plethora of somehow undiscovered local musicians to ‘’rock the house’’. My first night at Whistlebinkies showcased an impeccably energetic and talented band, The International Pop Assassins, performing some of their own classic ska alongside soft punk and rock hits from the 80s and 90s, including a pumped-up version of Echo and the Bunnymen’s ‘The Killing Moon’. A perfect musical environment for all ages to cut loose as variety of genre, cheap drinks and killer acoustics will keep you dancing all night.
Whistlebinkies, 2 Aug-2 Sept, 9.00pm.
