Tuesday 3rd September - The Protomen

Nashville rockers The Protomen announce headline show at The Grand Social. The Protomen are more than just a concept rock band from Nashville, TN... they are messengers, riding atop an Iron Stallion (read: inside a mildly shitty tour bus) on their way to deliver the most vicious rock 'n' roll fable that the world has ever known. With several planned albums, and a live show that can crumble mountains, the future is in their hands. Their first record, Act I, includes elements of Ennio Morricone, Queen, and Black Sabbath, that culminate in a listening experience unlike anything you've ever heard. If you're afraid of lo-fi sky cracking distortion and epic chaos, you won't survive this album. ct II is a departure from the signature distorted sound of the first record. It focuses on a time before “the world fell under darkness.” It is a brighter and more optimistic look at the world The Protomen have created.

  • read more
  • The album is split into two separate eras (and sounds), and gives the feeling of two distinct albums in one. Act II was co-produced by Alan Shacklock (Meatloaf, The Alarm, Bonnie Tyler, Babe Ruth, Roger Daltry) and The Protomen. The Protomen have spent the last 11 years building a large and fiercely devoted fan base by kicking some major ass, playing some of the largest US festivals, and headlining their own tours across the US and choice parts of Canada and Australia. The Protomen will play the Grand Social on Tuesday September 3 rd with tickets from €16 on sale Friday 14th June from 10am. 18+

Friday 6th September - MEMORIAM

Old school death metallers Memoriam will make their Dublin debut at The Grand Social on Friday 6th September 2019. Special guests Ten Ton Slug & Zealot Cult. Tickets €20 inc fees on sale Monday 20th May 10am.  MEMORIAM was primarily developed to fill the void that was left following the tragic death of Martin “Kiddie” Kearns, the drummer from BOLT THROWER, back in September 2015.

  • read more
  • BOLT THROWER subsequently placed all activity on hold for the foreseeable future which gave Karl Willetts an opportunity to develop a new project with friends that had expressed interest in forming a band for some time.

    MEMORIAM are an old-school death metal band, maintaining the high standards set by their previous bands, focusing on the themes of death, loss and war. Initially the band members got together to play covers of songs that had influenced them throughout their careers within the death metal scene, however it soon became apparent that the new songs that they created were of a superior standard.

Wednesday 11th September - You Am I

Tickets €18.50 inclusive of booking fee, on sale 12th June at 9AM
Aiken Promotions proudly presents You Am I live at The Grand Social, 11th September.
You Am I are without doubt one of Australia’s all-time essential rock n’ roll bands. More than two decades on from their first album release, You Am I have not only had one of the longest and most successful recording careers in Australia, but are also without doubt one of our most loved live bands.

  • read more
  • Featuring guitarist and vocalist Tim Rogers along with band mates Russell Hopkinson on drums, Andy Kent on Bass, and (since 1999) Davey Lane on guitar, You Am I have released Ten studio albums to date. Their last studio album was the 2015 critically acclaimed “Porridge & Hot Sauce” release. Three of their releases have debuted at number one on the ARIA charts in consecutive order – 1995’s “Hi Fi Way”, 1996’s “Hourly, Daily” and 1998’s “#4 Record” – with the Albums also receiving multiple Platinum and Gold status for commercial sales. The band have won a total of Ten ARIA Awards including Album of the year, Best Group, and Best Independent Release. 2013 saw You Am I reissue remastered versions of their first three albums, “Sound As Ever”, “Hi Fi Way” and “Hourly Daily”, complete with extra tracks including never-before-released live material, Demo’s, alternate versions and B’sides. In support of these releases You Am I presented live performances of “Hourly Daily” and “Hi Fi Way” back-to-back in a lush theatre-styled extravaganza. You Am I sold over 10,000 tickets in Sydney and Melbourne alone, and this sold out run of national shows proved to be one of the most successful tours in the bands long and illustrious career. 2017 was a busy year for Tim Rogers with a pile of You Am I touring, and the release of his first book ‘Detours’ to critical acclaim. The band also released a live album “All Onboard” in December 2017 which was recorded in venues across Australia over 10 shows on their co-headline tour with Hoodoo Gurus. The 16 tracks just happened to be recorded in deep regional areas like Wagga Wagga, Wollongong, Traralgan and Canberra, and the album was available digitally and on vinyl. Aside from musical exploits the band made their first-time foray into the beverage world in 2013 with the production of their own ”Brew Am I" beer in conjunction with the Young Henry Brewery. In addition to success in Australia, You Am I have released a number of albums internationally, and toured worldwide headlining shows across North America and Europe.

Saturday 14th September - KING KHAN'S- Louder then Death

Louder Than Death began as the love child between King Khan and the almighty punk rock legends the Spits. Sean Spits had the vision and passed it on to King Khan in a ceremony involving the waking of a sleeping volcano and the shrinking of a gaping black hole. They had been working on songs secretly for the past 13 years and now finally they have decided to share it with the world. (Including "Broken Heart" which was the first song ever written by a 5 year-old Saba Lou and sung as a duet with Erin Spits). Louder Than Death is the royal family of punk rock bringing mayhem, chaos and maximum pleasure.

  • read more
  • The first people Khan blessed into the family were Looch Vibrato and Aggy Sonora from the Magnetix and Fredovitch on bass. These rulers of Bordeaux came with pearls all over and now form Louder Than Death along side the King who is still waiting patiently for the day that he will get his shit together and bring Sean Spits over to join them. When will that be? When the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie...... That's Amore!!!!! Hopefully Sean Spits will join them by 2019 until then watch these four tear time and space to shreds with their fierce razor sharp punk rock with full fisted action in their hearts and big brown middle fingers waving in the air. Album ou on In the red recording ( 07 /19 )

Friday 20th September - Jah Wobble & The Invaders Of The Heart

Friday September 20th- Original ticket holders tickets are valid or a refund is available. Doors: 7.30pm. Adm: €20 + €1.50 booking fee) - Bass/Punk/World Music pioneer and member of the legendary Public Image Ltd comes to Dublin for a special intimate show with full band in tow showcasing his latest album, ‘The Usual Suspects’ which Uncut described as ‘a ravishing suite of moods that gather at the intersection of dub, funk, prog jazz and world music’
Over the past three decades or so, Jah Wobble has ploughed his own furrow as a prolific solo artist, as well as becoming a well-respected session musician, with a genuine passion for Eastern and Global music. He has worked with a diverse range of musicians including Baaba Maal, Bjork, Primal Scream, Brian Eno, Sinead O’Connor, Julianne Regan, Dolores O’Riordan, Holgar Czukay, The Edge and Chaka Demus & Pliers.

  • read more
  • The man born John Wardle began his musical journey when he met John Lydon and Sid Vicious in 1973. It was Vicious who not only nicknamed John ‘Jah Wobble’ after a drunken binge but also loaned him his first bass guitar. Lydon asked JW to join Public Image Limited (aka PiL) in spring 1978. Wardle’s distinctive ‘low end’ bass became the backbone of PiL’s pioneering sound. After its follow-up, the exploratory yet sinister soundscapes of ‘Metal Box’, Wardle became disillusioned by politics within the band and their reluctance to play live. He eventually split from PiL in mid-1980 and embarked on a prolific solo career.

    Jah Wobble’s Invaders of the Heart released their debut album in 1990 and received a Mercury Music Prize nomination in 1991 for the ‘Rising above bedlam’ album. After the acclaimed ‘Take me to God’ album in 1994 the band split and Jah Wobble launched his own 30 Hertz record label which has subsequently released around 30 albums. His new album ‘The Usual Suspects’ was described as ‘a ravishing suite of moods that gather at the intersection of dub, funk, prog jazz and world music’ by Uncut magazine.

Saturday 21st September - Pere Ubu

THE GRAND SOCIAL & U:MACK presents Iconic American art-punk legends performing in Ireland for the last time.. PERE UBU - ‘The Last Goodbye’ Farewell Tour. Doors: 7.30pm. Adm: €25 (www.ticketweb.ie + bk fee). David Thomas and his band of merry experimentalist protopunks return to Dublin for the very last time, showcasing their swansong album ‘The Long Goodbye’.
Cleveland, Ohio’s Pere Ubu said hello in 1975 with the seven-inch apocalypse “30 Seconds Over Tokyo,” initiating a legacy of avant-rock challenge and dissonance that comes to an end in The Long Goodbye, announced by founding singer David Thomas as the band’s last album.

  • read more
  • As tangled in shadows and slicing observation as Raymond Chandler’s namesake novel, the album — layered in dense, pictorial electronics — evokes Ubu’s early riff-driven reckoning in the electro-garage opener “What I Heard on the Pop Radio” and the high-noon noir “Flicking Cigarettes at the Sun.” The darkness and programming closes in even tighter as Thomas crosses a nation of ravaged landscapes and battered dreams in the long spoken fever of “The Road Ahead.” (“I am the last of the Americans,” he notes at one juncture. “After us come barbarians.”) A bonus CD from a 2018 concert includes a reprise of “Heart of Darkness,” the B side of that ’75 single, bringing this ride full circle.

    The new album by Pere Ubu, 'The Long Goodbye’ is the end of a road. David Thomas has been talking about Pere Ubu’s journey on the road to Satisfied City for many years but he has now declared that they have arrived. Named after Raymond Chandler’s novel, Mr Thomas says, ‘This wraps up every song and story that Pere Ubu has been telling in different ways for the past forty plus years. It is one definitive hour that provides the answers to the questions we’ve been asking and delivers it up into what I consider the definitive destination.”

    This Pere Ubu album does not sound like any of the others. It has a large expanse of synths due to Thomas writing and arranging the songs alone with his private collection of drum machines, synthesizers and, uh, a melodeon… before sending it out to the other musicians in Pere Ubu’s extensive fold, with an invitation for them to take it on and make it more.

Tuesday 24th September - Tiny Moving Parts

Aiken Promotions proudly presents Tiny Moving Parts live at The Grand Social, Dublin, 24th September 2019. Tickets €16.00 inclusive of booking fee, on sale now from Ticketmaster.ie and outlets Nationwide. Tiny Moving Parts has always been a vehicle for catharsis, and that’s nothing new on breathe. The fifth full-length by the Benson, Minnesota, trio sees vocalist/guitarist Dylan Mattheisen and his cousins, brothers Matt (bass) and Billy (drums) Chevalier, tackle issues such as mental health, anxiety and mortality while also expanding their sound.

  • read more
  • Recorded with longtime collaborator Greg Lindholm and established pop producer John Fields (Jimmy Eat World, Goo Goo Dolls, All Time Low), breathe is a valuable reminded that we’re all in this together, channelled through the band’s trademark blend of math-rock, pop-punk and emo, albeit with a few new musical tricks (including some electronic flourishes and a banjo). More than just a collection of songs, breathe serves as an important emotional crutch. It’s the friend we all need at our darkest times. It’s the sound of a band coming to terms with their own mortality, their own anxieties, their own self-doubts. And it’s a reminder that, as long as there are songs sung back as if our lives depend on them, we are never alone. Don’t miss Tiny Moving Parts, live at The Grand Social, 24 th September 2019

Friday 27th September - Nealo

Nealo began his journey into hip hop music in 2018. Having fronted the hardcore punk band, Frustration, for 8 years and touring both the United States and Europe multiple times, Irish MC Nealo began to look into other avenues for writing lyrics. After a tragic start to the year, the Blanchardstown native channeled his negativity and sadness through lyricism, and has truly found a comfortable home in hip hop. His debut release October Year dropped in October 2018 to a huge reception and gained praise from fans and critics alike. One such was Nialler 9 writing, "An Irish MC with a difference, remember the name". October Year garnered radio play from 2FM, SPIN, and 98FM, and the record was also featured in District Magazine and on 'The New Eire'  Spotify playlist. This was followed with a record release headliner which sold out in under a week.

Wednesday 2nd October - John Power

JOHN POWER Wednesday, October 2nd Doors: 7:30PM Tickets €18.50 - http://bit.ly/John-Power-Tickets In addition to a flourishing solo career, John Power had the distinction of being a member of two iconic British bands of the 1980s and '90s, the La's and Cast. Born in Liverpool, England, in 1967, Power was 19 years old when he formed a band with fellow Liverpudlian Lee Mavers; that band would become the La's, one of the most legendary U.K. acts of the '80s, who released a top-selling album in 1990 but were also fabled for their striking live shows and the eccentricities of Mavers, who was never able to reproduce his grand musical vision in the recording studio.

  • read more
  • In 1992, Power became frustrated with the slow progress of the La's' second album and wanted an outlet for his own songs. Leaving Mavers and company and moving from bass to guitar, Power formed Cast; while they lacked the critical acclaim of fellow Britpop bands such as Oasis and Blur, Cast's powerful, straight-ahead rock approach clicked with audiences, and their 1995 debut, All Change, became the fastest-selling debut album in the history of the venerable Polydor label.

    Cast's second and third albums, 1997's Mother Nature Calls and 1999's Magic Hour, both went Top Ten in the U.K., but 2001's Beetroot was a massive commercial disappointment, and in 2002 Power broke up the band. In 2003, Power released his first solo album, a deeply personal acoustic set called Happening for Love, but the disc attracted few listeners and in 2005 Power rejoined the La's when Lee Mavers opted to reunite the band for a series of festival appearances.

    While continuing to work with the La's, Power resumed his solo career in 2006, releasing an album of hard-stomping folk-rock, Willow She Weeps, in the fall of that year and supporting the set with a tour of the U.K.
