The Cellar Bar
A Modern Movement with We Come in Pieces, Puck and Red Sun Alert
Downstairs at The Cellar Bar on Galway’s Eglinton Street, A Modern Movement will bring you the best of new alternative music with three live bands who are ready to storm the stage. Limerick band We Come in Pieces will bring their rousing performance style to The Cellar. Following numerous Irish, UK, and European tours, they are writing original music again and building the next chapter in heavy alt-rock.
They will be joined by Galway-based Puck, who combine an anti-establishment punk attitude with their eclectic music taste. This three-piece musical manifesto are bold, daring and ready to rock this Saturday night.
Not only that, but Cork’s Red Sun Alert will also take to the stage for a loud and raucous show. Fresh from releasing their new EP, the riotous band worked with producer Eoin Hayes to deliver their new sound to a wider audience. This female fronted outfit combines harsh vocals with angular guitar riffs and math-rock influences. And their aim is to create an all inclusive environment and promote women and non binary individuals in heavy music at their concerts.
It’s set to be a wild adventure into the AMM world tonight at The Cellar Bar. For those looking for classic hits and popular anthems, The Good Life will gig upstairs for a night of top tunes and covers.
