ICABS benefit gig - great music and a great cause
August 2006

ICABS is delighted to announce that a campaign benefit gig will take place on Saturday, August 26th at The Stables venue (behind The Yukon) on Dominick Street, Mullingar. Please join us on the night for an exciting line-up featuring Waiting to Explode, Innate and The Jung Turks.

Kicking off the night at around 9pm will be two-piece group, The Jung Turks. They will be followed on stage by popular Mullingar rock band, Innate. One of the longest running local acts, Innate's set will include some gems from their recently released debut album, Sweetmess.

Headlining the event will be Waiting to Explode, fresh from entertaining the crowds at a Welsh music festival. Renowned for their on-stage energy and lively fusion of funk and rock, the foursome are always an absolute crowd pleaser. Waiting to Explode enjoyed success during the summer with their latest EP and have just returned from London where they've wrapped up their debut album. This will be a great opportunity to see the band before they launch this anticipated release in the coming weeks.

ICABS is grateful to all three bands for coming together for this special event. We are also indebted to music student, Tanya O'Callaghan, for organising the night. A long-time supporter of the campaign against blood sports in Ireland, Tanya has several animal welfare fund-raisers to her credit. Her previous event in April, a night in aid of Westmeath Friends of Animals, was a resounding success.

Please come along on the 26th for an enjoyable night out and a chance to show your support for the ICABS campaign. Thank you very much.
