This Thursday!

The AU 6th Birthday Party Tour comes to Masons Bar, Derry on Thursday 9th July 2009.

Celebrating 6 years of publication, AU have invited two of Ireland's top bands to kick off the festivities in style!

Returning to Derry after their triumphant album launch show in April, will be the all conquering And So I Watch You From Afar.

Returning to their home country on the back of a major European tour in support of American rock band Clutch, 'ASIWYFA' are on point to lay waste to all before them! Showcasing new tunes as well as playing material from their hugely successful debut long player - this will be one performance you can't afford to miss

Joining ASIWYFA as co-headliners will be Adebisi Shank. Firm faves on the Derry scene, these Wexford-based instru-punk nutters are a must-see event all of their own!

It's been said before and it will no doubt be said again, but if you've yet to experience the good-time carnage that Adebisi bring to the party - then you are missing out!

Joining that two-headed jauggernaut on the night will be Derry-based melodic hardcore outfit Spectator. Dealing in pummelling riffs reminiscent of mid-90s Helmet, Spectator take the blueprint for lost art of the hard-rocking guitar band and update it for the 21st Century.

Rounding off the bill will be Cork-based post-punkers Elk.

"bashing and bruising itself on the obtuse angles of post punk, the sugary sweet synthetic sing/shout along melodies of modern day indie-pop and the fast, trashy convulsions of hardcore – like Gang of Four, Wolf Parade and Melt Banana sucking down on the same slab of Red Bull. In a word frantic!” (Cork Independent)

Smalltown America DJs will be on hand to spin the tunes before, between and after the bands - OH WHAT A NIGHT!

Doors are at 8pm, Admission is only £5
