3rd ROB SMITH + guest Cillian Foster *
What happens if you get a mix between The Stone Roses, The Beatles and a hint of Paul Weller with a little solo twist? The answer is ROB SMITH. Rob Smith burst onto the Dublin music scene in late 2003. During this time he toured extensively in many venues around the country. Sharing stages with many national and international acts, he earned himself praise musically from people such as Christy Dignam (Aslan) to Mark Coyle (Oasis' producer). Around this time he made a demo CD called "The Soul Shaker CD" which he'd give out at gigs which ultimately gave him an audience to play his own shows to in venues. Between then and now Rob has played live at venues such as Vicar Street, Olympia Theatre, Whelans, The Village, Eamonn Dorans, The Sugar Club, Sky Portlaoise, Dolans Limerick, TF Royal Theatre Castlebar, Limelight Belfast, Music Factory Carlow, Empire Music Hall Belfast, Cavern Club Liverpool, Garage Glasgow to name but a few. His debut album "Throwing It All Away" was recorded in November 2007 when Rob packed up all his guitars, bass, drums, keyboards, laptops, pedals, boards…you name it…wrote and recorded the album within a week, playing all the instruments himself. Sounds like a rushed job. Not really. He had this all in his head for years. It sounds perfect. And March 2008 will see it's release. But enough of that. What makes Rob Smith different? F**k knows...check it out for yourself. Anyone who said they ever walked away from a Rob Smith gig disappointed obviously has never been to one. Maybe that's it!

4th BABYJENX + guests Tornado Lovely & Daire O'Reilly (Superstate)
"So beautiful, so intoxicating, so heavenly . . . Gary Reddy's voice reaches soaring glorious falsettos with an ease that would make Thom Yorke envious" – Musician.ie
Named after a character in Anne Rice's Vampire Chronicles, Baby Jenx have been together since the summer of 2005. Influenced by the big stadium sounds of U2, Coldplay and Radiohead, but with their own musical aesthetic firmly to the fore, they played their debut gig in legendary Dublin venue Mother Redcaps later that same year.
"Gary Reddy eases the crowd in with a range of vocal pirouettes reminiscent of Thom Yorke, along with a series of gentle rock ballads" – Hot Press
Over the following months, Baby Jenx honed their live skills with a multitude of gigs. Their dynamic shows at the Irish IMRO showcase, Boston's NEMO Music Festival and Castlepalooza earned them rave reviews.
"Their sound has clear elements of Coldplay, and singer Gary Reddy is a natural performer and exceptional singer" – IMRO magazine
They recorded their first demo with producer Declan Lonergan in Bluebird Studios in Co. Kildare. This demo received extensive radio airplay, and was immediately chosen as Hot Press magazine's 'Demo of the Fortnight' by none other than Jackie Hayden (the former CBS boss, known for giving U2 their first record deal).
"The real gem is 'So Long', which opens around a slow staccato piano before it builds with sensitivity and pathos to a real ear-opener" – Jackie Hayden, Hot Press.
'So Long' also gained the band a video production through a competition run by Hot Press and TISCH School of Performing Arts in New York. The resulting video was subsequently playlisted on Sky Network's The Musician Channel. Baby Jenx so impressed their video director, filmmaker Tess Nanavati, that she commissioned them to write two original songs for her own independent film projects. 'Evenesce' and 'Nemoc' feature prominently in Nanavati's movies Dreams Of An Angel and Nemoc respectively.
Baby Jenx spent the latter half of 2007 showcasing for Labels in Florida and Boston while also writing and recording material for their debut album. 2008 kicked of to a fantastic start, when the band's track 'Sell Yourself' was used as the backing track to the goals montage on RTE's show 'The Premiership'. Baby Jenx returned to the live seen with their debut Mullingar gig playing support to Aslan, having impressed the guys on the night they have since been added as support on a number of Aslan's coming shows. Manager, local Mullingar man Derek Colbert is especially excited to have the band headlining at the wonderfully intimate 'Stables' venue and with support on the night coming from local band 'Tornado Lovely' & Superstate frontman Daire O'Reilly it sure promises to be a great night of music!

5th All ages gig presented by SuperKidd Promotions featuring Venture Now, Twenty Twelve, In Between Hours & Wasted Case 3pm
April 5th is a notable date on the calendar this year as not only does it signify the anniversaries of the passing of respective legends Kurt Cobain and Layne Staley but also the first birthday of SuperKidd Promotions.

Confirmed to play are Deis Roc alumni Venture Now and Wasted Case, Mullingars own Twenty Twelve and a special performance from Ricky Byrnes (Triega) new side project.
Home town heroes' Venture Now are well known to most for their show stealing performances on TG4's Deis Roc which has won them an army of new fans and critical acclaim to boot.
Twenty Twelve recently thrilled the crowd with their first late show set in the Stables supporting The Flaws so these young maestros will no doubt endear themselves to the young crowd too.
Hailing from the Ballyfermot school of Rock, In Between Hours is, local drum specialist, Ricky Byrnes new side project which has already won them a legion of fans in Dublin. Fronted by the talented Cliodhna Dempsey they make their Mullingar debut with SuperKidd Promotions on April 5th.
It wouldn't be a celebration without presents so there'll be a few treats to be won and all for the low low price of 5 euros, you'd be silly not to! Doors are at 2.30 so don't be late!

5th REBECCA COLLINS + guest Pete Courtney
Rebecca grew up in the Irish seaside town of Tramore, Co. Waterford. Night time radio was her lifeline all through her formative years. She initially harboured hopes of being a writer but that soon gave way to her addiction to music. By the time she moved to Dublin at the age of 18, she had cultivated an obsession with songwriting.
She then ventured from music studies in Trinity College through gospel choirs, free improvisation and folk ensembles to find herself at her current juncture. She has collaborated with renowned composers such as Roger Doyle and Trevor Knight, theatre director Selina Cartmell, and numerous underground bands such as Giraffe Running and Red Rocket. She has also soaked up as much of Dublin's jazz and alternative scenes as possible along the way, and is an active member of the Irish music collective The Living Room Project.
Last year, Rebecca independently released an ep entitled At Sea which introduced her dark, lyrical songs to the world and won her recognition from radio presenters and listeners alike. The radio hero of her teenage years, John Kelly, even invited her to play live on his show The JK Ensemble for a week-long feature on her music.
Constantly writing and exploring new territory with her fellow musicians, Rebecca's debut album came into being as a result of a low-key gig performed in a friend's living room. The songs bristled with energy and Rebecca knew this was how she wanted to record them - in a live setting. When all the musicians happened to be in New York for a time in January 2007, she corralled them in a studio for two days, and Chameleon Blues was born.
Rebecca lists Tom Waits and avant-rock doyenne Annette Peacock as musical touchstones. She also names John Martyn's Solid Air and the sensual Wong Kar-Wai film In the Mood for Love as influences on Chameleon Blues. In her words, it is an album to be taken "song by song - it is episodic, but there is a common thread - desire. I really wanted there to be a freedom, an unabashed feeling to the music."
So does Rebecca have a target audience in mind?
"Yes and no. Let's just say that these songs are for anyone who has ever woken up in the middle of the night with their heart racing..."
'Chameleon Blues' is released on Rebecca's own label Mutineer (www.mutineermusic.com)

1953-San Antonio, Texas: Born into an army family Terry Lee attended 10 schools in 10 different cities. After finishing high school in Yakima, Washington he set out for Seattle, then California and continued from there to travel in the States all the while learning to play guitar and write songs. TLH has worked as a carpenter, truck driver, farm and ranch hand, cook, laborer, bar tender, booking agent and various other occupations to support himself, his daughter (as a single parent) and his music. From the first time he heard Bill Haley's "Rock Around The Clock" he wanted to be a guitar player and indeed, bought his first at 14. Terry Lee has lived and traveled extensively in America and, since 1993, in Europe as well. Currently keeping a house in Seattle where he has lived since January of 1984, he spends most of his days writing and touring in Europe. While in Europe he resides in France. His first appearances on record was on 1987's - "Lowlife" compilation from Ironwood Records and the following year with the song "Dead Is Dead" on SubPop 200.

11th JADED SUN + guests Crimson & Deborah Jane
Formed in 2003, Jaded Sun went through the paces as most other bands do, gigging and saving to enable them to record their critically acclaimed debut EP "Raw" in 2004. The EP titled track "Raw" launched their rock profile to a national stage becoming the most downloaded track on Ireland's premier download charts. The track broke all down load records in Ireland, staying at the top of the charts for almost 30 weeks.
In May 2005, the band straight into the studio with Ireland's top rock producers Chris O'Brien and Graham Murphy, Chris being known for his work with Aslan, Hot House Flowers, Adam Clayton and The Boom Town Rats.
"John (lead singer) is arguably one of the best lead vocalists have ever worked with or ever seen." Chris O'Brien
With the "Falling On The Fears" EP being tipped for number 1 by Larry Gogan on release in late 05, the band were making a name for themselves on the international scene, being asked to write the theme song for a movie remake of Apocolypse Snow, a cult snowboarding movie in the 80's, with Hollywood backing.
The band started 2006 running with a plethora of gigs topping the year with their amazing performance supporting Bon Jovi in Croke Park, showing them as Irelands hottest new rock band for years. (Jaded Sun are only the third Irish band ever to play in Ireland's largest music arena.)
Jaded Sun spent most of last year writing and finalising songs for their debut Album. With all concentration on the record, the band played only a few gigs in 07' including an outdoor headline gig in Zagreb Main Square, Croatia and the Hennessy Artistry, Ireland.
Since returning from America, Jaded Sun are currently preparing to start gigging and promoting their new album. www.myspace.com/jadedsun www.myspace.com/crimsonrock www.myspace.com/deborahjane

18th STANLEY SUPER 800 + guests
Stanley Super 800's new album "LOUDER & CLEARER" is in the shops since Oct 12th '07. Here's some nice things other people have been saying about it:
"LOUDER & CLEARER is a massively enjoyable album" 4/5 IRISH INDEPENDENT
"Sterling pop chops.......where demented low fi, rag time weirdness and experimentalism flourish. Stanley Super 800 channel the universal underdog." 8/10 HOT PRESS
"I think Stanley Super 800 are the best band out of Ireland in years. They have great songs and a totally original sound." – Andy Bell (Oasis + Ride)
"The first album to stake its claim for next year's Choice Music Award comes from on-fire Leesiders Stanley Super 800, who have delivered one of the Irish albums of 2007, no matter what ensues between now and December 31."
Mark Kavanagh, Music editor, Irish Daily Star
"Plugging everything from Trance to Super Furries quirkiness to Ramones-y intensity into its' personal power grid, 'Louder and Clearer' revels in its' diversity and is frequently totally sublime." – Tim Peacock (Whisperin' & Hollerin)
"Louder and Clearer is another melting pot of ideas, creativity, soul and downright dance appeal from the unique talent that is Stanley Super 800. Up there with the most innovative and imaginative releases from an Irish act in years."
- Michael Carr, The Green Room, 96FM
"I can safely say that "Louder & Clearer" is one of the best albums I've heard written by a Cork band in some time."
-Colm O' Sullivan, Green on Red, RedFM + Evening Echo
"Having heard "Louder & Clearer" I can say SS800 have raised the bar. With a steady helping production hand coming from Mark O' Sullivan (DK7 + The Mighty Quark), its only fair to say the production kicks ass, the songs kick ass, the performance kicks ass – in fact, no ass has been left unkicked" – Graham Lynch, Cork Independent
""Louder & Clearer" is one of the most exciting albums I have heard this year. Great songs that need to be heard"
- Stevie G Red FM
"Love the album. I've been playing it non-stop for the last week. Strong songs and a unique sound throughout."

19th All ages Metal gig with Awaken Dominion, Colour System Failure, Tyfus, Chaotik & Last Judgement 2pm
Another all ages metal gig headlined by Mullingars own 'Awaken Dominion'. Joined by Dublins 'Colour System Failure', Offaly band Tyfus, Longford band Chaotik and newcomers Last Judgement. Fully supervised gig starting at 2pm and over by 6pm.

19th TUCAN + guests Agitated Radio Pilot & Junah (acoustic)
Donal Gunne and Pearse Feeney form the band Túcan, an instrumental, acoustic guitar duo that incorporates a wide and varied range of styles into their playing; from classical and 60's rock to heavy metal and jazz.
They have been playing together since 1999 though they only started to perform live four years ago as the first four years were spent building the solid musical foundation they felt they required. Their sound is definitely colored by the fact that neither has any formal musical training and prefers to develop their skills through keen ears, an insatiable love for music and long hours spent honing their melodies and arrangements.
They played on occasion with two classically trained violinists from Dublin. This eventually led them to gaining a support slot for Rodrigo y Gabriela in UCD in front of a packed house of approximately 800. The Mexican duo have been a constant source of inspiration for the two, showing how instrumental music on two guitars could be brought to life on-stage in front of mainstream audiences.
Túcan are now one of Irelands most sought after festival acts. They have stolen the show at such festivals as the Donegal Music Festival and sliabh an iarainn, in Drumshambo Co. Leitrim, where they outshined Dervish as the support act. This seen them play to a crowd of over 1000 roaring fans. Most recently the band was spotted by the brilliant Regina Spektor who asked them to support her at her sold out concert in Tripod. They were delighted to accept the offer, and they hugely impress 1400 people. Túcan then played Irelands most prestige's festival, Electric Picnic. They were originally booked to play the POD acoustic stage at 5pm on the Saturday; this went so well the organizers asked the band to play the closing gig of the body and soul area (and the whole festival) at 2.30am Monday morning. Túcan wowed a 3000 strong crowd and have ensured a major slot at the festival this year. Túcan most recently headlined the sold out Sligo Live festival in October, sharing the stage with such acts as Alabama 3.
The show is not only a musical masterpiece but is also an enthralling visual display of fantastic guitar work. Túcan gigs are renowned for high tempo crowd pleasing music that has to be seen to be believed.
Túcan were the proud recipients of the 'Best Musical Group' award at the 14th annual AOIFE (association of Irish festival events) conference which was held at the end of 2007. The award was recognition of a great debut year for the pair which saw them grabbing the limelight at venues and festivals across the country. Túcan were on hand to receive the accolade and wrapped up a great night with a stomping set which was very well received by the gathered delegates.
It capped what was a productive year for the duo and bodes well for them as they head into '08.
Special guests on the night are Agitated Radio Pilot who impressed Tucan so much when they both supported Ronan O'Snodaigh recently that they insisted they support them for their gig. Opening up will be Junah in a 2 piece set up. Junah have played the Stables as a full band and also played the front bar as a stripped back acoustic 5 piece. This gig sees the sibling frontmen perform as a 2 piece acoustic duo.

28th EQUINOX JAZZ QUARTET play the music of Thelonious Monk 9pm
Equinox is the time at which day and night are of equal length.
It is a time of balance within a continually shifting process, and a period of stability in between extremes.
The four members of the jazz quartet Equinox are like minded in their desire to balance opposing musical forces; tension and resolution, dissonance and consonance, innovation and tradition. The quartet consists of three Americans and an Irishman, all coming from different backgrounds, yet all working together to express a common sense of balance and harmony.
Equinox is based in The Netherlands, where all the band members have made their home. All of the members of the quartet are steeped in the jazz tradition, which continually informs their search for personal avenues of expression in improvisation and composition. Among the band's strengths is a vast and wide ranging repertoire that includes originals by all band members, modern and classic jazz pieces, and choice American songbook standards.
Equinox will be touring Ireland in April and May of 2008 in a project devoted to performing the music of the great composer and pianist Thelonious Monk.

* Free Gig in the Yukon Bar
** Free Gig in the Stables Venue
++ Tickets available behind the bar / Heartbeat City
