Looking at the weekend Livefeed have a special Cruinniú na nÓg show at 2PM in the Róisín Dubh where you can enjoy performances from the next generation of talented young songwriters, musicians and bands in Galway; An new exhibtion in Galway City Museum showcases music posters from Galway between 1977 and 1982 – The posters represent a moment in time before Irish bands such as U2 emerged on to the international music scene and changing musical tastes sounded the decline of the Irish showband scene, as discos and bars replaced dancehalls and ballrooms. On Sunday night you can catch D-beat legends Physique in the Cellar with support from Scream, Cinch and Cheap Laugh.

And finally a Galway band who have been on our playlist a lot this week ‘Morning Screams‘ dropped a live video from the Loft with an intro Jam that we *think* is the XX – around 2 mins in they move into ‘Unlovable’ which according to the band it was created at the height of the lockdown in sunny Donegal overlooking the Atlantic ocean.
