St Luke's to serve up HamsandwicH

Wednesday, 21st November, 2018 3:54pm

With a name that has raised as many eyebrows as it has watered mouths, indie rock band HamsandwicH will play Live at St Luke’s this Saturday.

The band play the unique northside venue on the heels of their triumphant return to Electric Picnic and the IndiePendence Festival in 2018.

Since forming in 2003 at a Good Friday crucifixion party in Kells, county Meath, the quirky quintet has toured Ireland extensively, releasing three studio albums.

Known for their incendiary live performances, the band released their debut single, ‘Sad Songs’, in August 2005 on their own independent label, Route 109A Records, named after the bus route that connects Kells and Dublin.

Set apart by the powerful and sweet vocals of singer Niamh Farrell and Podge McNamee's juxtaposing baritone, HamsandwicH has established itself as one of the top touring acts in Ireland, feeding hungry audiences their own brand of melodic, hook-laden indie for over 15 years.

Having sold out Dublin’s prestigious Olympia Theatre no less than three times, supported Arcade Fire and The Pixies, played on the main stage at both the Electric Picnic and Longitude Festivals, performed at the legendary Slane Castle with Bon Jovi, and been personally invited by Mumford & Sons to support them in Phoenix Park, it’s safe to say that HamsandwicH are a band on a roll, thriving on the fruits of hard graft, extensive touring and great song writing.

HamsandwicH, along with special guests, play Live at St Luke’s on Saturday 24 November. Doors open at 7.30pm. Tickets cost €26 plus booking fee. Tickets can be purchased from
