The Alternative Sunday Social Club Presents Eileen Gogan Live in The Wild Duck, Sunday March 13th
Eileen Gogan has been a fixture on the Dublin music scene for a good many years, performing in various bands including The Would Be’s, The Revenants, Acton Bell and The Drays. She also performed with Microdisney on their reunion gigs in 2018.
Her breakthrough moment came in 2020 with the release of her second solo album “Under Moving Skies”, which received a 4-star review in MOJO, play on Gideon Coe’s BBC6 Music show, and widespread praise from Irish and UK media and radio.
The Irish Times called her… “one of Ireland’s most underrated artists” while Americana UK magazine called her album…“a showcase for Gogan’s beguiling vocals”.
About the Alternative Sunday Social Club
The Alternative Sunday Social Club was created so that music fans can enjoy some top tunes on the last afternoon of the weekend. Since we launched at the beginning of 2015, we’ve hosted gigs by Rocky DeValera (front man of legendry Dublin bands The Gravediggers and The Rhythm Kings), The Dubtones, Blood or Whiskey, The Business, Brush Shield’s Skid Row, Trouble Pilgrims (formerly The Radiators from Space), The Lee Harveys, Eileen Gogan and the Instructions, JC Carroll (The Members), The Winters, The Hacklers, TV Smith (The Adverts), Strand, The Unelectables and The Outcasts. We’ve had music from right across the spectrum with rock, guitar pop, punk, Americana, blues and ska and we’ve grown our crowd by word of mouth with all ages dropping by on Sunday afternoons. For the band they get the kick of their early live shows, and the audience gets to enjoy the music and the musician up-close and personal. It’s cheap, cheerful and above all fun for everybody who comes along. This isn’t 1000s of people in a converted warehouse; this is dozens of people enjoying music the way it was meant to be seen and heard.
