Dundalk Showcase Night ‘Avocado Rocks’ celebrates first anniversary

April 13, 2023

Avocado Rocks, a monthly music event hosted by Sonya Larrigan and Caroline Reel celebrate their first-year anniversary on Friday 14th April in Toales Tavern.

These very successful showcase nights have been providing a platform in Dundalk for Irish acts, both local and nationally for the past year.

Local acts that have graced the stage include bands such as Pork Pie, RP3000, Four Way Mirror, Arco Arena, Hacksaw to name a few and solo acts such as ICEPOP, Ines Khai, Clara Byrne, Caoimhin Brady and Kellie Reid.

For their special anniversary night, they have an amazing line-up with Cavan duo ‘Face of The Earth’ back by popular demand. Another firm favourite of Avocado Rocks, ICEPOP will be taking to the stage. Natalie Moran Music, a Dublin based act with Dundalk’s own Sonya Larrigan on drums is surely one to watch this year. Finally, a newly formed all female outfit which started as playing together for fun, we have Messy Avocado. The songs written by Caroline Reel and Treasa McCabe with Sonya Larrigan on drums, Aoife Crowe on trumpet and a new bassist to join soon, there are big plans afoot to write and record new music.

“We are just happy to give others the opportunity that we also seek, in getting our music out there to a live audience.”

Avocado Rocks launched a spotify playlist (Avocado Rocks Dundalk) of all the acts that have played since the first one in April 2022.
