Three of the best new artists in Ireland bring a mellow take on new Irish music to Derry’s Nerve Centre this Sunday evening, September 8.

Topping the bill at the Nerve Centre will be Derry’s own Our Krypton Son, alongside two fellow Smalltown America signings, Cry Monster Cry and In Their Thousands.

Chris McConaghy aka Our Krypton Son brings his full band to the Nerve Centre, a place where he first cut his first musical teeth with psychobilly art-rockers Red Organ Serpent Sound. In recent years, Our Krypton Son shared stages with the likes of Cashier No. 9, David Kitt, Gemma Hayes and Jape all over Ireland. Gathering plaudits along the way for his seemingly effortless lyrics and understated vocals, Chris then gathered close musician friends together to create Our Krypton Son, eventually recording their eponymously titled debut album that was produced by Sam Williams (Supergrass, Plan B, The Noisettes, Tricky, Kula Shaker and The Go Team).

Dublin’s Cry Monster Cry create folk music drawn from a rich song writing history and brotherly harmonies, while Guinness/Hot Press Play On the Day winners In Their Thousands will provide dynamic arrangements, powerful vocal harmonies and signature hooks.

Doors 7.30pm, curfew 11pm, over 16 age restriction and tickets are £5.
