So we’ve come to the end of an emotional year. For me it ends with Strummer anniversary remembrance gig on Saturday with Trouble Pilgrims, El Clash Combo and Dubtones. Clashjamwallop were down for this gig at one stage but they are unfortunately no more so El Clash Combo have stepped into the breach! El Clash Combo are fronted by Bokker ex Side FX from late ‘70s & Dave Doran on guitar. Should be a great night and all in aid of Fr Peter McVerry Trust.

2 gigs you may want to go and see Grit play with the Sultans on the 28th or the Vulpynes on the same night in the Underground, or even the Outcasts to end the year off in a punk fashion. Have a great Christmas season and keep looking out for live music when you can
