SLOW TRAVEL BERLIN
Folk Punk Rock Festival, SO36, 8pm
The first year of the Folk Punk Rock Festival (FPRF) was a great success, with The Real McKenzies, The Men They Couldn’t Hang, The Roughneck Riot, and Sir Reg performing. This year, for its third installment, FPRF will take place at SO36, with bands from Germany, the Netherlands, and Scotland in the lineup.
DJ Spider Mahone will get the crowd in the mood, spinning a special brand of Irish punk music: Shamrock ‘n’ Roll. And from the sound of the band and artist names -Mr. Irish Bastard, The Wakes, The O’Reillys and the Paddyhats, and The Grolschbusters – it’s not difficult to imagine the atmosphere that festival goers will be privy to.
With drink specials on whisk(e)y, beer, and cider to boot, it’s certain to be one hell of a night. Natalye Childress
