Info: With less than 24 hours before Whelan's Ones To Watch 2018 kicks off, here's a round-up via playlist of the latest acts to be added to the roster, and they are most ticklish, cap-doffs to bands I've seen live before such as The Wood Burning Savages, if you have an ounce of 70's rock in your person, a must see. Alien She will be one of the bands that leave a mark on you this weekend, you will remember their performance for a long time after January, easily into those much harked after 'longer-evenings'. Tanjier, well they're just completely majestic electro-pop, and right at the fornt of the pack in their genre in Ireland right now, I saw them twice in 2017 and both times was a wowza. 

Galway band The Clockworks are pop-punk-rock-skiffle maestros, they write the songs your feet want to hear, and having them on the main stage on Thursday is a gift. One of the bands that have been so so dear to our hearts since the blog began and multiple live shows later that hasn't changed, I'm very excited to see Segrasso this weekend. Their live show is guaranteed to slip along the spectrum from shoegaze to distorted rock carnage by the end and they've been one of the best live bands I've seen over the last 3 years. Young Earth, an immense pop-rock force made up of frontman Mark O'Keeffe, and fellow guitarists Alex O'Keeffe and Dylan Maher, and one of Dublin city's finest drummers, Ben Mulligan.

The most important thing about WOTW though, is seeing bands and acts you haven't seen live before, and of the new additions to the line-up I'm eager to see Akora, Susie Blue, Moon Looks On, and Slow Riot, and as always happens, I end up falling head over heels for the ones I wasn't watching closely enough beforehand.

Stage times for Saturday and Sunday will be confirmed very soon, for updates and to purchase tickets, keep an eye on the Whelan's Ones To Watch Facebook page here https://www.facebook.com/events/392490561171182/
