modern life is rubbish 2nd line-up announced ~ thursday 26th june

Modern Life Is Rubbish today announced the official line-up for their second gig night. Set for 26th June, in The Pavilion, Belfast, the three bands on offer promise a high energy night of indie, straight up rock and roll.

Opening the night come the Madchester vibes of three piece 'Surfhouse'. Displaying more than a passing resemblance to the legendary Happy Mondays, the bands unique sound is unmatched by any in this country and with time so heavily on the side of this young group a bright future looks a certainty.

Twenty Four Hour Party People will want to come down early for this one.

Following Surhouse are a band Encore NI have always praised in the past, it is, in the words of UTV's Julian Simmons 'The Fabulous Sass'. With a back catalog of pile driving anthems, acoustic driven beauties and 60's tinged rock and roll, this is a band making a dramatic comeback from a turbulent few months which may have threatened the end of their musical journey. Instead, they're back and even more determined than before. A must see.

Finally, a head-line act that needs no introduction. Proclaimed by many as the saviors of rock and roll, with extensive touring experience and an army of fans at their disposal, it's Belfast's Echo Raptors. Destined for great things, they're unlikely to play this venue ever again, a rare chance to see a band destined for greatness up close and personal.
