#CLMF'17 - John Blek and The Rats
Coughlans
10:30 pm, FREE
John Blek & The Rats play a FREE show on the Saturday night of Coughlans Live Music Festival '17. “Defiantly knocking on the door of major international breakthrough with their Americana rock sound fused with perfectly crafted songs” — EVENING ECHO (IRL) “Poetic, powerful, oftentimes haunting... the band’s best and most complex album yet.” — IRISH ECHO (US) “Borders sees them embark on a bold, brave and, more importantly, exciting new journey. Leaving behind their more pronounced Americana influences, the album is darker in places - and they’ve grown to become a potentially stadium bothering beast” — HOT PRESS “They are the perfect band to take a festival crowd by the scruff of the neck with their tuneful, punky brand of Americana” — WHISPERIN & HOLLERIN (UK) “The sextet has quickly won the hearts of critics, their sound an infecting mix of folk, country, and Americana. The melancholy of their music combined with pounding rhythms and infectious choruses leads to beautiful songs that will delight a wide audience.” — WILDWECHSEL (DEU) “The Rats leave the stage under thunderous applause, a spectacular conclusion of an extraordinary concert.” — HALLER TAGBLATT (DEU)
