Back in January 2008 local promoters Sounds of NI launched their monthly series of showcase gigs at Hague's Bar in Lisburn (they had already been running Belfast gigs for a couple of years) and hoped to at least have a 6 month run. Eight years later they are now celebrating another anniversary, and they will host a very special birthday party to mark the occasion, on Thursday 28th January, with 5 live acts playing on the night.
This show will also be the official launch party for the Sounds of NI Radio Show - which is broadcast on Lisburn's 98FM each Thursday night from 8-9pm, and which features the best in Northern Irish music (with a large Lisburn input). The show is presented by SONI man Philip McCarroll, an kicked off in November '15 - but it is now time to throw a party, just in time for the 13th episode!
All-female band Vokxen will headline the show - bringing their atmospheric indie-pop/rock to the SONI stage for the first time. The rest of the line-up will be acoustic based - Lisburn favourites Invinyl will play a rare gig and another band from the city, The Titanics, will play their first ever acoustic set.
Kicking off the night will be Ash Smith, now a solo artist after his spells in Smoking Tongue and Whanau, and Ethan Hanna.
It promises to be a very special night - a warm and welcoming atmosphere is always guaranteed for the city's live music lovers, and indeed the monthly showcase has been an invaluable venue for local musicians to mix and network.
Doors open 8.30pm, admission is only £4.50, and there will be special drinks promos all night. SONI are always on the lookout for new Lisburn based acts to play the showcase - contact them on Facebook at www.facebook.com/soni.live.1, and you can also catch up with all of the Sounds of NI Radio Shows so far at www.soundcloud.com/philipmccarroll and www.audioboom.com/Lisburns98FM
