First Irish show in 8 years
VICAR ST, DUBLIN
FRIDAY 3rd JULY
New York dance punk band, The Rapture, will perform their first Irish show in 8 years, in Vicar St on Friday 3rd July.
Having reformed last year after a 5 year hiatus, The Rapture are back and coming to Dublin!
Alongside labelmates and peers LCD Soundsystem, The Rapture defined the punk-electro crossover sound that came out of New York on DFA Records in the mid-2000s. Their classic debut album Echoes was voted best album of 2006 by Pitchfork and number 2 by NME.
Tickets cost EU34.50 and are on sale from 9am Friday 7th February from www.ticketmaster.ie
‘The Rapture still maintains a flailing energy and enthusiasm that most of the other dance punk bands could only fake.’ Pitchfork
The Vicar Street show will see them playing tracks from all three albums, and feature original band members Luke Jenner, Vito Roccoforte and Gabriel Andruzzi.
Please note this will be a late evening show with The Rapture due onstage around 11pm. Doors 9pm with support acts to be announced.
‘The Rapture, back after nearly a decade away, was downright ferocious in scratchy disco-punk tunes like “Get Myself Into It” and “House of Jealous Lovers,” the latter of which helped launch the New York rock revival that also gave us the Strokes and Vampire Weekend’ LA Times
