TC Costello with Suckin’ Diesel at The Lamb Surbiton

TC COSTELLO- back at The Lamb again for the 4th time Irish-American multi-instrumentalist TC is as likely to play a centuries-old Korean love song as a Dead Kennedys cover. His original songs, based on world music but with punk intensity, are often humorous , sometimes political, but always fun… and without exception, his songs go well with beer!
SUCKIN’ DIESEL- the new traditional Irish music group headed by Brendan the lead singer from local Celtic-Punk favourites The Lagan. Featuring yer man himself and anyone else he can round up in the meantime. If that sounds a bit ramshackle then maybe so but it’s all the better for it.

All happening on Monday 17th June live at the best boozer in the area The Lamb, 73 Brighton Road, Surbiton, Kingston upon Thames KT6 5NF. Just a couple of minutes walk from Surbiton station which is only 20 minutes from Waterloo. Live music begins at 8pm and ends at 11pm. Entrance is **FREE** you lucky devil’s so you can spend more on the lovely beer on sale at The Lamb.

Swedish Celtic-Punk! SIR REG live in Camden

Sir Reg is an energetic six piece from Sweden fronted by Irishman Brendan Sheehy on vocals, who left his home-town of Dublin to come to Sweden to fulfil his dream: to put together the most amazing band possible.

With songs about everything from the issues of modern day society to finding the right bar on a Saturday night, combined with strong melodies and explosive live shows, SIR REG have made a name for themselves in the Celtic punk and rock scene.

Last years release ‘The Underdogs’ (2018) deals with the struggles and fighting of the ordinary men and women, to make their voice heard and their opinions count, whilst not losing their spirit and ability to enjoy the simpler things in life, like hanging out with friends at their favourite bar on a Saturday night.
