What: a 3 piece working man’s “Mod Rock and Roll” band.
Where: West Midlands UK.
When: We’re bringing them in – Whelan’s, Dublin Feb 28th.
Why: Because they’re worth it and we think Dublin needs to hear them. That’s the why :)
Ear marked as ones to watch for 2016, Casual Agenda have recently been signed to The Animal Farm record label in London. They have gained great support fast and have headlined venues all over the UK including The Cavern (Liverpool), Camden Rock (London), The O2 Academy (Birmingham) and The Kasbash (Coventry) whilst supporting established signed artists (most recently Bruce Foxton’s From The Jam, November 21st).
With their self-titled EP getting air play on local radio, the BBC and in Canada this band from the off are on course to becoming one of the best mod bands of our time. Upcoming? Indeed they are. Have the staying power? Yes, we certainly think so.
Feb 28th, get out of the house and go see a new UK mod rock band at Whelan’s. We don’t think you’ll be disappointed. In fact, we are sure of it.
