Gig: KVX bid farewell

The times they are a changin in the Cork music scene. On July 2nd The Quad bar closed its doors for the last time marking a body blow to the artists and music lovers of langerland. Just over a month later Cork stalwarts KVX will play their last gig. It may seem strange to refer to a group of 20/21 year olds as stalwarts but KVX have formed part of the fabric of the Cork scene for the past six years. For as long as I can recall going to gigs in the various venues across the city there always seemed to be some KVX representation. With guitarist Ciara heading to China this split was always kind of inevitable, I guess many of us hoped it might just mark a hiatus. Whatever happens in the future, Saturday presents us with one last chance to see Leah, Daire, Niamh, Ciara and Eimear as KVX, a chance not to be missed. Just as the Quad left us with the mother of all parties, we owe it to KVX to celebrate the great times they’ve given us over the past six years in style.

And is if THAT wasn’t enough, sher arn’t Hope is Noise, Overhead the Albatross and Agitate the Gravel performing too.

Saturday 7th, The Pavillion, doors 9.00pm, entry €3.
