OTR will be hosting a gig next month at the Hard Working Class Heroes festival.

On The Record Presents will take place at the Twisted Pepper (Middle Abbey Street) on Saturday October 17.

Acts playing on the night are Valerie Francis, Hunter-Gatherer, The Spook Of The Thirteenth Lock, Cities, Kyon, Yes Cadets, The Dying Seconds and The Holy Roman Army. They’re just eight of the some 99 acts playing this year’s festival. Running order and stage times to follow nearer the date.

A weekend ticket for HWCH costs €40, while you can also purchase a per-night ticket for €18.50 which will get you into all six HWCH venues on any given night. You can purchase the tickets from each venue on the night, the HWCH box-office at Filmbase or at tickets.ie (additional charges apply).

Aside from the bands, the monthly Banter discussion on pop culture will also take place in the venue on the night. “Meet the new media cats” will see Niall Byrne (Nialler9 blog, State magazine and the Irish Independent’s Day & Night magazine) and Una Mullally (UnaRocks, the Sunday Tribune and Soundcheck) joining me to poke around in the Venn diagram between blogs, Twitter and the established media. That discussion begins in the upstairs room at 8.30pm and admission to it is free.
