TRAMLINE LIVE MONDAYS: Orchid Collective to Headline First Night

In association with Hot Press, TRAMLINE LIVE MONDAYS are to host some of Ireland's best underground musicians from January 15. First to enter the venue's spotlight, will be headliners Orchid Collective with support from Vulpynes and Jesse John Heffernan.

Get on down to the opening night of Tramline Live Mondays for a jam packed evening of music from Orchid Collective, Vulpynes and Jesse John Heffernan.

To quench your thirst and fill those bellies, there will be pizza from Tramline's custom built woodfired oven, along with an encyclopedic list of craft and draught beers at the bar. Better yet, you can get this pizza and pint for just a tenner.

Here's what to expect from Tramline Live Mondays' first lineup:

Orchid Collective

If you're a fan of Villagers, James Vincent McMorrow and Bon Iver, then you may already know of folk rockers Orchid Collective and their hearty harmonies. The boys have made a name for themselves by offering a bold new imagining of the indie genre and by relentlessly gigging throughout venues in Ireland.


Hailed for their stirring and motor driven live performances, the Punk two-piece have quickly gained a strong following in both the UK and Ireland. Expect low end riffs, snarling vocals and a visceral rhythm section.

Jesse John Heffernan

Heffernan is a fast-rising Dublin based singer and songwriter whose unique and uncompromising sound is set to make its mark on the industry. Inspired by legends like Sam Cooke, Van Morrison, Otis Redding and Marvin Gaye, Jesse John’s soulful vocals are rooted in his work as frontman for the Irish group The Animators and during his time studying at the BIMM music college.

The night will be MC'ed by Hot Press' own Stephanie Costello - and with more drinks deals to be announced, you're in for a lively evening.

Doors open 8pm | Admission: €5 | Pizza and Beer €10.
