Vyvienne Long, The Last Tycoons, Rob Smith and Sweet Jane all on the bill
The gig is the brainchild of Dublin indie musician Rob Smith. "I just felt I had to do something," Smith says, "and I thought to myself I may aswell put on a good show, raise some cash and have a super night in the process."
The bands will all be performing special acoustic sets, with stand up comedy from Aidan Bishop and Shane Langan.
Admission is €10 with all profits go to Oxfam Ireland to help aid in Haiti.
Doors are 8pm.
The show will presented by Near FM's Jacqui Carroll.
