Alphastates very last gig!

Thursday February 18 will be a momentous night at Whelans main venue, when Alphastates play their very last gig.

They will be supported on the night by The DC Experiment.

Alphastates generated serious acclaim for both their live shows and their two albums, not least for Catherine Dowling’s dynamic vocals that had her compared to Shirley Manson and Beth Gibbons.

Their determination and commitment were evident in their decision to scrap the entire recording of their second album Human Nature and start again from scratch. When it emerged, the Hot Press review said it confirmed Alphastates as “a major creative force, an inventive respite from blog-standard guitar-driven formulaic rock....

Singer Catherine Dowling's presence throughout is a revelation, evoking memories of Shirley Manson and Beth Gibbons, but with a flexibility that challenges both.”
