The iconic Ballyfermot Rock School is hosting a showcase of their most promising talents, headlined by Callous Crows, in benefit of the Dublin Rape Crisis Centre on 16 February.
The Rock School Ballyfermot (BCFE) are set to hold a showcase on February 16 at the Workman's Club in support of the Dublin Rape Crisis Centre. The night will showcase their headline act Callous Crows, an emerging BCFE rock band, alongside Bullet Girl, TV People, Porridge and MYTH.
Guitar-driven Callous Crows are a two-piece band from the Kildare/Offaly area who have been making noise since 2015. Gritty vocals, thick rhythms, and winding guitar riffs are the calling cards of guitarist/vocalist Neil McDonnell and drummer Eimhin Murphy.
The event, run by the BCFE Event Management students, will be joined by past Ballyfermot Rock School students and also the Ballyfermot TV department. They have recently worked on the documentary for the Trouble Pilgrims Dark Shadows and Rust and will be there to capture the whole night as BCFE-In Aid Of RCC to promote the night and spread awareness on behalf of the Rape Crisis Centre.
Numerous Irish musicians have been sprouted from BCFE, including Damien Dempsey, Wallis Bird, Mundy, and more recently, Junior Brother and the band members of David Keenan.
Admission on the night will be €7 or €5 for students, although larger donations are welcome. Tickets can be purchased here.
