A festival’s worth of bands will rock the rafters of Lethean this weekend, with a rock night planned for Sunday featuring the best in local music.

Before that, on Friday, October 21, Hullaballoo will kick off at 10pm.

This two-piece acoustic band, fronted by vocalist Rachael Taylor Fawsitt and guitarist Sean Murphy, have a rich and varied playlist including the likes of Otis Redding, Alabama Shakes, Blondie, Bill Withers, Norah Jones, Amy Winehouse, Lily Allen, Lisa Hannigan, and many more.

Then on Saturday, newly formed Portlaoise band Apestar take to the stage at 10.30pm.

With Eugene Deegan on vocals, Jerry Deegan on guitar, Adrian Robinson on guitar, Liam Cahall on base and Benny Dargan on drums, the band boast an impressive setlist from Alice in Chains, Pixies and Pearl Jam and everything in between. This Saturday will be their first full debut on stage and it promises to be a good one.
