Byrne, baby, Byrne! The Valves onstage

Local rock stars The Valves are taking to the outdoor stage of Kavanaghs this weekend.

The Valves consist of Terry Byrne on guitar and vocals, Aiden O’Reilly on bass and vocals and Dick Duff on drums and vocals.

The Valves play a very mixed bag of covers with a quirky, energetic feel. From classic surf guitar to recent Indie rock ,spanning decades of influences, they cover artists as diverse as The Kinks, The Beatles, Del Shannon, The Venturers, The Pixies, Nirvana, The Breeders and Arcade Fire to name but a few.

Their approach is to keep true to the energy of the music, paying fond tribute to the songs that inspired them become musicians. They take a simplistic approach to the way they play so that the essence of the songs come across with raw energy.

The Valves play at 10pm this Saturday, February 17.
