BLOOD OR WHISKEY - Alan Confrey Memorial Gig

A memorial gig will be held for Alan Confrey of Blood or Whiskey on Friday 30th June at Dublin's Voodoo Lounge, with proceeds from the show going to The Irish Heart Foundation. Joining Blood or Whiskey for the gig, will be special guests Whipping Boy, the legendary Dublin alternative rock band, who will perform an acoustic set on the night.

Alan Confrey died suddenly of a heart attack on 23rd of March 2006 aged 33, the day after Blood or Whiskey completed a UK tour supporting Stiff Little Fingers.

"Alan was a poet, a story teller well versed in Irish history, a talented musician, and a tattoo artist, he is sadly missed by all his friends and family, and the night will be a celebration of his life that he lived at 100%" - Toxic Promotions.

Delivering a punk rock in a traditional Irish music guise for over 10 years, with influences ranging from The Clash to The Pogues, Blood or Whiskey are widely regarded to have been the first and finest post-Pogues band. Three tracks from their most recent album, the highly rated 'Ca$hed out on Culture', can be streamed from their myspace, including the intensely spirited and rousing punk song 'Poxy Pub'.
