Stiff Little Fingers at The Academy Dublin
Rock out with Stiff Little Fingers at The Academy on 23 August!
Punk rock band Stiff Little Fingers were formed in 1977 in Belfast, Ireland. Along with the likes of the Clash, Sex Pistols, The Jam, Buzzcocks, Undertones, Sham 69, Stranglers, et al - Stiff Little Fingers were at the forefront of the punk movement. They wrote initially about their own lives and growing up at the height of The Troubles in Northern Ireland.
In 1979 they became the first band ever to hit the UK top 20 album charts on an independent label with their debut Inflammable Material. The album chronicles the band's anger and frustration at 'the Troubles' in Northern Ireland, and calls on youth to create their own reality.
After many studio albums and countless tours, Stiff Little Fingers find themselves more in demand than ever. They are currently working on a new album, with their latest offering No Going Back being released in March 2014.
Get ready for the biggest punk rock event of the month! Tickets cost €25 and are available via Ticketmaster on 8 March.
