A welcome return to the Open Mic!

This Tuesday the 18th, the beloved Loft Venue returns for its newest and grooviest open mic yet in the Maynooth Music Academy.

Common Grounds are delighted to be collaborating with the Loft to organise this special night.  The Loft Venue has been instrumental in the formation of numerous bands around Maynooth through their encouragement of original music and poetry, and also greatly inspired the formation of this Collective.

Admission is €5 in on the night, bring your own beer, and if you wish to perform message The Loft Venue on their facebook page!

See you on Tuesday to check out Maynooth's Open Mic's newest home!


Dublin based electronic promoters Wriggle have released their first compilation. The mix features 13 new tracks from some of the very best Ireland has to offer, including Shriekin', Wastefellow, and Auxiliary Phoenix. Wriggle will be launching the compilation with a bang tonight in the Soundhouse, Dublin! Listen to the full mix below with bandcamp, and be sure to check out Wriggles facebook page.
