CG Presents: POLY-MATH

Common Grounds Collective are delighted to announce the first in a new series of gigs taking place in Maynooth over the coming months. Headlining this special event are Poly-Math

Poly-Math make densely layered, off kilter instrumental Math-Rock that leans on the heavier elements of the genre reminiscent of early Battles, The Mars Volta, and ASIWYFA. Polymath are all glitchy, off-kilter guitars and shifting time signatures

Support on the night comes from Maynooth's own TurboJazzGrunge outfit Witches' Rave and TV.AD.
