Rubberbandits return to Róisín Dubh this May

page image Róisín Dubh audiences need no introduction to The Rubberbandits. Distinctive for the plastic bag masks they always wear, musical duo Blindboy Boat Club and Mr. Chrome started their career at the turn of the millennium as prank phone callers in their native Limerick, and moved into comedy hip-hop a few years later. In October 2010 they began a weekly slot on RTE 2’s Republic of Telly – and released their debut single ‘Horse Outside’, which became a viral internet hit (more than 14.5 million Youtube views) and then a genuine chart success. The following year C4 commissioned them for a series of Comedy Blaps – online shorts – and they were named Best Irish Act at the awards. The Rubberbandits also won best music and variety act at the 2012 Chortle Awards. Recently signed to MTV USA, they’ll be ripping up the Róisín Dubh with a very rowdy Saturday night show. Leave your horses outside! Saturday 27th May 8:30pm, €22.50 / €20 online
