The Heads of State bound for Strabane GC

THIS Saturday sees Donegal band The Heads of State play their first Strabane gig since making the final of Sounds Like Summer 2012.

Providing a Mumford and Son-esque folk sound mixed with indie rock and jazz, the Heads of State are by far one of the finest unsigned live acts anywhere in Ireland today.

On Saturday night they take centre stage at Strabane Golf Club, their first local performance since being pipped by Gerard i2 to this year’s Sounds Like Summer title.

Responsible for bringing The Heads of State back to Tyrone is Tommy Forbes. He said it was real coup to have secured the services of such an electrifying live act.

“I’m delighted that the lads have agreed to play at the Golf Club. To secure the booking of such a powerful band is huge for us and hopefully it’s well supported.

“Having seen them at the Alley Theatre earlier this year I can honestly say they provide one heck of a live experience. It should be great night of original material and covers and I’m really looking forward to it,” said Tommy.

The Heads of State will light up the Golf Club from 11pm this Saturday and entry is a steal at just £4.
