With a slew of great events going on this weekend, including the amazing line-up at the Wilmore 9 Festival, it’s going to be a hard choice to decided where to spend your precious weekend party time. Gallagher’s in Long Beach is just off of Broadway and has live music on a fairly regular schedule and this Friday night, August 2nd is going to be one for the books! Two fun Long Beach bands Dublin Public and Pepperbox Lullaby will be playing at the popular Irish music venue so get our your dancin’ shoes and your party hats!

dp_poster_080213Pepperbox Lullaby is the newly formed bluegrass project of local singer/songwriter Eddie Booze. He has assembled a lively bunch that play banjo, fiddle, upright bass, washboard and more. Their style is somewhat similar to bands like The Lumineers or local band Sawtooth, but while they lack the percussion they certainly make up for it in toe-tappin’ fun!

Dublin Public has been laying down the Irish inspired traditionals and covers for a few years now playing all the popular Irish pubs around Long Beach. Think Flogging Molly with all acoustic instruments and a flair for getting the crowd involved in their beer & whiskey soaked shows and there you have Dublin Public.
