Joe McMahon

IT'S a great mix of talent from Great Britain coming through SAV on their way back from Florida’s annual punk rock fete, Fest. A mix of punk and folk, there’s something for everyone.

You may know Joe McMahon from Boston/RVA band Smoke or Fire. By himself, McMahon creates lovely acoustic folk music laden with vulnerability and his strong, scuffed-up vocals.

This tour marks Ducking Punches’ first trip to the United States, so catch them while you can; the Norwich, England band spin a raw kind of up-tempo folk.

Belfast, Ireland’s Empty Lungs claim to be too punk for the indie kids and too tuneful for the punks, and you gotta love it. Theirs is a huge, emotionally raw sound that fans of The Gaslight Anthem, Hot Water Music, and early emo will enjoy.

Punk poet Billy Liar isn’t to be missed; with captivating lyrics and a fierce attack, the hard-touring solo artist will command the entire room with just a voice and acoustic guitar.
