Hoolahan will be supporting The Vines & 78 Saab in Sydney at The Metro on Sunday 29 September. The show sold out weeks ago, so if you don’t have a ticket you can meet us downstairs at Timezone and challenge us to a game of Air Hockey!
Hoolahan are putting the finishing touches to their second album. Catch them playing some of their new tunes at the Roma Room (@ the the Metro in Sydney) on Friday 7th May with Sarah Dougher (USA) and Origami (Melbourne).
“Sarah Dougher’s voice puts on masks, creating a myriad of roles. Imagine DUSTY SPRINGFIELD singing LUCINDA WILLIAMS songs over the music of THE SMITHS.”
Hoolahan step out after months of training to battle the Sydney gridlock with 2 shows during the Olympics. These will be Hoolahan’s last shows for 2000 as various members of the band are heading off overseas to find themselves or alternatively lose themselves…
