Punk band The Outcasts tour marks Good Vibrations release

Published 12/03/2013

The Outcasts – the bad boys of the Northern Ireland punk scene in the late 70s – have announced a mini-tour to coincide with the release of Good Vibrations.

The award-winning movie is a heartfelt biopic about 'Godfather of Punk' Terri Hooley who signed the band to his label in 1978.

Frontman Greg Cowan said: "It is amazing that a band that started in 1977 ... would be now in 2013 announcing an Irish tour, including their first gig in Derry/Londonderry since 1981.

"As well as being excited about performing at different venues across Ireland we are so proud to be part of a major movie release."

The first gig will be in Sandinos in Londonderry on March 22, followed by a second on April 5 at Auntie Annie's Porterhouse in Belfast.
