Lowdown on QBP '16...
The year may still have three weeks to run but Monday night was all about the new calendar year - more specifically February 5th-7th - as Quarter Block Party revealed details behind the programme for their second year on the block. Taking place across multiple venues on Cork's North and South Main Streets, the second edition of QBP16 will feature The Spook of the Thirteenth Lock performing Lockout for the first time outside of Dublin, the growling grunge of Bitch Falcon, blues-folk courtesy of Wexford brothers Basciville, the howling hardcore of Horse, the bass-tones of Chicago-based singer Daniel Knox and so much more.
