Music aficionados will already be aware that in 2011 the Belfast-based indie pop band runawayGO emerged as a force to be reckoned with. And now they are about to become a household name as they trail-blaze their way through the Irish music scene with heaving high-energy performances and an arsenal of dynamic music.

Fronted by joint-vocalists Dave Jackson and Fiona O’Kane, with Javed Love on drums, Chris Jackson on bass and James Lappin on guitar, the band’s early performances have received high accolades from reviewers describing them as “a rare spectacle” and “one of the best bands in the country”. See them while you can. AMA presents RunawayGo at the Nenagh Arts Centre on Saturday, June 9th at 9pm (doors open at 8pm). Admission: E10.

The Nenagh Film Club presents Drive, one of the finest films released in recent years, at the Nenagh Arts Centre on Thursday, May 24th at 8pm (admission E7). The 2011 American drama by Danish director Nicolas Winding Refn and starring Ryan Gosling has already been labelled a classic. Drive is another modern neo-noir with a tough, taciturn hero caught in a moral conundrum with some very bad men. However the propulsive nature of the film and the twists and turns of the storyline will leave the viewer in no doubt that this is a visceral entertainment of the highest order. Don’t miss it!
