The Firrenes - live at the Voodoo Rooms

From soaring indie rock anthems to burlesque-inspired cabaret numbers, The Firrenes (it rhymes with "beans") are a melodic, song-based rock band from Edinburgh who know how to put on a show. This concert introduces a new band lineup and will feature brand new songs, plus old favourites from the album Door Too Wide. One or two classic numbers from the British and American songbook will be thrown in for good measure. A varied and fun-packed evening of music, not to be missed.
