A Friday Night in September

At the Empire Music Hall, Belfast

Story by Filly Campbell February 10th, 2016

I’m always excited when Paddy Nash & The Happy Enchiladas announce a Belfast show, and this one was was already shaping up to be something special as it was a twofer, with Paddy Nash & The Happy Enchiladas and Malojian on the bill. What’s more they’re playing The Empire; arguably my favourite live music venue.

Malojian

Malojian kicked off the evening. I’d only seen them play once before but I knew this was going to be good.

Bath Tub Blues, a track of their new album Southlands has been stuck in my head ever since.
