There are 2 debuts at Shortts this week; firstly the hottest new act on the local live scene, BabyVegas, launch a new monthly Thursday night residency; and then Freddy & Chez of the Backroad Smokers Club launch a bi-monthly DJ residency on Friday. Plus there are appearances by two of Shortts favourite bands, Supersoul Machine and Saucebirds, and we say goodbye to Terrace legend, Jay Ru, who plays his last Saturday night set after 6 years of memorable nights.



This 3 piece of well known faces on the local scene, took the roof off the Market Bar at their debut gig last month. They were immediately signed up for a monthly residency at Shortts and they are guaranteed to shake up your Thursday night out on the town with a 2 hour set of alternative rock and pop classics.

There will be loads of Oasis, Blur, Ocean Colour Scene, Kaiser Chiefs, Stereophonics, Arctic Monkeys and all the rest, played by some of Waterford’s finest musicians.
