Venue
Date / Time
8:15pm Thursday

Wild Youth are a four-piece who stormed the Spotify Viral Charts and held the #1 spot for two weeks with their first single. With influences ranging from Imagine Dragons, to The XX, The Script, and The 1975, they play a melodic brand of pop-rock with electronic touches. After a freak accident left Conor O’Donohoe, songwriter and keyboards, with a prolonged period of rehabilitation he took up the guitar to pass the time. His new passion caused him to shift his focus from college and sports to composing songs in his shed with childhood best friend Dave Whelan, singer. With the recruitment of guitarist Edward Porter and drummer Callum McAdam, Conor found two musicians that could breathe new life into the songs he had composed. The four then locked themselves away for a year writing new songs and developing their sound. In 2017, they emerged with “All or Nothing”, which amassed over half a million Spotify streams.
