Workman’s celebrates their tenth birthday with ten free gigs, two years later

Words: Ellen Kenny

Workman’s are inviting a host of music guests to celebrate ten years since opening, two years after the fact.

Ten years of indie boys chatting you up in the smoking area. Ten years of random celebrity spottings by the bar. Workman’s are celebrating ten years of their fine services. Well, they’re actually twelve years old, but who’s counting?

Workman’s turned ten at the height of the pandemic, so two years later, the club are finally marking the occasion. Throughout August, the club will hold their Workman’s 10 (plus 2) series, featuring ten free gigs to celebrate their birthday.

Starting off the birth month is Kynsy. Created by Ciara Lindsay, Kynsy is a solo synth-drenched multi-instrument project. She will be performing in Workman’s Main Room on August 4.

Irish indie folk band Villagers will also perform in the Main Room on August 7. If you missed their Iveagh Garden performance, you’re just in luck.


Other August gigs include rising Afro-folksoul artist Loah, who will play the Workman’s Cellar on August 13. Acclaimed hip-hop artist Nealo will perform in the Main Room on August 18.

The birthday celebrations will finish up on August 26 with a three-act gig, featuring lo-fi beats from Lowkick, soul pop from Fizzy Orange and hip hop from Curtisy.

Since its opening in 2010, The Workman’s Club have hosted musicians like Maverick Sabre, Fontaines D.C., Imelda May, and Scroobius Pip. From their Jimi Hendrix filmshoot with Andre 3000 to their special DJ performance from Cillian Murphy, Workman’s have really made a name for themselves these last ten (plus two) years.
