The Castle Late Night Venue // 27 Oct // 22:00
The Scratch are a band that don’t seem to fit in anywhere, but have proven to fit in everywhere. Starting out with just acoustic guitars and a wooden box, the band created an immediate buzz in their hometown of Dublin, Ireland. Seemingly incapable of keeping themselves boxed in to one singular genre, they meander intentionally around heavy metal, Irish folk music, stadium rock, and post punk. Constantly evolving both creatively and sonically, never taking themselves as individuals too seriously while always putting their souls into the music. They have won the hearts of anyone that has experienced their live shows, which have garnered a cult-like following in Ireland, the UK and most recently mainland Europe and North America.
