Oppenheimer announce two Spring & Airbrake shows

Local indie-pop duo Oppenheimer have announced two shows at the Spring & Airbrake on September 22.

Rocky and Shaun will play an all-ages matinee show in the afternoon, followed by an evening show later that night.

Oppenheimer are signed to the Bar/None Records label in New York and released their gorgeous eponymous debut album in June 2006. The duo combined a number of varying influences, including Joyzipper and Brian Eno, to create a selection of luscious and melodic indie-pop cuts.

Since then, Oppenheimer have seen their music used in a variety of different places, including Channel 4's 'Ugly Betty' series, adverts for Nike and Fujifilm and Sydney Fashion Week.

The band have also been touring constantly since the album's release, traversing Europe and the USA, alongside the likes of Hot Chip, Get Cape, Wear Cape, Fly and Architecture in Helsinki.

Oppenheimer are currently in the studio in Belfast, laying down tracks for their second album, which is due to be released in Autumn/Winter 2007.

Described as "pop disco for electro punks" by 'Drowned In Sound' and "like a fizzing flying saucer scanning Planet Haribo" by NME, you can check out what all the fuss is about when Oppenheimer come to the Spring & Airbrake on September 22.

Doors for Oppenheimer's matinee show at the Spring & Airbrake on September 22 open at 3pm. Admission is £4 and no alcohol will be served as this is an all-ages show.

Doors for the evening gig open at 8:30pm and admission is £6.

Special guests have yet to be announced.

Tickets are available now from Katy Daly's, Virgin and all usual Ticketmaster outlets. For credit card bookings and further information contact: 0870 243 4455 or book online at: www.ticketmaster.ie.
