Hugely influential to the current wave of indie-punk and emo revival, math-tinged emo outfit American Football come to Ireland to play the Button Factory on September 4.
American Football formed in 1997 from members of Cap'n Jazz, and other star players of the scene at the time, releasing only one eponymous EP & album before splitting in 2000 due to members no longer living in the same city. Its reputation organically spread over the ensuing two decades, leading ultimately to their first UK shows and reunion in 2014 & 2015. They released their second album in 2016.
Tickets are available from Ticketmaster, priced at €25. Doors open at 7.30pm.
