Back in the mists of time (2020) Treehouse Live emerged as an essential online series shining a bright light on the far-too-often neglected North West scene.

This year, the series returns for its highly-anticipated second season, shot and recorded by the tight-knit Treehouse team in an undisclosed location by the breathtaking beach of Rossnowlagh on the coast of South Donegal.

Over the next while, the team will be drip-feeding some wonderful live performances from the series featuring artists spanning the North West and a little further afield. In the weeks to come, you can expect episodes featuring Donegal acts Neptune M. and SlowPlaceLikeHome, Sligo’s Cantinita, Dundalk’s Larry and Peggy Trundle from Galway. Do the right thing and subscribe to the Treehouse Live YouTube page to stay in the loop.

Ahead of that, we’re delighted to premiere S201 in the form of a typically searing, 25-minute performance by Dublin post-punk trio Nerves. Check that out below.

In other Treehouse-related news, the team have also been busy behind the scenes curating a brand new, in-person live series at the Kicking Donkey in Burdoran. Set to feature some of the island’s very best acts throughout the year, the series will be sponsored by Lough Gill brewing company.
