Introducing Smithwick’s Soundtrack Series’!


Smithwick’s are collaborating with two of Ireland’s most sought-after music acts, BARQ and Le Galaxie, for a special series of gigs which will see the bands perform their contemporary take on two of the most memorable soundtracks of all time: Pulp Fiction and Apocalypse Now.

The music behind a movie can be the difference between a great movie and a cult classic – with the soundtrack living on long after the credits have rolled! Without a doubt, the soundtrack from Apocalypse Now continues to echo long after the movie’s famous opening sequence just as Pulp Fiction’s mixtape lives beyond that iconic dance scene.

The series is kicking off in Whelan’s on the 13th of October and rolling out in some of Ireland’s favourite music venues across Dublin, Cork, Belfast, Limerick and Sligo throughout October and November.
