Stiff Little Fingers
It had been over 30 years, but finally in 2013 Jim Reilly and Henry Cluney got to play together again. 
Stiff Little Fingers is a name  that looms large in punk circles.  The first three studio albums-Inflammable Material,Nobodys Heroes and Go For It,are rightly regarded as classics of the genre.
Jim Reilly was the power behind the kit and Henry Cluney added the umph!
When Jim left the band in 1981 many thought that the heart of the band had gone.  The following albums just didnt come close to the "big Three" and the live gigs lacked something.
Henry and Jim reunited under the name XSLF, and now the power is back. Concentrating on the big albums only, their show has the energy and passion of the early days. Featuring Ave Tsarion on bass, once again they have a full Belfast band.
For a night of classic Stiff Little Fingers hits and a few surprises don't miss this event...
...the music the way it was meant to be.
Support Act:
Shock Treatment 21
The roots of Shock Treatment can be traced back to the mid 1970’s. The current line up of the band has Davy Treatment – guitar and vocals, John Rossi – bass and vocals, Dr. Keith McVeigh – keyboards and Gordie Walker – drums. 
Shock Treatment have played many local Belfast venues such as the Harp Bar and the Pound Club and even launched their own venue at the Bailey Bar which would later become the Teds Kool Kats Club. The band became firm favourites with music fans on the North Coast playing Spuds, Kellys and Beachcombers on a regular basis.
On June 13th 2014 the band released their debut album “The days of the Buckshee Bounce are nearly over” on Spit Records.

Difference between education and knowledge is now a redundant debate, today the method of teaching and the system through which people are educated are gaining more importance due to the emergence of new sources like televisions, internet, virtual class rooms, and many others.

So we do need to understand that we cannot spend our life in the light of some old principles which our parents used to teach us or guide us but we do need to be moderate with the changing environment.
