The Boom Boom Room
A veritable fusion of blues, folk, country, jazz, indie and rock…

The Pornographic Left are an 8-piece group spawned in the wild west coast of Clare. Since their inception in 2001, they have played numerous venues throughout Ireland including the Triskel Arts Centre, Cork, the Voodoo Lounge, Dublin, Dolans, Limerick and DeBurgos, Galway – as well as having had several international gigs, such as the 666 Bar, Buenos Aires and Le Caveau des Artistes, Paris.
Their innovative sound is aided by a plethora of instruments including cello, mandolin and banjo, as well as striking vocal harmonies and intelligent lyrics.
