Local band The Mackerel Eaters are searching for their inspiration and motivation in the cultural graveyard of ambition, Galway City. The lads’ lives revolve around music and fishing, (for gigs and mackerel!), but hedonism and hare-brained schemes override their art. Sure they’ve got soul, but they'd sell every screed of it for a gig! Desperation breeds desperate invention. The Mackerel Eaters serve up a slice of madness, mayhem and insightful storytelling, interwoven with superb musical interludes.
