Vicar Street, Thomas Street, The Liberties, Dublin 8
The 502s return to Dublin for a headline show at Vicar St. on 31st Oct.
Known for their viral music videos on TikTok and raucous live shows, their new album finds the 6-piece indie folk band revelling in the thrills and joys of living their dreams, yet resilient in the face of heartbreak and relentless upheaval which comes with the passing of time. Led by earnest banjo-strumming songwriter Ed Isola, The 502s are a band of brothers whose sound has received critical acclaim as celebratory, wholesome, and thoroughly life-affirming.
The 502s provide the soundtrack for adventure, and that’s exactly the spirit behind the recent viral TikTok trend of their song “Just A Little While”. While the song was released in October 2021 as the lead-off to their album Could It Get Better Than This, it exploded in popularity in December, coinciding with the end of the fall school semester.
