Eric13 is to play a show at Monroe’s tomorrow night, December 1st.
Hailing from the States, Eric13 was the singer and lead guitarist for The Sex Slaves, a loud, unadulterated rock band, and has since recorded and toured with Combichrist. He has released two acoustic solo rock albums.
Darren and Tracey Quinn spoke about his live shows for planetmosh.com, “Eric said he likes to write simple songs his biggest influences being John Lennon and Hank Williams Senior, but he wanted to play some rockers and ‘Sssssay What!’ had Daz and Tracy singing along to the chorus ‘What Do You Say’. A request then came for Johnny Cash and we got ‘Ring of Fire’ which was a popular one which everyone seemed to know and sing along to. It ended with Eric singing the word ‘frire’ in a low vocal tone and him saying ‘good call! Excellent song’”.
The songs are all based on true events: outlaw country, rock and roll, soul and blues. He says, “If I sing it, I lived it.”
Doors open at 8pm, with tickets priced at €15/ €12 online at Monroe’s
