Stress!! are a bunch of Galway dudes who've been promoting Irish and international acts in Galway for the past three years. Originally based in the beautiful and sorely missed De Burgos, a 16th Century wine cellar that fell foul of arsehole neighbours and the dreaded fire officer. They've moved recently to Kelly's on Bridge St. and have hosted an impressive succession of gigs over the past few weeks including a Nick Cave tribute night with local boy Vertigo Smyth and Gareth Dickson, guitarist with Vashti Bunyan, the Homelights Tour with Adrian Crowley, Alisdair Roberts and James Yorkston and this Saturday, Adebisi Shank with support from C!ties.

On top of promoting local and Irish talents like Vince MacMahon DJ's, So Cow, Junior 85 and And So I Watched You From Afar they've hosted a DJ Set from Jeffrey Dammers of the Specials, LA's Daedelus and UK Hip Hop magicians Dan Le Sac Vs. Scroobius Pip TWICE!!
