Ireland's greatest pop star(s) tear Tengu a new one on March 28th.
The shapeshifting mind at the helm of personas including (but not limited to) Oscar Benso, Yung Gowl, Craic Boi Mental and Dudewithswag has been steadily stirring the Irish interwebs since 2017. The time has finally arrived for his Dublin debut. Premiering his Cork City Anthems LP along with Whip Girl - this is one for the history books.
"There’s something incredibly punk about Craic Boi Mental.
