Good Name proudly present Shrug Life + Naoise Roo this November in Tengu.

Shrug Life:
Dublin's Shrug Life started as the product of rubbish jobs, failed romance and political apathy. Known for their wry humour and frenetic indie-rock, the group supported and toured with songwriting heroes Jeffrey Lewis and So Cow before releasing their debut album ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ in October 2017, via Seattle based Jigsaw Records. The album was hailed by the Irish Times for it's "sharp lyrics that poke and prod at the clamour of modern life", while the Thin Air named it in their 15 best albums of the year stating "they are impossibly infectious and improbably good". Recently Shrug Life has played supports for international acts Spiral Stairs, Hers, The Beths, Alex Lahey and Pip Blom, while putting the finishing touches on their second album. Following on from the recent critically acclaimed single ‘Strangers’ (September 2019), the band show a lighter side with a tongue in cheek take on Albert Hammond’s ‘You’re Such A Good Looking Woman' obviously best known in Ireland as a massive hit for Joe Dolan. This will be released on November 8th ahead of their performance at Tengu.

Naoise Roo:
Roo's music is known for dealing with themes of heartbreak, desire and female identity and stylistically ranges from powerfully emotional indie rock to delicate ambient electronic, visceral hard grunge to wryly flirtatious chanson – while still remaining strikingly unique.
After a brief hiatus from the Irish music scene, Naoise Roo has made a triumphant return with her latest single release 'Black Hole', which is just the tip of the iceberg for what lies ahead for this iconic artist.
