Californian pop-metal parody band Ugly Kid Joe are bringing their funk-infused tantrum rock to Dublin’s Whelan's for a night of oddball headbanging you won’t soon forget.

Made famous with the release of their 1990s tongue-in-cheek release Everything About You, Ugly Kid Joe have made a name for themselves on the rock circuit for refusing to conform to just one style.

Their West Coast sensibilities run deep, favouring the funny over the funereal, but don’t let that fool you; they’re a talented crew, from the jazz-funk bass stylings of Cordell Crockett to Mark Davis’ pounding drums.

After their 1997 split, the band members continued to play in various alternative and metal bands, but it was their 2010 reunion that has fans grinning from ear to ear and ready to slam dance.
