Seneca, Irish alt rock band plays Pocatello

Who: Seneca
What: Alt. rock band from Limerick, Ireland
Where: Portneuf Valley Brewing, Pocatello, ID - map
When: Friday, June 12, 2009, 8:30pm - 11:00pm

The Indie Alt-Rock band Seneca from Limerick, Ireland will be in concert in the pub at Portneuf Valley Brewing from 8:30pm to 11pm.

In the world of rock, Limerick is best known for the Cranberries, formed in the early '90's. The Cranberries rose to international fame with "Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can't We?," which sold over five million copies in the United States. The group was one of the most successful rock acts of the '90s and sold over 14.5 million albums in the United States alone.

By all counts, Limerick's next hope of being plotted on the rock map is Seneca.

Seneca formed in 2005, and shortly thereafter won the Limerick heat of the Jack Daniels Hardest Working Band competition. Then they won the 2006 University of Limerick ~ Battle of the Bands competition.

By the end of 2007, Seneca's debut single "Smile" entered the Irish Charts in its first week at 33 climbing to 27.

In 2008, Seneca released their debut album "Sweeter Than Burbon" to rave reviews, and the second single, "Clarity," went straight in at 19 in the Irish charts.

Seneca kicked off their U.S. tour in Nov 2008, taking in the west coast and mid west area, including a jam session with Bernie Worrell (Parliament Funkadelic and former Talking Heads Keyboardist), and a few east coast dates are scheduled for later this summer.
