Picture This have blown up in the past year, playing huge sets at last year’s Electric Picnic, this year’s Longitude festival and are set to play the 3Arena in November. A huge amount of success for two lads from Athy who only started making music together 2 years ago.
They announced yesterday through their social media channels that they would be playing a secret gig somewhere in Dublin, before announcing it would in fact be in The Grand Social. Fans had to get down to The Grand Social, as entry was being given on a first come, first served basis. The lucky fans then had to pay just €15, and prove they were over 18 before the gig started at 7pm.
The announcement saw hundreds of fans flock to the venue, with many disappointed as they were too late to get in. Until they were surprised by the Jimmy and Ryan who came outside the venue, casually got up on a bench and sang a few tunes for their fans. It looked amazing.

And if that wasn’t enough, the inside of the intimate gig looked like something fans would never forget either. With the duo posting a pic on their Facebook page looking like they’d had a brilliant, sweaty time. Fans looked like they might have enjoyed the gig too.
