There’s a few cool gigs coming up in Dublin in the next couple of weeks – apart from the mammoth list we already covered.
Scottish outfit Biffy Clyro are going to be playing in The Olympia on 29th October. Tickets are €28 on ticketmaster. I’ve gotten into these guys a bit recently and they’re really good. I haven’t gotten their newest album yet, Only Revolutions, but its on my to get list.
Delorentos are going to be playing in Whelan’s the night after Biffy – 30th October. Tickets are €20 on ticketmaster. These Dublin-based boys were The Clink‘s weekend tunage two weeks ago – check out the very good video to S.E.C.R.E.T. here.
Calvin Harris is hitting The Academy on 6th Nov. Tickets are on sale now on ticketmaster for €30.
Placebo are also going to playing in The Olympia. Tickets are €44.90 and €49.90 on ticketmaster for the gigs on 15th and 16th Dec. I really loved Placebo’s early stuff – I remember seeing the MTV Vertebrae ad years ago and loving Nancy Boy.
Placebo are going to be supported by Silversun Pickups – who are also really good and worth going to see on their own.
Fight Like Apes are going to be playing in The Academy on 18th Dec. Tickets are €19.50 on ticketmaster.
Moving into the new year, Wolfmother have just announced a nationwide tour. It starts in Dublin on 13th January, 2010 in The Olympia. Tickets are going on sale this Friday for €25 on ticketmaster, which is the same day their second album is released, and its called Cosmic Egg. Get details on the full tour over on state.ie.
I’ve saved the best ’til last – and its just a coincide that this list is in chronological order. The mighty Dave Matthews Band are coming to The o2, Dublin on 3rd March, 2010. I’m super excited about this gig. DMB are a great live band – I’ve never seen them, but they have loads of live albums so I’ve heard them play live plenty. Tickets go on sale this Friday, priced between €54.80 and €65.70 on ticketmaster.
