Times like this I wish I was back in Ireland for a bit – with the start of all the festival announcements out of the way there seems to be a lot of good standalone gigs coming up in the coming few months also.
My pick of the bunch:
- Fenech-Soler are playing Crawdaddy this Friday 16th April. Tickets are only €8, defo not one to miss. Get your tickets here.
- Bit of a clash, Stornoway are playing Crawdaddy on Friday also, tickets €14
- Mystery Jets are playing The Academy Sat 17th April – tickets are €18.50.
- LCD Soundsystem play Tripod Tues 20th April – tickets a slightly steep €39.50
- Surfer Blood @ The Academy, Fri 30th April – tickets are €15, buy them here
- Florence and the Machine @ The Olympia 2nd and 3rd May (sold out tho)
- Flight of the Conchords @ The Olympia 5th and 6th May, tickets are €39.20
- Marina and the Diamonds @ Tripod 27th May, tickets are €19
- Kele (Bloc Party) plays dates in Limerick, Cork, Belfast & Dublin in May
- You Say Party, We Say Die! play The Academy 2 on Sat 5th June, tickets are €15
- The Middle East play The Sugar Club on 26th June, tickets on sale this Thursday
That should be more than enough to keep gig going needs in order. Gutted I’m missing the Marina and the Diamonds date – judging from the video of her new tour visuals that she released yere in for a treat.
