Weekend Gig Highlights
Ane Brun - Vicar Street
Norwegian born, Swedish based Ane Brun released her second single 'Worship' from her recent, highly acclaimed album It All Starts With One at the beginning of the month. The song, a duet with fellow Scandinavian Jose Gonzalez, is one of the highlights of an album which has been the recipient of high praise.
TrocaireLive - The Grand Social
Fred, Katie Kim and The Hot Sprockets lead the charge on Saturday night for TrocaireLive in The Grand Social, placing a sportlight on Trocaire's fundraising efforts across the globe. Three great acts and all for a good cause? How could you NOT go?!
The Magnetic Fields - Olympia Theatre
The Magnetic Fields have long been one of the most enigmatic bands around and, in Stephen Merritt, have a true master craftsman at their helm. Saturday night's show in the Olympia will be a stunner meaning that, as you'd expect, tickets are like gold dust.
Bombay Bicycle Club - Olympia Theatre
English rockers Bombay Bicycle Club return to our shores for a show on Monday night in The Olympia, having recently been seen (well, about a year ago) delivering a stonker of a set at the inaugural Forbidden Fruit festival in Kilmainham. In that year, things have gone from good to great for the London quartet. Expect great things on Monday night.
Will Stratton and Paleo Double Header - The Grand Social
American singer songwriters play their debut Irish show. Sufjan Stevens has played on Stratton's albums and he has been described as "Sufjan Stevens fingerpicked by Nick Drake" while Paleo is an off the wall touring junkie who holds a world record for writing 365 songs in one year. Support comes from Lisa McLaughlin.
