Good news today if a) you're an Aslan fan and b) are at a loss for something to do on the eve of Paddy's Day.

Your problem is solved with the news that Christy Dignam and co. will be playing the Olympia Theatre on March 16th.

With the Dublin band's two Vicar Street gigs at Christmas selling out, you might want to make sure that you're in the virtual queue for Olympia tickets when they go on sale this Friday at 10am from usual outlets.

They're €28 plus booking fee (standing) and €30 plus booking fee (seated).
