The wonderful Born Ruffians have announced a solo headliner at Whelan's next month.

The Canadian trio - who released debut album 'Red, Yellow and Blue' earlier this year - will play Whelan's on November 14th.

Irish BR fans will, in fact, have two helpings of the band during November, as they've also been announced as support to Foals, when the Oxford band play the Ambassador on November 27th. Both bands have something in common - they've both made performance cameos on E4 series 'Skins'.

Tickets for the Whelan's gig - which falls under the Heineken Green Synergy banner - are €15 and on sale now.

Tickets for the Foals gig are €23 and still on sale from usual outlets.
