After winning the Choice Music Prize for 2008 last week for his album Ritual, Richie Egan AKA Jape has announced that he will play The Button Factory on May 1st.

Jape is also nominated for Best Irish Male at this year's Meteor Awards, taking place at the RDS on St. Patrick's Day. Famously energetic, and equally entertaining between tracks, Jape’s live performance is not to be missed.

Tickets for Jape at The Button Factory are priced €17 from ticketmaster and usual outlets.
