Another Info Dump, with my usual opinions of what is good and worth seeing...
In chronological order...
Cork Arts Theatre have a table quiz in support of the Cork Simon Community. On at 8.30pm with loads of spot prizes, it's €30 for a table of 4. And yes it's a plug since I'm involved with the theatre, but it's my blog and I can plug what I like. Feel free to show up, pay and take part.
plays The Lodge in Mallow. If you are in search of a chilled and intimate evening with near whispered songs, then this Kildare man is for you.
Ex-pat Dubliners Stand
are doing several gigs around Ireland in support of their new album. In Cork they show up at the Half Moon.
may be a Dublin band, but since the recording sessions for their debut album Starlight Drive took them to Schull, they've been coming across all laid-back and have obviously brought some of those West Cork vibes to the album. They return to Cork, playing in The Lobby.
In the Sirius Arts Centre in Cobh you'll find Luka Bloom
I can't remember if La Rocca
got to play with Jet
in their repeat attempt to play Cork. Anyway, expect Irish rock with a few twists.
Go West young rocker. La Rocca
do a repeat performance in their "Glory Pieces" tour in Connolly’s of Leap.
Saturday also sees Aziz Ibrahim
. This former guitarist with The Stone Roses and Ian Brown collaborator plays the Lobby.
Apparently... Bryan Flynn TheatriX Ltd. presents The Magic of the Musicals Cork Opera House. I don't have any details on this so check with the Opera House if interested.
Roesy (aka Alan Roe, not to be confused with fellow Birr man Mundy), plays the Sirius Arts Centre in Cobh.
play De Barras in Clonakilty and have a few songs to download from here
get one in Club One. Not exactly the place you'd expect to see rockers, but there you go. Expect to see their new single for sale at the door.
Asian Dub Foundation Sound System. Half Moon. 8pm.
If you know about them, you'll probably want to be there.
plays the Sirius Arts Centre in Cobh. I'll be honest, I've yet to make it to a single gig in the Sirius.
I know that they aren't meant to be easy listening, but The Devlins
remind me of a male version of the Corrs. Anyway, The Devlins are in the Half Moon.
September 8 and 9
returns Cork (most of her album was written in West Cork) this time in An Crúiscín Lán. Any idea if this is a return visit?
The Kittser, David Kitt
gets to the Vault. Feels like he's been away for a while... I'm guessing that there is new material to try out again.
