You might remember that Midlake played Live at the Marquee a couple of years back, on a bill that also featured Grizzly Bear, Camera Obscura and what then were fledgling Villagers. The Texan five piece are returning to Cork on Tuesday, August 13, for a date in Cyprus Avenue. It’s been a while since last album The Courage Of Others, so expect to hear lots of new songs. Midlake will also be playing Galway’s Roisin Dubh on Monday, August 12, and Dolan’s Warehouse in Limerick on Wednesday, August 14. Back in Cork, it’s looking like a stellar week of gigs in Cyprus Avenue, with Midlake on the Tuesday, Swans on the Friday, and Low on the next Monday. Who needs festivals, eh? Tickets for Midlake cost €22.50 plus fees and can be purchased from the Old Oak or here.
