Owensie plays the Cork Community PrintShop on Lower Oliver Plunkett Street (behind the bus station) at 3pm on Sunday. It’s a free gig but donations are welcome. Support comes from the amazing At Last An Atlas, who I 1) didn’t realise were still going and 2) didn’t know were now based in Cork. What a lovely way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

amen dunes crop

Amen Dunes was one of the acts hit by the Pavilion’s closure a couple of weeks ago. But Aisling and Caoilian, both familiar faces to any frequenters of the Pav, have found a new home for the New York artist. Damon McMahon will now play the Black Mariah, on the top floor of the Triskel, on Thuesday, September 25. Tickets are €10 and available from Plugd. Facebook event page.


subways crop

Cyprus Avenue also have a couple of tasty gigs coming up. No, not the Leaving Cert UV party next week, but We Were Promised Jetpacks and the Subways. The Scottish four piece play Cyprus Av on Thursday, September 11. Tickets are €15 and can be bought here.

The Subways, meanwhile, play Cyprus Avenue on Monday, October 13. Tickets are also €15 and can be bought here. They’ve been recording a new album recently and also been politically involved but as long as they play ‘Oh Yeah’ then everything will be fantastic.



Finally, Pine For Your Loved Ones returns to Pine Lodge, Myrtleville, on Saturday, September 13. G-Man announced that local legends Ten Past Seven will be headlining the event, with the full lineup released tomorrow, Thursday. They usually sort out a return bus to get out to the venue so NO EXCUSES. Here’s what PFYLO13 was like.
