The amazing Girl Band were one of the acts affected by the closure of the Pavilion in Cork a couple weeks ago, but thankfully the gig has been rescheduled. Aisling and Caoilian, who used to work at the Pav, have formed the Southern Hospitality Board to put on gigs – and are doing a stellar job so far. Amen Dunes has been rehoused and now it’s been announced that Girl Band will play Cork on Saturday, October 18, at the TDC in the Triskel Arts Centre. Tickets are €8/€10 and available from Plugd. Special guests have yet to be announced but expect something good. Girl Band release their next single ‘De Bom Bom’ on Any Other City Records on September 1. They also play the Clonakilty International Guitar Festival a couple weeks later. Seeing Girl Band twice in a month is certainly looking like the best plan right now – they’re probably the best live band in the country right now.
