As the title of this post might suggest, I’m quite the fan of Belfast/Dublin band Girls Names. They ply a relatively well-worn route, that early 1980s doom-laden pop path. But they leave a trail behind that proves so infectious that you want to walk up and down the path again and again. Though it took […]

Owensie, Hidden Highways, Peter Delaney, Crayonsmith, Elk, Jogging, Windings, giveamanakick (!!!). Wow. That is some lineup, and a reminder why Out On A Limb is the best record label in Ireland. So the details: In Bourke’s Bar on Catherine Street, Limerick, on Saturday, August 10, Owensie, Hidden Highways and Peter Delaney will play an afternoon […]

I was sad to hear that Hello Moon are splitting up after they release their next EP. It’s called An Elephant Pining and, over the course of six songs, displays everything that I liked about the band – it’s so carefree, so happy and infectious. Sadly it’s not being released on CD or record, but […]

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 […]

It’s been a while now since Tony Wright left And So I Watch You From Afar. His new project, VerseChorusVerse, has endeared many listeners though, with whimsical tales spun around an acoustic guitar. It’s as far removed from his previous guise as possible. VerseChorusVerse, along with as yet unannounced support, will be taking to the […]

The Mighty Stef is a band that just keeps on trucking, one that is just always reliable in both output and live show. And they’re about to step things up this year. The band is just back from Los Angeles, where they were recording an album at 11AD in Hollywood with Alain Johannes. He’s done […]

Nialler9 brought news late last night that Azealia Banks is coming back to Ireland for the first time in what will be 18 months in June. However, he cannot confirm that she won’t cancel, like she did with her on-again, off-again Electric Picnic slot last September. @tpoeblog @azealiabanks I can’t promise that. — Nialler9 (@Nialler9) […]

This gig was only announced last week. Short turnaround to let all of Cork know they should come out and see two of the best rock bands in Ireland play together on the one stage. The mighty Enemies are headlining Cyprus Avenue on Sunday, February 24, and we can expect to hear ‘Indian Summer’, their […]

Having guested on a new Solar Bears track and a rerecorded Mmoths song, Keep Shelly In Athens have become rather familiar to Irish music fans of late. They’re coming over for a few Irish dates in May, including in the Pavilion, Cork, to celebrate Feel Good Lost’s first birthday (poster after the jump), but for […]

Prior to arriving at the Pavilion for the sold-out second gig of a 20-date European tour for Clap Your Hands Say Yeah I had been reading this article about what it apparently takes to be a rock star: $100,000 in your first year as a band could see you achieve goals such as being mentored […]
