Due to the surge in entries to this month's competition, it seems there is no doubt as to the gig of the week. A Winged Victory For The Sullen float into town ready to enchant all in attendance in the Half Moon on Wednesday night in what will be their first Irish appearance (as far as I know).
Later this week The G-Man blog will feature an interview with David Cantan from The Dying Seconds who team up with Cork's The David Nelligan Thing for the now weekly free show in The Pavilion on Carey's Lane. The latter will be gearing up for the weekend with an appearance in The Crane Lane Theatre on Tuesday night.
Other highlights for the week include those mad, ska-bustin' Naildrivers in Fred's on Saturday and electro-drone ordained Saint Yorda in The Pavilion as part of their weekly Sunday Sessions.
If you are one of those folk (usually me) who takes a while to get going during the early stages of the week why not pop into Plugd Records for a spot of jazz with the Matthew Halpin Trio upstairs in the Triskel Arts Centre.
