Competion: Win tickets to Jape in Cork

The last time I caught electro-pop redneck Jape he was bopping about in the Spiegeltent - see here for full review - and, to be perfectly honest, I did quite a bit of bopping myself! Admittedly, it was a lot warmer then but I am sure the perfectly good heating in The Pav on February 16th will not hamper the potential bopability (probably a word) of Richie Egan and co.'s first visit to Cork of the new year.

2012 has begun with a bang with a performance at Groningen's annual showcase Eurosonic already under the belt and the post Valentine gig on Carey's Lane will see the Dublin trio bursting out tracks from the 2008 Choice Music Prize winning Ritual and last year's Ocean Of Frequency and - as the very leading title of this post suggests - I have two tickets to give away with the latest competition coming courtesy of The Pavilion on Carey's Lane.

To win tickets simply send an email to with :

- the subject containing the words 'Jape'
- your full name
- your mobile number
- your favourite biscuits

The winner will be announced on Monday, February 13th. Closing date is 11.59pm (or 23.59) on Sunday, February 12th.

Thanks to everyone (including the Opera House) for the great response to last month's A Winged Victory... competition.

- Jape plays The Pavilion on Thursday, February 16th
- Tickets are priced at €10 and can be purchased at the venue or via here
- Ocean Of Frequency can be picked up in Plugd in Cork (or any decent music store) or online here
