Cork Gig Guide: 7th January-13th January

'Tis very sleepy still...

The January lull stretches into the middle of the month as we struggle with the monotony and less chocolatey realities of "normality". On the verge of a début release, The Vincents introduce their cross-dressing selves to 2013 with a date on Carey's Lane as The Pavilion restart their fine selection of free Saturday night shows. The same location plays host to Ennis elecro mage MynameisjOhn who drives south for a Sunday Hobo Convention.

For something a little more intimate, hit The Roundy on Wednesday for Crawford Art Student/experimental electro-noodler Mark Buckeridge's stint on Castle Street.

The Vincents in The Pavilion on Saturday, 12th January.

*Film fans see Triskel Arts Centre's listings for the week over on the official website here.
