Cork Gig Guide: 11th February - 17th February

Who's up for getting down and dirty...

It's all about The Pavilion this week as the Carey's Lane venue dominates the gig listings. The third annual Dirty Weekender serves up an eclectic plate with electro (Nialler9's Mmoths-headlined Friday), rock (Saturday: Rest's unveiling of new studio record I Hold The Wolf accompanied by Hope Is Noise and The Great Balloon Race) and even reggae (Sunday: Revelation Sound) palettes all catered for across a sprawling weekend kick-started by a DJ set by Toby Kaar in the downstairs bar on Thursday.
