Cork Gig Guide (20th May - 26th May)

TITK in the TDC...

With second record Wriggle Out The Restless set for an international release courtesy of the Dessner's (i.e. Aaron and Bryce of The National) Brassland label, Paris-based alternative folkies This Is The Kit catch the ferry to Ireland for a tour that will include a date in Cork's Triskel Arts Centre TDC. The Saturday night show will also see Dublin's Biggles Flys Again return to Leeside as special guests for Sharon Van Etten's "favourite new artist". Songwriter, singer and all-round TITK mastermind Kate Stables and co. made their first appearance on the now internationally-renowned music show Other Voices in December with the performance set to be screened on RTE in July. Anyone looking to buy tickets on the night (€8) note that they are available for a cut-price €5 including booking fee over on
