Cork Gig Guide (10th June - 16th June)

John Blek & The Rats (Sat)
Feel Good Lost (Thurs)
A big week on Carey's Lane...

Cork visual visionaries Feel Good Lost celebrate their second anniversary in style on Thursday evening with masked beat-warrior Slow Magic, San Franciso chill crusaders Giraffage and Dublin dreamwave trio Slow Skies all converging on Cork for an evening of musical magic in The Pavilion. Dublin blogger Nialler9 is also in town, manning turntable duties to round the Thursday night off. See further down in the post for a chance to win tickets.

Later that week sees local Americana champions John Blek & The Rats officially unveil début full-length Leave Your Love at the Door in the same venue. This one's going to be as rowdy as it is brilliant so get in early to find a spot on Saturday night. Support comes in the capable hands of west Cork's LOWmountain, who are also touring a new record: DNA.
