Cork Gig Guide (5th June - 9th June)

The TDC sees Pink...

Neil Brogan's sun-drenched retro-rock project Sea Pinks makes its Triskel bow on Saturday evening with an appearance in the TDC. Brogan - who also happens to double as (drum)stick-slinger for lauded Belfast quartet Girls Names - and the surf-pop Sea Pinks sound could not have better timing with tracks from long players Dead Seas and the swell-seeking Freak Waves perfectly crafted to soundtrack the current Irish heatwave. Special guests Une Pipe - last seen live tearing up The Pavilion Bar as part of a G-Man Presents... showcase with a new EP on the way - are on opening duty.
