Cork Gig Guide: 8th July - 14th July

O Emperor
Pine For Your Loved Ones
In the pines, in the pines, where the sun always shines...

Cork-situated Deise quintet O Emperor rouse riotously from slumber with the release of the beguiling Vitreous, the band's psychedelic follow-up to 2010 début Hither Thither. Joined on the night by guttural garage rockers Grave Lanterns, the Waterford fivesome commandeer the Half Moon Theatre Friday evening for the record's official Leeside launch.

Those in the mood to hit the beach on Saturday, then look no further than Myrtleville. The annual Pile Lodge rock-a-thon welcomes Chirps, Hands Up Who Wants To Die and more for Pine For Your Loved Ones, the latest incarnation of the infamous Party In The Pines gatherings. For all the details click here.

Also going down around town this week:

Thursday: Elastic Sleep in The Pavilion Bar. Remember to bring your best brógs for this one. Shoegaze excellence moulded from the remnants of Agitate The Gravel and Terror Pop.
