Gig announcements: Múm, No Age, Midlake and more.

Múm for Button Factory on 19th November
Giggedy giggedy. Ahem...

Time for a bit of a catch up on the gigs news front.

Múm to Dublin
With new record Smilewound on the way, Icelandic aural angels Múm will play Dublin's Button Factory. This is very, very good news. The date is 19th November. The price is €17.50. Now listen to their whistle duet with Kylie. Yes. That Kylie.


Midlake and Villagers for Sligo Live
Having just wrapped up an Irish tour, Midlake have revealed a return to Ireland is on the cards pronto as the Denton, Texans confirm an appearance at Sligo Live alongside Villagers and Imelda May. More on Conor O'Brien and co. below. For further details on the October festival in Connacht visit www.sligolive.ie.

Villagers for Vicar Street
Following two sold-out shows in the Olympia back in March, Conor O'Brien and Villagers have announced a Christmas date in Vicar Street. Booked for 17th December, the gig will serve as a perfect finale to a year that has seen the Dublin band top the charts with {Awayland}, the follow-up to the Choice Music Prize-nominated Becoming A Jackal. Tickets are priced at €25 and go on sale from the usuals at 9am on Friday, 23rd August.
