Weekly Cork Gig Guide: 12th-18th August

This week in Cork: Belle & Sebastian satellite show, Nothing New Under The Sun and more..

This week's big draw blends both the mediums of film and music as Belle & Sebastian front-man Stuart Murdoch's directorial début is beamed into Triskel Christchurch by satellite, to be followed by a live screening of his band's live show in Edinburgh. For the full details see yesterday's post here.

  • Alt-country newbies Nothing New Under The Sun visit De Barra's for a sitting room session (Wednesday)
  • Another new addition to the Cork music scene: If You Discover A Fire in The Roundy (Thursday)
  • Tír na nÓg in Coughlan's (Friday)
