Weekly Cork Gig Guide: 29th October - 3rd November

Anais Mitchell - 3rd November
This week in Cork: Anais Mitchell, USA Nails, Jet Setter & more...

Those in need of a post-jazz jump, look no further than Anais Mitchell's first trip to Cork courtesy of Coughlan's on 3rd November. Having claimed #1 in the album of year for 2010 on this blog, it's fair to say I am both a fan and more than a little excited. Unfortunately, tickets were snapped up like sesame sticks as soon as they were announced. South Dakota songwriter Rachel Ries supports, and will also play a number of shows around county Cork in the days before. Expect lots of material from Ghost of a Gardener released earlier this year.

Also heads up Saturday which sees the return of multi-media gathering Quarter for a full day of talks and performances based again in Triskel TDC. The evening culminates with a performance from blog favourite North Side Drive who officially launches his EP Snow//Sky//Sea that same evening.

Also going down around town this week:
  • A single launch for 'Naivety' with local songwriter Jack O'Rourke in Coughlan's (Wednesday)
  • Noisy Londoners USA Nails team up with local scream-lords Terriers and Stanton's Grave in Fred Zeppelin's (Thursday)
  • New album from Barry Tierney also to be held in Coughlan's (Friday)
  • LATE ADDITION: Magic Pockets with late night tunes from Lisa Lemur & Niall Woof to follow in Gulpd (Friday)
  • Jet Setter and The Careers in The Crane Lane Theatre (Saturday
