Weekly Cork Gig Guide: 20th-26th January 2015

The Vespertine Quintet
This week in Cork..

Hold tight people, the barren escape doors of January are nearly in sight, so close I can almost taste the neon glow of the "EXIT" sign on my tongue. Some shows have started popping up here and there though including the fascinating collaboration between west Cork collective The Vespertine Quintet and Liam Ó'Maonlaí in Coughlan's on Monday evening (and De Barra's on Sunday).
