Weekly Cork Gig Guide: 24th February - 2nd March 2015


This week in Cork: Joan Shelley, Dott, Patrick Freeman and more.

A certain talented trio i.e. Louisville songstress Joan Shelley, Pennsylvanian folkie Vikesh Kapoor and local tale-spinner John Blek take the annual The Certain Three tour to Coughlan's on Sunday evening for the most melodic edition of the long-running series to date.

Weezer fans take note of Friday as a number of excellent Irish bands team up for a tribute night featuring songs from the indie godfathers' Pinkerton and Blue Album. Performing in Cyprus Avenue will be blog favourites windings, Dott and more. Should be fun! (UPDATE:  POSTPONED)

Saturday is all about Limerick doom-rock Iron Mountain who mesh their uilleann pipes and guitars in The Crane Lane Theatre early that evening.
