Weekly Cork Gig Guide: 3rd-9th February 2015

Phronesis (Triskel)
Altered Hours (Quarter Block Party)
This week in Cork...

Goodbye cruel January and welcome cool February. Quarter Block Party is the main focus in what we will call the first official gig week of 2015. Enjoy the Countdown to the big first day here. Elsewhere, Phronesis return to the Triskel (Thursday) and Villagers do likewise, if but a little further afield on that very same evening. Otherwise take a gander at The Great Balloon Race upstairs in The Oliver Plunkett as part of a new regular session courtesy of the thankfully relocated Crowleys Musician Centre.
