This week we tiptoe across the threshold into December with Cork's live music scene building to a 2016 peak. David Kitt's in town, Beardyman's brought his beats (St. Luke's and Cyprus Avenue respectively, both Friday), Lisa O'Neill returns down south (read a recent chat with Lisa here), Hypnotic Brass Ensemble complete their annual Irish pilgrimage (Coughlan's and St. Luke's respectively, both Saturday) and Malojian is one of many set to show off a shiny new album. Oh and Cork's own alt-rockers The Vincent(s) are back after a long hiatus.

Also going down around town this week:
  • Sachal Vasandan & His All Star New York Quartet in Crane Lane (Tuesday)
