Cork Gig Guide: 7th-13th March


This week in Cork: Bitch Falcon, Ger Wolfe, Cat Meat & more...
Bitch Falcon descend from their Dublin perch to shred up Cork with their rock talons as the trio visit Connolly's on Friday before swooping into Cyprus Avenue on Saturday. Horse support for the latter date so this one's going to be loud.


Earlier in the week Gulpd host a International Women's Day with a whole host of special guests (including Cork-based musicians Ellen "ELLLL" King and Rosyln Steer) taking turns behind the decks from 6pm. London-based alt-country group Cat Meat, featuring Sultans of Ping's Ian Olney, are in town for a couple of mid-week shows. See more details here.

Those looking to break free of the city bounds there are a number of options including the inimitable folk stylings of Ger Wolfe (Cobh, Friday), the bombastic brass of Stomptown Brass (Connolly's, Saturday) and folk-punk Hamell on Trial (Levis', Sunday.)


Also going down around town this week:
  • The Prairie Jaywalkers continue a new bluegrass session in Coughlan's (Tuesday)
  • Zolala Klub #6 gathers in in Siopa Gan Ainm (Wednesday)
  • Cork Improvised Music Club in Gulpd (Thursday)
  • Ó Bhéal - Poetry, Films and Music in The Long Valley (Monday)
For a day-by-day breakdown of gigs taking place in both Cork city and county over the next three weeks see below.
