The last of the September boogie
Throw the last of your summer glad rags on and rock the dance floor, rock the dance floor. Autumn is here and we have the low-down on the best gigs til then.
Hilary Woods – “Night” @ Smock Alley Theatre (Boys School)
Acclaimed Dublin songwriter Hilary Woods will launch her new EP with a performance that combines her sleepy, meandering dream-pop with some of her own film work. Show starts at 9:45pm, running 3 nights in a row from the 18th.
Maud in Cahoots in concert @ Smock Alley Theatre
The Dublin sisters with a knack for dressing otherwise upbeat and optimistic songs in a wistful glaze will launch their new single in Smock Alley as part of the 2014 Dublin Fringe. Doors 9:30pm.
Cloud Castle Lake @ Whelan’s
Cloud Castle Lake will play Whelan’s with Maria Somerville, to follow the Irish release of their debut EP “Dandelion” on the 19th. Their single “Sync”, a wonderfully textured 5 minutes and 19 seconds of lush horns and hypnotic melisma, has been reviewed by Pitchfork, NME and Stereogum, to name but a few. This is their first Dublin show “since god knows” so get your tickets early. Doors 8pm.
Girl Band + Cian Nugent & the Cosmos @ The Button Factory
Golly, what an unmissable opportunity to see some extremely progressive Irish acts perform live, and for only thirteen euros! Cian Nugent & the Cosmos make wonderful raga-like psychedelic folk. Girl Band make psychotic noise-rock danceable. Doors 19:30.
