3 gigs for the Weekend in Dublin

Thinguma*jigsaw. And their saw.

While I shall be tucked in bed with a mug of lemon, honey and ginger close to hand, you may care to head out and check out these happenings…

Irish folkies United Bible Studies will be performing in The Shed tonight with some holy support from Thinguma*jigsaw, who are back in Dublin tonight after their hiatus in their native Norway for the last couple of months. Paper Cut & Wrecking Ball and Cian Nugent are also on the folk-tastic bill, with doors at 10pm and a cover charge of €7. The Shed can be found at 17-21 Foley Street in Dublin 1. So presumably, it’s not a shed then.

I haven’t heard the main act or the other two supports, but I did see Thinguma*jigsaw play a few months back in The Lower Deck when they released their album awakeinwhitechapel. It’s pure folk stuff, and the only other thing you really need to know is that the lady in this two-piece plays a saw. Yup. A saw.

Hey IndieHour…do you need some Lemsip from the shop?

Apparat will also be in Crawdaddy on Saturday night as part of POGO, with live visuals being brought along with him from Transforma Visuals. Also playing as part of POGO on the night are DJs Barry Redsetta, Eoin Cregan, Nic James, and Genie.

We featured Apparat‘s track Fractales (Pt. I) from his album Walls on the January nialler9 podcast, which you can find here. Tickets for the gig on Saturday night are €16, and there may be some available on the door on the night…

Sweaty people from Michigan, The Von Bondies

Now, you could go to see Dickie Rock on Sunday night in The Olympia. But I think I might have to go for The Von Bondies in The Village, with support from Stagger Lee and Fight Like Apes. That’s a great line-up for €19. I do hope I will have recovered from the flu by then, so I can catch this show.

Although after reading Totally Dublin’s interview with Dickie Rock in this month’s issue, it is kinda tempting to go see the old Miami Showband man in action. Did you know he’s 70? Holy stars.

Anyway, hope you have a good one, whatever you’re doing.

And Eoghan…I’m doing so badly on my blogger diet. Since your article, I seem to be getting fatter, not slimmer. Bah!
