Let me try just get my head around this. Hitting Sziget in Budapest too, mind you.
No disrespect to the indiginous indie bands(Cheap Freaks this Thursday), this is more to see the expensiver nights out. In fact, I'm gona make a seperate list for them after.
In the next few months, off the top of my head, the following are playing Dublin:
Eagles of Death Metal
The Cribs(new Johnny Marr edition)
Joan as Policewoman
Electric Picnic (and all that entails)
Hard Working Class Heroes
Times New Viking
Mumford and Sons
Yo La Tengo
(Will put proper dates, order on this soon)
Further afield; YYYs in Belfast Aug 26
and of course; Republic of Luas. A Republic of Loos Tribue Band.
