Gig Guide

Live Guide – Gigs in Dublin – May 2014

Future-Islands

Some good new additions to the upcoming gigs in Dublin. Slayer will keep more than a few of my friends happy, with some old skool heavy metal coming to town!

Future Island have announced a second date at Vicar street on Nov 3rd as the 2nd sold out in seconds. When did they get so big exactly? I saw them play support to Dan Deacon a few years ago, and they are good fun live.

There’s also lots of odd ball small events around the city, that we’re so fond of. Check out the full May Gig Guide below…
