Make that two gigs.
On either side of the Liffey.
Friday February 27: Homebeat : Chequerboard & His New Atlas @ MART, Rathmines, Dublin 6 (€10/€12)
Saturday February 28: A4Sounds presents: Cal Folger Day, Rivers & Crows, Bitch Falcon @ Bleeker Street Café, Upper Dorset Street, (9pm, €10)
Two independently-run gigs of decent Irish music, both just outside the city centre: Homebeat’s MART show featuring soulful upcomer His New Atlas and the ambient electronic guitar style of Chequerboard. Over on Dorset Street the next night, A4 Sounds are putting on grungy rock band Bitch Falcon [above performing Syncope], American-born Dublin based folk singer Cal Folger Day and alt-folk band Rivers And Crows.
