Meteor Choice Music Prize live @ Vicar Street, Dublin (€22.50) featuring Damien Dempsey (left) and Wallis Bird.
A chance to see nine of the ten acts nominated for Irish album of the year 2012 play a few songs each topped by the announcement of the winner of a €10k novelty cheque. One of the few gigs you can put a bet down on proceedings. Always hard to predict a winner, Delorentos’ album Little Sparks are current favourites but Windings would be a good bet. Would love to see Mumblin Deaf Ro win it. There’s a very strong possibility that Julie Feeney will be wearing a novelty hat and bewildering audience members with her performance.
