New line-up of new year gigs

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - News -

The Christ­mas sea­son may be the nadir when it comes to qual­ity live mu­sic but you can’t say the same about the be­gin­ning of 2008.

Once the qui­etest months of the year, Jan­uary and Fe­bru­ary were al­ready burst­ing at the seams with must-see gigs be­fore th­ese latest ad­di­tions were added to the mix.

Dan Le Sac vs Scroobius Pip, creators of Thou Shalt Al­ways Kill, are one of the first off the blocks, play­ing Dublin’s Craw­daddy on Jan­uary 18th.

One of 2008’s most in­trigu­ing prospects, Southend’s Th­ese New Pu­ri­tans, hit the same venue on Fe­bru­ary 20th.

New York singer-song­writer (and holder of a re­cent Ticket CD of the Week ac­co­lade) Jay­may plays up­stairs at Whe­lan’s in Dublin on Fe­bru­ary 11th.

And if you have just got a 2008 diary full of blank pages, you can put “The Breed­ers live in Vicar Street” on the space re­served for April 7th.
