Further proof that De La Soul’s maxim that everyone wants to be a DJ was on the money: unnamed members of Bloc Party hit the decks at the POD, Dublin on March 23rd.
Some must-see additions to the capital city’s gigroll: The Notwist (Button Factory, June 7th), Ted Leo & The Pharmacists (Crawdaddy, April 13th), Man Man (Whelan’s, May 11th), Why? (Whelan’s, April 26th) and Damon & Naomi (Whelan’s, June 25th).
Our outdoor gig of the summer? That could well be Prince at Croke Park playing the greatest hits one last time (allegedly) on June 16th.
