A Tower of strength for a decade-and-a-half
Anyone for a good news story from the music retail sector? While the Tower Records brand may have disappeared from US streets in the last few years, the Dublin store trading under that name celebrates 15 years of business in the city in September.
The Wicklow Street shop will be marking its landmark birthday with a host of local talent performing in-stores during the month.
The birthday series kicks off on September 13 with The Blizzards, Jenny Evans, Carly Sings and Lisa Hannigan.
Others appearing during the month are Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin (16), Pugwash (17), Chequerboard and Rollers/Sparkers (23), The Coronas (24), Cowboy X and Ham Sandwich (25) and We Should Be Dead (26).
