Give and re­ceive at great Xmas gigs

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - MUSIC NEWS -

As Cliff Richard said, Christ­mas is a time for giv­ing and re­ceiv­ing – and that goes for a num­ber of gigs tak­ing place over the next week or two.

Next Thurs­day, the an­nual state.ie Mid­night Mass fundrais­ing gig takes place at Dublin’s Mer­can­tile from 8pm. Ske­locrats, The No­tas, Deaf Joe and Jen­nifer Evans will play. En­try is free, but gig-go­ers are en­cour­aged to throw a few euro into the do­na­tion bucket, with all pro­ceeds go­ing to the Pi­eta House char­ity.

Sweet Jane are head­lin­ing a char­ity gig to­mor­row as part of the Fin­gal Film Fes­ti­val in Swords, Co Dublin, where they’ll be joined by Crow Black Chicken, The Ra­dioac­tive Grandma, ON OFF and more for ¤5.

Mean­while, The But­ton Fac­tory’s Christ­mas Party is free (with no strings at­tached) next week­end. Kilkenny drum­mer and one-man-band RSAG will head­line a bill that also in­cludes Ocho and Plu­tonic Dust, fol­lowed by sets from Toby Kaar, Krys­tal Klear and Frank B on on Satur­day De­cem­ber 22nd.
