Such considerate people. Helping, they say, the afflicted since 1990, Northern Ireland’s Therapy? have undergone a few changes in their time, but none so different as exchanging electric for acoustic. Metal festival gigs notwithstanding, the band’s Wood & Wire tour has been up and running since last summer, and such is its success that it has been extended. Further Irish dates next week include Cyprus Avenue, Cork (Friday April 28), Roisin Dubh, Galway (Saturday April 29), and Dolan’s, Limerick (Sunday, April 30).
