Joyce Manor & Martha
The Workman’s Club, Dublin 8pm ¤16 theworkmansclub.com
California band Joyce Manor – so named after an apartment complex that co-founder guitarist Barry Johnson, regularly walked past – began as an acoustic duo, but quickly realised there was a punk/pop band wedged between the melodies and instruments. From 2011 onwards, they have released four albums that have marked them out as ones to keep a close eye on. Co-headliners Martha, meanwhile, is a UK power pop act with cracking songs ready to rock your socks off. Irish band The Winter Passing open the show.
