Gig of the Week this week is PILOTLIGHT @ THE BUTTON FACTORY for their new album “The Post War Musical” launch party. We feel this gig will be an absolute cracker from old friends of the site. Pilotlight played PLECAID in The Sugar Club back when we ran a charity gig for the Tsunami victims under the guise of former name, Polar.

Pilotlight before their switch to london were one of the busiest bands around ireland and their absense from the dublin gigging scene has been a gaping hole for us. So were hoping the time away has set them up for a real comeback and that the album is nothing short of the quality we expect from them.

Definitely pop along to this one, These guys deserve your support!

If thats not up your alley (and i ask you, why the hell not!) we also recognise that Airbourne are playing The Academy that night for €19.50. Last time these guys were here they rocked the foundations of whelans. These guys are one of the bands whom may lay claim to the title of next top rock band. If i could be there, i would, there’s just too much that night to make it. However i have no doubt this gig will be an absolute rocker and it runs a close second for gig of the week.
