Royal Blood at the Olympia Theatre, Monday 9th/Tuesday 10th
One of the hottest bands on earth right now capitalise on their massive popularity by returning to play two dates at the Olympia just a few months after packing out the Academy. Despite just having the one (remarkably short) album, the band have established a reputation as an exceptional live act and recently won a Brit for Best British Band, beating the likes of Coldplay and One Direction. A brilliant band riding on the wave of huge success, and should deliver a cracking show
The Darkness at Whelan’s, Sunday 8th
British rockers The Darkness are landing into Whelan’s this Sunday to road test some new tracks and a new drummer. The band are playing several dates in smaller venues around the country, but Whelan’s always proves to be a wonderful venue, and the band’s mammoth sound should lead to a mind-blowing show in this intimate venue.
Worth Checking Out:
Walking On Cars at the Olympia Theatre, Wednesday 11th
Some quality Irish indie pop will be heading your way in the form of Kerry’s Walking On Cars next Wednesday, and with a album being slated for release at some point this year, it’s a good time to catch a glance at a band brimming with potential.
This Is The Kit at the Workman’s Club, Friday 6th
Folk outfit This Is The Kit are set to unveil a album later on this year produced by The National’s Aaron Dessner. If their soft, heartfelt style evident on their previous output is anything to go on, then it should be well worth a sneak peak at their newest offerings.
Vann Music at The Button Factory, Saturday 7th
The powerful, synth-driven, hook-heavy New Wave group hit up the Button Factory this weekend to launch their newest EP ‘Running,’ ideal for anyone seeking a blast of synth-pop goodness.
