A Place To Bury Strangers at The Workman’s, Tuesday 31st
Loud would probably be one way to describe A Place To Bury Strangers. Noisy would be another. A Place To Bury Strangers are as dangerous and volatile as their name suggests, and this show at The Workman’s should be a glorious evening of distortion drenched, feedback frenzied noise. Earplugs recommended for this one.
Courtney Barnett at Whelan’s, Saturday 4th
With quick tongue and sharp wit ,Australian singer-songwriter Courtney Barnett’s debut album, released just last week, is a wonderful collection of interessting tales and wry observations. Her loose and ramshackle guitar playing is the ideal accompaniment to her deadpan delivery, and her easy charm will hopefully translate to her live show.
Worth Checking Out:
Ghostpoet at the Button Factory, Wednesday 1st
It’s hard trying to pin down exactly what style of music Ghostpoet plays, but the British vocalist manages to bridge the gap between rap and indie in some interesting ways. His newest album is an enjoyable listen, and the intimate yet spacious Button Factory should ideal for Ghostpoet to express himself in his own uniquely passionate way.
Otherkin at the Grand Social, Thursday 2nd
Sprawling, chaotic indie rockers hit up the Grand Social this April Fool’s Day to showcase off their newest single. The band’s half-grunge, half-indie sound combined with an energetic stage presence should ensure a quality show.
Sting and Paul Simon at the 3Arena, Tuesday 7th
Two legendary musicians come together as an unlikely duo, but with two sperate and equally remarkable careers to plunder a setlist from, the tunes at least should be top-notch. Should be interesting to see how this one pans out.
