Some weekend for gigs this weekend. For the punks Cockney Rejects and Old Firm Casuals are on Friday with the Casualties on Saturday. For the noiseniks the Messtethics are on Sunday which will be great to see Joe Lally and brendan Canty from Fugazi playing once more together in Dublin. Saturday has the fascinating Spook of the thirteenth lock performing Lockout in Unitarian Church

The Spook of the Thirteenth Lock will perform Lockout in its entirety one last time at Dublin’s Unitarian Church on Saturday, February 2nd, before beginning work on their next album.

“In their transformation into this hydra of guitars, what The Spook Of The Thirteenth Lock have done with ‘Lockout’ is create a sonically literate, textured and diverse ensemble piece that moves deftly through genres and time signatures, enriching its characters and enlivening an era.”
Golden Plec

“Amidst the wide-spanning and ambitious storytelling, however, The Spook of the Thirteenth Lock’s aptitude as musicians should not be overlooked. Pairing the soundtrack – be it the shimmer of scene-setting guitar, the trad-folk rumble of the ordinary man’s tale, the light, toe-tappy cadence of a gentle interlude or Blighe’s stoic vocal as he becomes another character in the fascinating narrative, they prove themselves masterful musical storytellers. From start to finish, a remarkable piece of work.” The Irish Times
