What a week it promises to be. Australian Art noise punks Tropical FuckStorm take to Whelans stage on Monday, Sheer Mag mix a 70s rock sound with a punk ethos and are in the Grand Social on Tuesday while DC post punkers Priests are in the same venue on Wednesday. Also on Wednesday Primal noise rockers Imperial Wax are in Soundhouse, and uk based Irish band when young have their breezy pop punk tunes in the button factory the following night. Also that night Dublin scenesters Glimmerman are launching their new album, Here I Stand in Bello Bar in Thursday and Tower records on Saturday at 1. The record is out on Greyslate Records which many will know as the label that put out the first flexihead 7”

If you can only get to one gig make sure it’s the hope for homeless benefit in the underground on Saturday. Alive in a Dublin are putting on a lot of great punk nights lately and this will be a cracker and all for a good cause too. Lee Harvey’s, Trouble Pilgrims and Dubtones make a great lune up for the evening. Unfortunately there’s a clash with jogging in the Bello bar that night but I will be in the underground showing solidarity with the punks. Finally Sunday sees hip hop outfit Oshun in the Grand Social finishing off a very promising week all round.
