The Murder Capital are nearly getting the same praise as Fontaines DC these days and they are bringing their noisy post punk stuff to Vicar Street on Thursday. Three nights later the same venue sees the return of Sleater Kinney. We use the word legend with great frequency in the 21st Century but Sleater Kinney can lay some claim to that word for their presence in influencing women to get out and play music. Along with Bikini Kill, Sleater Kinney have been leaders in a riot grrl movement that still needs leaders. I wrote about Carrie Brownsteins book a while back – why not try and read it before Sunday. Gigi of the week is no less influential trailblazers Trouble Pilgrims. Better known as being 3/4 of the radiators the Trouble Pilgrims take the songs to a new level of country and have an all ages gig on Sunday afternoon. That gives you a chance to catch then AND Sleater Kinney. If not that then pop along to Liberty Hall on Saturday and hear what Stiff records legend Dave Robinson has to say about the record label, the records and the era of that band.
