It sure was a feast last week and while there’s some respite we still have enough to keep the punks happy this week. Laura Stevenson was in the excellent Bomb The Music Industry (also featured the equally excellent Jeff Rosenstock). This is a bit more moody than the singalong punk tunes of her old band but still a very interesting sound. Laura is in the Workmans Club on Wednesday. The following night THEE UFO play upstairs in Whelans. The band released some songs on bandcamp last week and played Friday. We were too busy organising our We Shall Overcome Festival to notice that gig and only now when we can catch a breath can we follow the Garage psych that is THEE UFO. On Friday the Scuntz are down from northern ireland to play with Swedish punks Existenz and Irish madsters The Nilz. If you like your musi more haunting and slow then Brigid Mae Power’s beautiful folk tunes could be the ones for you in Bello Bar. Maybe you’ve been lucky to nab a ticket for Pillow Queens in Vicar Street where the excellent arxx are also on the bill.
