Gig of the fortnight is... Thinguma*jigsaw

WilcoWhere and When?
Joinery Gallery, Dublin - 06/10

Why?
Gigs here by Norway's finest gothic folk duo have understandably become far less regular ever since the members of Thinguma*jigsaw stopped living here.  This will in act be the pair's first Irish gig since February and really should not be missed if possible.  Support on the night comes from Sport Murphy, Arlt and the wonderful Peter Delaney.

 

Best of the rest

Who? Jonathan Richman
Where and When?
The Village, Dublin - 06/10

There aren't many other words to describe the original Modern Lover's last Dublin date in May of last year aside from lovely.  With 30 odd years of gigging behind him the man is now so comfortable and accomplished on stage that within minutes of starting to play he can have his audience eating out of his hand.  Richman is quite simply charm personified.  It doesn't hurt either that he has an amazing catalogue of material to draw from as well.
