Gigs happening this week


A list of events taking place over the next seven days in Dublin. This week I’m most looking forward to the Richter party, seeing Neon Indian live for the first time, the U:Mack party featuring Battles et al and the Bring the Toys event in Twisted Pepper on Saturday (I’m DJing upstairs at the Comic Cast event FYI). Surprise gig of the week is Kurt Vile in the Twisted Pepper, evidently a late booking.
