Cork Gig Preview for September

Posted on Sep 2, 2011 in News

 
 

The usual lash of fantastic gigs are lining themselves up like lambs to the slaughter this month especially with the Beamish Cork Folk Festival pencilled in for Sept 29-Oct 2nd. On the bill are T with the Maggies, Julie Felix, Gemma Hayes,  Craobh Rua, Roy Bailey, Mundy and about another half-million acts.  

Hopefully making you aware of how much live music Cork has got on this month you won't cause a bout of 'Gig Panic' - this is a sudden burst of irrational movements due to the brain being overwhelmed by mouth watering choice. Symptoms include relentless foot tapping, singing to yourself, foaming at the mouth and unusual bowel movements. If you experience this please consult your nearest music venue for advice or just cop on and make a plan.

Here there lah:

 

Cork: a more vibrant live music city than all the others put together - including Vegas. Probably.
