More from the returns department: Marble City giants Engine Alley will be playing their first Dublin show this century in June.

A mainstay of the Irish music scene during the early and mid-1990s with their theatrical approach to Bowie-pop, the Alley went their separate ways in 1996 after a couple of well-received albums and a lot of eyeliner.

While the band have played a couple of hometown shows in the last few years, their date at Whelan’s on June 9th marks the Alley’s first excursion in the big smoke in some eight years.
