A couple of weeks ago The Ticket published a comprehensive rundown of autumn/winter gig highlights. However, with promoters reckoning that the Irish music fan has an insatiable hunger for live music, that list has grown by the day.

Besides the usual suspects (hello David Gray) and repeat offenders (CSS return for their umpteenth Irish show in ’07) getting the cash together for the Christmas shopping, there are some very promising shows on the horizon.

Spiderman of the Rings daredevil Dan Deacon visits Galway(Róisín Dubh, November 30th), Sligo (Model Arts, December 1st) and Dublin (Whelan’s, December 2nd), while Sonic Youth’s Thurston Moore plays Dublin’s Tripod on December 4th.

Self-styled emergency rockers Cougar are at Whelan’s in Dublin on November 30th, Vic Chestnutt and his all-star indie band play Dublin’s Button Factory on December 1st and the excellent Fuyija & Miyagi are also there on December 16th.
