The Christmas season may be the nadir when it comes to quality live music but you can’t say the same about the beginning of 2008.

Once the quietest months of the year, January and February were already bursting at the seams with must-see gigs before these latest additions were added to the mix.

Dan Le Sac vs Scroobius Pip, creators of ’07 anthem Thou Shalt Always Kill, are one of the first off the blocks, playing Dublin’s Crawdaddy on January 18th.

One of 2008′s most intriguing prospects, Southend’s These New Puritans, hit the same venue on February 20th.

New York singer-songwriter (and holder of a recent Ticket CD of the Week accolade) Jaymay plays upstairs at Whelan’s in Dublin on February 11th.

And if you have just got a 2008 diary full of blank pages, you can put “The Breeders live in Vicar Street” in the space reserved for April 7th.
