On The Record recently noted that January and February are no longer the dead months of the year when it comes to live music.

As if to further emphasise the fact, a whole host of new live shows were announced for the weeks ahead while you were eating turkey, ham and all the trimmings.

1406-11_72dpi.jpgThe new additions include Chrome Hoof (right), the world’s only 12-strong space jazz metal combo in sparkly monk’s clobbers (Whelan’s Dublin, February 12), Canuck rockers Islands (Whelan’s, Dublin, February 18 and The Speakeasy, Belfast, February 19) and Washington DC’s ear-popping electro-folkies Le Loup (Crawdaddy Dublin, February 21 with support from the excellent School Of Language).

There will also be visits from Berlin’s To Rococo Rot (Sugar Club, Dublin, February 21) and Little Miss Sunshine soundtrackers DeVotchKa (Crawdaddy, Dublin, April 5), while Cathy Davey plays her biggest capital city show yet at Tripod on February 21.
