Lots from the Good News Department this afternoon. Holy Fuck are coming to town. Our favourite Hogtown electronic mischief makers play Belfast’s Mandela Hall on April 9 and Dublin’s Whelan’s on April 10.

Is this really Rakim’s Irish debut? Wow, I assumed he’d already visited to avail of our largesse when it comes to long-in-the-tooth Yankee rappers. Anyway, he plays Dublin’s Tripod on April 25.

Battles are back. Two shows in 2007 and now, they step up to Vicar Street on May 15. Support from the excellent Liars.

Some people saw Ladytron at the Electric Picnic last year and thought they were smashing. They play Dublin’s Tripod on May 16

I’ve liked what I’ve heard of Norwegian lass Ane Brun to date so her gig on May 13 at Crawdaddy in Dublin is one to note.

Hark, what’s that we can hear in the distance? It’s the rumble of The Fall, limbering up for a trip to Dublin for the highly cultural and sophisticated St Patrick’s Weekend. They play Dublin’s Tripod on March 16.

And an excuse for a trip to the north: The Hold Steady (yes, the friggin’ Hold Steady) are playing Belfast’s Spring & Airbrake on May 14. Dates will surely be added in the dirty south.
