The best domestic showcase for local bands? That would probably be the IMRO Showcase Tour, which has consistently proven its worth on past tours starring The Flaws, Oppenheimer, Fight Like Apes, Rosey and others.

This year’s instalment has featured 46 acts and 11 dates around the country in the past few weeks.

There are three Dublin gigs to come. The excellent Cap Pas Cap, Concerto for Constantine, New Amusement and Crimes Against are in the Sugar Club tonight.

The Kinetiks and The Infomatics are the pick of the bunch at the Hub next Thursday, while the Sugar Club must-sees on Friday the 18th include Hybrasil and Readers Wives
