It has been noted on this blog a few times that May is the mother of all months when it comes to gigs in Dublin. Well, thanks to Forever Presents, here’s a chance to go to see some top-drawer shows next month without having to pay a bean. We have ONE pair of tickets to give away to the following shows:

(1) The fantastic Octopus Project (video for “Truck” from the new album “Hello, Avalanche” below), with support from the excellent Duchess Says (Sugar Club, May 13)

(2) Xiu Xiu (Whelan’s, May 22)

(3) The lovely Silje Nes (we’re still loving her “Ames Room” album), with support from Madam (Whelan’s, May 23)

(4) The Young Republic (Sugar Club, May 27)

To win the booty, simply predict who is going to be in this year’s Champions League final. C’mon, there are only four teams left in it (well, three – you don’t really expect Chelsea to win on Wednesday, do you?). Entries close when Barcelona and Manchester United kick-off at Old Trafford tomorrow night. In the case of a tie, the poster who makes the funniest comment wins. Winner announced on Thursday morning.
