This weekend’s Irish Green Gathering festival features Jinx Lennon, Giveamanakick (video below of band playing “Spring Break!” on RTE kids TV show), R.S.A.G., Margaret Healy, Ugly Megan and many more playing at Woodbrook House, Co Wexford. Organisers have been involved in a marathon sundance since midweek ahead of the fest.

Math-rock pioneers Don Caballero play their first ever Irish show at Dublin’s Crawdaddy on November 14th.

Cork-born, Barcelona-based house and techno producer Chymera returns to Ireland for dates at Stereotonic, Dublin, on August 15th and at the Solas Festival, Co Carlow, on August 17th.

Quote of the week: “Nobody”. Full-time miserabist Morrissey tells Israel’s Time Out magazine who he will be inviting to his forthcoming 50th birthday party. On The Record feels rather slighted.

Super Extra Bonus Party launch their new remix album with a Recession 2.0 special at ALT on October 10. It’s a tenner in and you get to see the band, (many) special guests and go home with a copy of the album. Here, I assume they haven’t lost that lovely trophy we gave them back in February. The cheque, I’d say, is long spent.
