With promoters finding it difficult to shift tickets for more and more shows, expect the “unforseen circumstances” excuse to make a lot of appearances in the coming months to explain away why shows are cancelled.

Maybe the answer to punter apathy is more recession-busting gigs?

Dublin indie promoters Foggy Notions think so and they’ve put together a fine new music four-pack for next month.

The bash features Baltimore’s Ponytail (who have just released their new album “Ice Cream Spiritual”), rising Kilkenny electronica act R.S.A.G., Dublin’s Vinny Club and London’s Gentle Friendly.

Tickets for the show, at Whelan’s in Dublin on September 10, are 14 euro.
