The weekly plugathon. You know the score – plug away to your heart’s content but please declare an interest where relevant or one may be declared for you.

Garage rock fans rejoice: Billy Childish and the Musicians of the British Empire are at Dublin’s Whelan’s on January 16th.

Murmer Presents, the gig promoters formerly known as Sugarlips, are bringing French band Papier Tigre (video below) to Dublin’s Twisted Pepper on Sunday.

The Drogheda Traditional Music Weekend starts today and runs all weekend.

“Penny Black” was one of the better Irish releases of 2008 and its creator Chequerboard plays at Dublin’s Joy Gallery on December 6.

Banging double-bill of the weekend? That would be Women (forthcoming self-titled album on Jagjaguwar is excellent) supporting Chad VanGaalen (whose “Soft Airplane” album is also pretty fly) at Belfast’s Limelight tonight, Galway’s Roisin Dubh tomorrow night and Dublin’s Crawdddy on Sunday.
