It’s the first recessionary gigroll of 2009! All the new gig announcements we’ve heard about this week so far. If we’ve missed any, get thee to the comments field.

A Place To Bury Strangers play Dublin’s Whelan’s on March 31. They were here in December and played ALT so that’s a downgrade for the loudest band in NYC.

The lovely Imelda May’s Dublin show on March 12 has been switched from the Button Factory to Tripod. She also plays Galway’s Roisin Dubh on March 10 and Cork’s Pavilion on March 11. Yes, 2009 is going to be the year of the rockabilly revival.

Lloyd Cole will be spending two nights on Dublin’s Wexford Street when he plays Whelan’s on May 11 and 12 (and one night in Galway when he plays the Roisin Dubh on May 10)

The wonderful Ponytail play Whelan’s, Dublin on March 11

Contrary bugger Squarepusher plays an early show at Dublin’s Button Factory on April 25 and Belfast’s Stiff Kitten the following night.

Men in cloaks Tinariwen play Dublin’s Academy on October 17. Man, that’s months away – will there even be an economy by then? We’ll have to barter to get into the show.

And James Taylor, dude with guitar, plays Dublin’s 02 on July 3, which is the night after he plays Cork’s Live at the Marquee.
