It has been a busy couple of days for new gig announcements so here are a few which might tickle the going-out bones of OTR readers.

The awesome SBTRKT plays Mud at the Twisted Pepper, Dublin on February 25. Saw him (and Sempha) at Eurosonic and was very impressed. Admission is a tenner or €8 for Bodytonic members.

The Frames will be playing their best album, 2001′s “For the Birds”, in full at Vicar Street, Dublin on March 30. Tickets for this go on sale on Monday and are €30 (plus ticket agency fees). Support from Interference for this one.

The peerless John Grant brings his “Queen of Denmark” album (and some Czars’ songs too, I hope) to Dublin’s Button Factory (May 3, tickets €19.50 plus TM/Tickets.ie fees), Cork’s Cyprus Avenue (May 4, tickets €15 from Old Oak) and Galway’s Roisin Dubh (May 5, tickets €15/€12.50).

Laetitia Sadier was due to play Dublin in December but the snow made that one a SNAFU cancellation. The show has now been rescheduled for March 11 at the Grand Social. Support from Valerie Francis and Si Schroeder (his first live show in two years) and tickets are €13 and €12 (plus ticket agency fees).

Bjork collaborators Matmos play the Button Factory on May 11. Door tax is €20 (plus ticket agency fees).

It’s going to be a busy few months on Curved Street. Drive-By Truckers play Button Factory on May 7. Tickets are €20 (plus fees) for this one.

Really digging “Blue Songs”, the second album from Hercules & Love Affair, at the minute and they play ye olde Button Factory on March 17 (the poor feckers). Tickets are €22.50 (plus ticket agency fees)

I wasn’t overly impressed when I saw Phosphorescent supporting The National back in December but I liked their “Here’s To Taking It Easy” album a lot so I’ll give them the benefit of the doubt. They play the Workman’s Club on June 2 next and tickets are €18.45 (plus Tickets.ie/TM fees).

Egyptian Lover is coming to town! Hell, yeah. The dude behind such early electro-hop smash hits as “Egypt, Egypt” and “My Beat Goes Boom” plays Dublin’s Grand Social on February 11. Tickets are €13 (plus booking fees and ticket agency fees).

And finally, it’s Flash time! Grandmaster Flash hits The Village on February 18 for some turntable spills and thrills. The price of admission for this one is €12.50 (plus ticket agency fees). Dude’s a fecking living legend, y’all.
