The Wu are coming! Well, some variation of the Wu-Tang Clan will be playing Irish shows in a few weeks. They play Cork’s Savoy on June 30 and Dublin’s Tripod on July 1. Ticket info to follow.

For those heading to the Forbidden Fruit beano at the weekend in Dublin, the running times are now available on the site. Plus, for those looking for some post-festival action, Erol Alkan will be DJ-ing at the POD on Saturday night and Caribou will be doing the same at the Button Factory the following night.

Q-Tip is back, kids. The Tribe Called Quest frontman plays Dublin’s Button Factory on August 24. Tickets from €30 (plus TM fees) now on sale.

Oxegen announced the line-up for their Dance Lean-To yesterday which will now be called the Red Bull Electric Ballroom which doesn’t quite have the same ring to it – though it’s better than some of the names we’ve heard it called in the past. Playing Charlie McCreevy’s big shed (which will be decorated as a “grand art-deco style ballroom”) will be Sven Väth, Tiga, Shit Robot, the great Maverick Sabre, the Bloody Beetroots, Diplo (can’t wait to see his tweets on his visit to Co Kildare), Crookers, Fake Blood, Alex Metric and tons more. Sweet line-up.

The Vaselines are incoming. The seminal Scottish combo play Dublin’s Whelan’s on July 12, Cork’s Cyprus Avenue (13) and Galway’s Roisin Dubh Galway (14)

Joining Eminem on the bill for the Vital festival at Ward Park, Bangor, Co Down on August 24 are Kaiser Chiefs, Jimmy Eat World, Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All, D12 and others to be announced. Tickets for this one go on sale on Friday at £49.50 (plus TM fees). We’re still hearing rumours that Em is also going to play Marlay Park in Dublin so can the promoters hurry up and announce that one please?
