Hubba, hubba, hubba: Far Side favourite Skrillex is coming. He plays Dublin’s Academy on December 2 (tickets €25 plus TM fees) and Belfast’s Mandela Hall on December 3 (tickets £18.50 plus TM charges)

With A Little Help From Our Friends is a benefit gig to raise cash to help Lir pay off their legal costs after a 14 year court battle with a former manager over a 1995 US tour. Joining the Dublin band, the subject of a forthcoming Shimmy Marcus doc Good Cake Bad Cake, will be David Gray (Lir bassist Robbie Malone is in Gray’s band) and Pugwash. Gig happens at Dublin’s Vicar Street on September 24 and tickets are €26 (plus TM charges)

Sam Amidon is back. He does a I See the Sign AV show at Dublin’s Sugar Club on September 17. Tickets go on sale on Friday at €16.50 (plus TM charges) a pop.

Didn’t hear about this until yesterday but the great Jerry Dammers will be spending the bank holiday weekend on our highways and byways as he spins some tunes in Dublin (Button Factory, Thursday), Galway (Roisin Dubh, Sunday) and Cork (Crane Lane, Monday). Maybe he’ll come back again to do that Spatial AKA Orchestra gig which was on and then off back in 2008?
