A couple of confirmed shows and a couple of shows we’ve heard about accompanied by a nod and a wink.

The ones which are happening:

Feist! Yes, Leslie Feist herself will be singing tunes from her wonderful album “The Reminder” (and her equally fine “Let It Die” and “Monarch” albums) at Dublin’s Tripod on September 25.

Regina Spektor! Spooky folk music from the classically trained New York singer with the well-regarded “Begin To Hope” album. She plays Tripod on August 30.

Underworld! They’re back! Lager! Lager! Lager! Etc! The new album is called “Oblivion With Bells” and it’s out in October. They play Belfast’s Kings Hall on October 6 and I reckon a Dublin show is also likely.

The ones which are happening which we shouldn’t know about:

Wilco! Yes, finally. I always feel like the boy who cried wolf when it comes to Wilco because they were supposed to play the Electric Picnic last year and this year but it never happened. This time, though, I think we can safely assume they will be playing a plush Dublin venue in November.

Animal Collective! “Strawberry Jam” is already sounding like a contender for one of the albums of the year. It’s the Panda Bear album with added hallucinogens and psychedelia and pop. Anyway, they’re also on the cards for Irish shows in the autumn.

Devendra Banhart! Everyone’s favourite hippy child will be rocking out at a venue near you in October. Lovely.

UPDATE – thanks to Emma for pointing out that LCD Soundsystem are playing Dublin’s Tripod on October 20. Good news for anyone who didn’t get an Electric Picnic ticket

UPDATE EILE – we hear from our favourite mole Deep Heat that Jose Gonzalez is on his way to Ireland this October too for shows in Dublin and Cork.
