A number of Irish venues have significant birthdays coming up. Dublin’s Vicar Street marks a decade in the live music and comedy business this autumn, while Dundalk’s excellent Spirit Store also reaches the 10-year mark in 2009.

Acts who will be helping the Caroline Street venue to mark its fifth birthday in October include Wallis Bird (23), Trans Am with Rest and Somadrone (25), Laura Izibor (26), Micah P Hinson with the Retribution Gospel Choir and Tilly & The Wall (29), Port O’Brien (30 – video for “I Woke Up Today” below) and Mercury Rev (31).
