A couple of very tasty Choice Cuts gigs ahead in the coming months.

Ace Parisian beatsmaster Onra plays Dublin’s Twisted Pepper on September 18.

Soul and doo-wop throwback (but with loads of oomph) and New Music pick Mayer Hawthorne plays Galway’s Roisin Dubh on October 30 and Dublin’s Crawdaddy on October 31. Unsolicited tip for OTR’s fave radio jock Ronan Collins: dude, this guy will sound only swell on your show, maybe alongside Raphael Saadiq.

LA new-school lo-groove maestro Dam Funk plays Dublin’s Twisted Pepper on October 23 and Cork’s Pavilion on October 25.

Barack Obama’s favourite brassers the Hypnotic Brass Ensemble play Galway’s Roisin Dubh on October 22, Cork’s Pavilion (23), Dublin’s Button Factory (24) and Limerick’s Trinity Rooms (25). They’re also playing EP ’09.
