February 14th – €16.50
Black Midi bring their chaotic, profoundly energetic blend of genres to the Button Factory on the 14th of February.

With an extremely experimental slant to their tunes, this is bound to be an exciting show. Tickets from €16.50.
The Murder Capital
February 27th – €20.00
Post-punk outfit The Murder Capital take Vicar Street on the 27th of February. Based in Dublin, they released their first album, When I Have Fears, last year. Their music has drawn strong comparison to IDLES and fellow Dublin compatriots Fontaines D.C., and are known for delivering an extremely strong live show even more impactful than their studio material – described by the Guardian as “thrilling on the edge of terrifying”. Tickets are available from €20.00.
February 25th – €24.00
American rockers The Growlers will be playing at the Button Factory on the 25th of February.

Their unique melding of surf rock with loud and gritty garage stylings is sure to make for an interesting show for any discerning rock fan. Tickets from €24.00.
