Milky Chance – February 2nd – Vicar Street
Alternative rock-come-folk music outfit ‘Milky Chance’ take to the stage on Vicar Street at the beginning of February. The group have been around for the best part of a decade now, bringing us hits such as ‘Stolen Dance’ and ‘Flashed Junk Mind’. The German group have sold out every prior gig in Dublin and graced the main stage at Longitude back in 2017. They are currently touring their new album ‘Mind the Moon’ and if you were lucky enough to bag a ticket, you’re in for a treat. Expect nothing but good vibes from this unique group.
Local Boy – February 6th – Whelan’s
Local Boy of Dublin based ‘Burner Records’ will be making a long-due appearance in Whelan’s. Just off the back of his ‘Local Boy Ruins Everything’ EP, the Dublin man will be rocking out with his label mates and his band. If you’re looking for music ranging from rap to rock, this is the gig for you. With tickets for only 8 euro and support from Sourfruit it would be a shame to miss one of Dublin’s newest underground artists.
Craic Boi Mental – February 14th – The Workman’s Club
Cork’s biggest rapper is making a trip up to Dublin to give us one of the most romantic and intimate gigs on Valentine’s night. Craic Boi Mental has been churning out music for all of 2019. His ‘Cork City Anthems’ album was massively successful. Craic Boi has one of the most unique sounds and with his ‘Craickevilli’ EP around the corner, this could be one of the hottest nights to hit Workman’s in a long time.
